Magpupungko Rock Pool is an ideal spot for cliff jumping, swimming, and ofc photoshoots. From General Luna, where most of the tourist accommodations are, Magpupungko Rock Pool is just a 45-minute motorbike ride. Its formation is unbelievably beautiful but there is a catch though! On some days, this Siargao tourist spot is closed to tourists so be sure to check before you make the trip there. And before going to Magpupungko, make sure about your preferred time of visit because the area gives unique experiences during the low tide and high tide. If you’ve only got few days to spare on the island, be sure not to miss Magpupungko Rock Pools in your Siargao itinerary. And oh by the way, Magpupungko Rock Pool tends to get crowded and only accessible during low tide so plan your visit well.

If Naked Island is completely bare, Guyam Island offers a totally different setting yet equally scenic. This Siargao tourist destination is surrounded by a lush clump of vegetation. Guyam Island is uninhabited except for the island’s caretakers. It has two sides—the rocky beach and the sandy beach, both are very instagrammable. There are many coconut trees in this Siargao tourist spot where you can let yourself get lost in the moment. There are few huts available on the beach so you can just chill out and enjoy your solitude.

Your local Siargao guide will help you find the best cook on the island and enjoy it on a boodle fight! And unlike the other two beaches mentioned above, there are a lot more things to do in Daku Island from kayaking to fishing.

After seeing the Coconut Island and Coconut Road, you shouldn’t also miss the bent coconut tree in Maasin River. The most interesting part here is that, you can swing back and forth from the rope attached to the tree and let yourself plunge in about 6ft. deep water.

This small Siargao cafe is just along the road of General Luna, and is something you shouldn't miss. Yeah Yeah Cupsicles is an ice cream shop and a bar at the same time. It's the same area as the Fat Lips store. 

You should try their ice cream on cups. They won't give you a spoon though. So, how are you gonna eat it? Simple, just rub the cup with your both hands until the ice cream pops up and there, eat it like a kid. The banana and chocolate flavors are the best!

Jacking Horse Siargao got its name because of the way the waves that jack at the peak, smashing into the reef. The place is best surfed between mid to high tide. The waves are manageable for those trying to balance and get their timing right that’s why this is perfect for beginners. 

There’s nowhere quite like Siargao. It’s the kind of place where you can do nothing but to relax; a place where you can find serenity… and love.

It’s not difficult to see why Siargao was named as the best island in Asia according to Conde Nast Traveler Magazine.
