Very nice beach with rock pools. Quite nice for paddling your feet and swimming in when the tide is low. You have to pay entry of around 60 pesos (I think) each for entry, and an extra 5 pesos for a bike fee. This doesn’t include parking though so you have to pay for this too, which is 20 pesos. Unfortunately there are a lot of kids on the beach who pester you and want to take you to the rock pools for a fee. This got really annoying very quickly, and they only left us alone after about 20 minutes of harassment once I raised my voice and almost shouted at them. Just beware of this and try to stay clear and not let them ruin the experience.

Beautiful but packed with people. Bring water shoes or booties because hard to walk on the rocks. The water was comfortably warm.

This paradise is better on the low tide. You can go 2 hours before the low tide to avoid the crowds.
The drive on moto from General Luna takes more than 1h. It was quite tiring, but the views were amazing. Avoid coming back at dark.
Please make sure to take all your trash back. Of possible, take a few extra trash from the unpolished persons. You will feel very good doing that.

It was one of the best attractions of siargao. I wasn’t able to come here in my past visit to the island but i got to come here on my second visit. I was really happy to have too! The pools are breathtaking and I haven’t been to such a nice rock pool and so clear too. There are a lot of watchers here so you wont need to worry about things happening. But I would say, just make sure to take your bathroom break before coming here as it is quite far.

I would visit this place again but next time by car, i think it took us almost an hour by the tricycle or maybe 2 hours. I would suggest just renting a car and coming here by car.

I've visited this place several times; on most it's low tide and summer. You'll only experience the full beauty of Magpupungko Beach and Rock Pools if it's low tide.

When you visit on rainy season you can only enjoy the beach, which is as common as any other beaches in PH, unless you're strong swimmer and would risk your life to experience the rock pools even with strong water current and waves - which I did, and it's still isn't as nice as when you actually get to chill in the rock pool without worrying for your dear life.

Eating of Saang. Love the experience of grill Saang in the charcoal. And broke it with hammer. Hopefully, they will use the rubber mallet.

Must see in Siargao but only during low tide and it closes for two months and during high tides. Check before going or go towards mid March.

This was the first stop during our two days' Siargao tour. Nice, big waves and great view, as well as a rock-laden turquoise "swimming pool" on the side.

Very crowded during low tide. You can snorkel there and there’s a tight underwater swim-through for the adventurous.

Despite the crowds, it is possible to find a quiet spot to enjoy the site.
