Guide to Sugba Lagoon and Land Tour Siargao

My Sugba Lagoon and Land tour was my last official joiner tour. It was as exciting for me as my Sohoton Cove and Tri-Island tour because I tried diving for the first time at Sugba Lagoon!!!

To walk you through my Sugba Lagoon and Land tour, here’s a list of its inclusion for a price of PHP 1,799:

  • Sugba Lagoon
  • Magpupungko Rock Pool
  • Maasin Enchanted River
  • Tayangbang Cave
  • Mountain Overlooking View
  • Pacifico Lighthouse
  • Pacifico Beach
  • Baybay Road of Palms

If you’re coming from General Luna, you’ll already pass by the overlooking view. I’m not sure why I wore yellow, but I looked like a ripe mango in the middle.

Tip: If you’re looking to score bamboo straws, there are street vendors selling some here for only PHP 50 for a whole set (maybe around 15 to 20 pcs) in different sizes. I wish I realized sooner that it was pretty cheap! I wasn’t able to find some in General Luna (or maybe I didn’t explore much).

The next stop was Sugba Lagoon. It took us about 45 minutes from General Luna to Del Carmen port.

My number one advice for this is to JUST DIVE. Please, please dive at Sugba Lagoon even if you don’t know how to swim. I felt brave for a moment, and I think everyone should feel that even for once.

I was really scared at first, but I didn’t have any time to hesitate while I was already there because of the long line! Can you believe that the thought of people waiting in line drove me to just do it?

But once I got to it, I wanted to do it again. Also, ask someone to take a video of you!

Sugba Lagoon has other activities like paddleboarding and kayaking. You can stay for up to 3 hours, though I’m not sure if that includes the 1-hour roundtrip boat.

We had lunch as soon as we got back to Del Carmen port and went on with the Land tour.

Be mindful of the time as you wouldn’t want to miss Magpupungko Rock Pool on a low tide, which according to the tour guide is from around 12 PM to 3 PM. It still depends on the day (I think) so be sure to check with your tour guide or maybe online.

This is the popular rock formation that I guess looks like a head?

There’s also a spot for big waves so be careful as it can be slippery – you might hurt yourself on a sharp rock!

We weren’t able to catch the perfect low tide, yet it was enough to witness the turquoise water.

Our tour ended with Baybay Road of Palms. You really have to be patient and wait until all the cars are gone to capture that perfect picture.

WOW Siargao is a good tour provider—their Facebook reviews are so far all positive. However, if you would like to support independent locals, I suggest you just go to the Del Carmen port early in the morning. The boatmen are more than willing to accommodate you. You can also do a private boat or join other on-the-spot tourists looking for joiners, too.

The upside of getting a tour provider, I guess, is that you don’t have to settle fees and worry about your lunch as they will take care of them for you (unless stated otherwise).

Overall, Sugba Lagoon and Land tour is super worth it. For more information, read my full Siargao itinerary.
