1. Magpupungko Beach

Magpupungko Beach is a small stretch of cream colored sand beach with a great view of sunrise. But this is not your usual beach because of amazing rock formations and tidal pools in the northern end of the Magpupungko crafted by nature itself. The pool itself is calm and clear, and is the most visited natural attraction in the island. The water is so inviting that you want to take a dip once you see it. Visit the pools at low tide for best experience.

5. Naked Island

The Naked Island is a sandbar without any plants or trees growing except for some bushes around it, just pure white sand and clear water – hence the name ‘naked’. The island becomes smaller during high tide as some parts sink a few feet. It is highly suggested to visit the island during low tide. Naked Island is also a perfect place to get a tan without getting bugged by the crowd.

If you’ve ever dreamed of an island without any parties by the beach until early morning and no loud music, definitely you will love Siargao. The peaceful atmosphere on the island makes you want to stay forever. It is so much more than just a surfing destination and will be one of your favorite places in the Philippines.
