Marvelous Magpopongko

The lagoon is totally immersed under the swift currents during high tide making it impossible for swimming.

The crystal clear waters of the lagoon bordered by the nature-designed edges of the flat floor of the reef makes the natural pool. This amazing lagoon is worthy of the long wait for the low tide. Emerald as it appears, nobody can resist its tempting call for a swim.

On the background is the Magpopongko Rock Formation and scenic view of big waves crashing into the pacific end of the reef's flat floor. Closer and face to face look of the big waves is possible but one should take caution of the unpredictable tides that brings swift currents.


Undergoing developments when we were there sometime in April this year was the construction of the cottage overlooking the sea with around 6 rooms and a pathway passing through a cavern that leads to the lagoon. Before, the lagoon is only accessible during low tide through the emptied shore. Now, the local municipal government has made a dramatic pathway leading to the lagoon.

Wow ang ganda ng place. Kahit umuulan na eh parang nang-eenganya na magpunta uli ako sa beach.

The Islander said...

@vanessa: hi! ok, will drop you a message the soonest.



@lawstude: torney, mainit na mainit pa rin dito sa surigao ngayon. burning like hell nga eh. kaya swak na swak pa ring magbeach.

Indeed, Surigao has lots of beautiful spots to offer. Why go to Phuket in Thailand if we can enjoy a much better place like what we have here. Sus, mobisita gyod ko sa Surigao kung makauli ko sa Butuan ug maka-estar ug dugay didto. I couldn't wait for my retirement just so I can explore this place.
By the way, it's raining for quite a lot here and baha pa gyod. Maayo ka pa diha kay you're blessed with an extended summer heat...
A rainy greetings here in Manila...
