Day 1: Magpupungko Pool + Tayangban Cave + Cloud 9/Boardwalk

Our day 1 was intended for a land tour. So after we checked in at Patrick’s on the Beach Resort (check their link here:, we just changed to our swimming attire and off we went to our first stop, Magpupungko Pool.


This amazing beach is 45 minutes to an hour away from our resort and from General Luna. Here we can find wonderful rock formations, a tidal wave (but not allowed for swimming or surfing as the wave and current are strong), and of course, the famous pool-like lagoon. There is an entrance fee that I forgot. 🙂 You can also bring some foods and rent a table inside. By the way, it is best to visit here when it\’s high tide.

This place is best for picture taking whether with the pool, the waves, the ocean, the rocks or the seashore. You can also enjoy here swimming in the pool and do some cliff diving.


Our next stop is the newly opened Tayangban Cave. An entrance fee of Php 20.00 (if I am not wrong). You can now enjoy swimming, cliff diving and tarzan swinging in their own natural pool. However, if you want some spelunking, you just have to pay another entrance fee and tour guide. The spelunking just takes around 15-25 minutes.


Our last stop is the famous surfing spot, Cloud 9 and the perfect place for sunset, Boardwalk. Here we just spent our time taking pictures especially it was sunset and goofing around. 🙂

The Boardwalk.
Perfect Sunset View

That ends our Day 1 Tour. Of course, some BBQ dinner, bottle of drinks and that card game. 😛
