Hubby, father-in-law and I went for a 4-day trip to Surigao last October and we managed to squish-in a day trip to Siargao, Philippine’s surfing capital. Though there is much to see and enjoy at Siargao for just a day or so, we were lucky to have gone to 3 of their must-go-to havens. One of which is the very famous Cloud 9 in General Luna, Magpupungko tidal Beach in Pilar and the Naked Beach in Dapa.
From Surigao, we were aboard a RoRo Ferry since we traveled with a private vehicle. Fare for four persons plus the vehicle would total to round about P5,600 one way. It’s a 4-hour trip from Surigao Port. It’s a fair bit long trip so might as well bring something that can ease away boredom and one that’ll help you forget about how far away the trip will be.
These photos below were taken at Magpupungko beach, located at Pilar Siargao. Unluckily for us, the best time to visit this amazing beach is during low tide and the moment we arrived there was exactly when the tides were high. Magpupungko beach is commonly visited by tourists due to it’s Magpupungko rock formation; which some would describe as, a carving of different pool sizes reminiscent of basins and tubs which reveals its true beauty when the tides are low. However, we didn’t get to see any of that. I’d definitely come back to this paradise as apart from Magpupungko rock formation, one on the bucket list that we haven’t gotten around visiting was the famous Sohoton Cave.
Since the tide was too high to get around the famous pool of rock formation, I just took advantage of the beauty of the Magpupungko beach itself which was surrounded by white, glistening sand..
Beautiful white sand beach isn’t it? being around this place even just for a little while, I felt like I was in a secluded beach where all you have are praises for it’s dazzling beauty and serenity.
Photos below were taken at Cloud 9 located in the town of General Luna, the most famous must-visit place in Siargao. This is where all surfing lovers and even foreign nationales adjoin to have a feel of the hummering waves of the sea. This is also the place where annual Surfing cup is held where domestic and international surfers come to take part. Again, when we arrived here the tide was low and the best time to come is when the waves are crazy high.
I’d surely want to visit this place again nd hopefully next time it’s a longer stay…
