The Cave Pool at Siargao was just recently discovered and is definitely a must-see; swimming in the natural pools and exploring caves are just the beginning. The spring-fed pool appeared as if it had been carved out from the solid limestone wall that enveloped it.
The tour consists on discovering the island with a local tour guide. Book it in the reception and My Siargao Guide will be happy to assist you.
