Siargao, Philippines : Boardwalk + Magpupungko Rock Pools

The boardwalk is located along Cloud 9. Zubz & i rode over from General Luna (which is where our resort is located) to check out the area. General Luna & Cloud 9 are side by side along one ling stretch of road. 

There were quite a number of surfers at Cloud 9 surfing. It was nice watching em surf, busting out some insane moves. Lol. The scenery in Siargao is crazy beautiful! The clouds are huge & fluffy, it looks so much like a painting.

 Magpupungko Rock Pool

Best timing to visit the rock pools: 9am-3pm
App to download (to check the tide): Magic Seaweed

*You can only go into the rock pool when it is low tide!

Magpupungko Rock Pool is located in Dapa. It's roughly an hour ride from General Luna to Dapa. Ask your resort for a map on how to get there they will even show you how to get there. 

Rental of a motorcycle for 1 whole day cost SGD8-10 (300-350pesos) 
1 Litre of petrol cost SGD1.20 (35-40 Pesos)

It's really cheap & the roads in Siargao is properly done up. Although i do need to add that they do not wear helmets whilst riding. They didn't provide us with helmets either when we rented the bike through the resort. 

Magpupungko Rock Pools is a must visit place! It's super pretty & a great place to chill. The water is so clear & turquoise!
