Magpupungko Tidal Flats and Lagoon – My Siargao Adventure (Part 6)
Probably if you plan to go to a beach you would wish that it will be high tide. Right? Who would enjoy the beach if the waters are all gone? Well, it might be a different case if you plan to go to Magpupungko Tidal Flats and Lagoon in Pilar, Siargao Island. You’d wish it is always a low tide. You can only appreciate the beauty of the beach much when it is low tide.
Right after we checked out at The Boardwalk Resort in Cloud 9, we immediately headed to Pilar to visit this place. And yes, we already made sure that it was low tide. We arrived at around 1PM. It was raining the whole time so the weather was not cooperating that time. As posted at the gate, there is an entrance fee of PhP 50.00/head. We did not really take much of our time since we just did sightseeing and a short splash so they only charged us PhP25.00 for the whole group. Plus, the amenities were not so good. The showers were not working, good thing it was raining so my friends only used the rainwater and rinsed themselves.
At first glance, the beach is ordinary… sandy, surrounded by coconut trees, noisy caused by the sea waves… yeah everything is ordinary. But on the far left, there lies a tidal flat and a lagoon which makes this place very extra ordinary. From the entrance of the beach, we went through a very rocky path just to get near the lagoon. It was drizzling and we did not have any umbrellas so we did sacrifice a little just to be there. lol
Yet our sacrifices paid off when we saw the lagoon and stepped on the tidal flats. Too bad, I did not expect the area could be so nice. I did not bring clothes for swimming. If only I knew. Anyway, I did enjoy seeing my friends swimming the turquoise clear waters of the lagoon. The place was surrounded by rocks and you can hear the relaxing sound of the waves. Everything was lovely and natural.
This place is a WOWer! It is surprising! Unique. I can imagine how blessed the people in Siargao for having so many wonderful places! I will definitely go back here one day and swim. Well, thank you guys for reading!
