Getting Emo at Magpupungko Beach

Magpupungko Beach

I went to the Magpupungko Beach in Siargao last September. I went to Siargao alone. I’ve heard great things about this beach. So even though we were threatened with a gloomy day that morning, my habal2x driver and I went out to see this beach.

It was a bumpy 1.5-hour ride to reach to this side of Siargao. When we arrived in the area, no one was around. Even the resort’s booth was closed. I was to pay P50 to access this resort but I guess the staff didn’t wake up early after partying at the nearby town of General Luna as they were celebrating the town’s fiesta that weekend. Am not complaining or anything. I was very willing to pay my entrance fee but it seemed no one was around to collect it. hehehe

The uncooperative weather was so obvious that day. The sea looked like it was complaining hard with all those huge waves splashing the shore and the corals at bay on the other side.

Although I wanted to take a dip in there, I didn’t. I didn’t feel like swimming on my own at that time. I realized that there are those places were you need the company of friends to enjoy a not so serene beach like that.

I was also disappointed as I expected to wade the shallow waters and corals of the beach during low tide to see the magnificent natural pool hidden beneath those rocks at the farthest cove of that beach. I knew I was going to arrive in the area when the tide was high. Some folks suggested to visit Magpupungko beach at those times. But foolish me didn’t think that that meant failing to see the natural pool. Of course. How can I see it when it’s fully covered with those splashy sea waves.

Oh well. I guess I’ll have to come back there someday. And when that time comes, I’ll make sure I bring along friends with me so that the trip would be more enjoyable.
