Exploring Tayangban Cave Pool- Siargao Island
When we saw the sign foe Tayangban Cave Pool on the side of the road, we thought it would be just that, a pool. What we didn’t realize was that in order to get there, you can go through a pitch black cave system.
In this guide, I will show you where to find Tayangban Cave Pool, and what to expect once you arrive.
HOW TO GET TO TAYANGBAN CAVE POOL- SIARGAO ISLAND
Tayangban Cave Pool is located basically in the middle of Siargao Island. In order to get there, you will need to either hire a motorbike or a car. It is roughly a 30-minute drive from General Luna and is absolutely gorgeous. We may have stopped to play with some puppies at one point.
If you plan on renting a motorbike, the prices in Siargao can be quite expensive compared to the rest of the Philippines. I recommend a longer rental period. If you only rent for one or two days you are looking at 500 Pesos per day. Thomas and I rented for 12 days so it was 300 Pesos per day.

I have attached a map below of the exact location to Tayangban Cave Pool.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Once you arrive you at Tayangban Cave Pool, you will need to sign in and pay an entrance fee of 100 pesos each and that included a guide. This is not a place where you can go without a guide, nor will they let you. Once we were finished we tipped him 100 Pesos as well. While we were in the cave we left our camera gear with them and came out to find our stuff safe, so don’t worry about that.
It is a short little cave winding experience but absolutely thrilling! It is pitch black. Thomas and I have no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Luckily I had the WATER HOUSING so I tried to get a few photos!
You will come out of the cave to beautiful blue pools filled with cute little tadpoles. There are two spots to jump from, the tallest spot is only 5 meters, and the other is probably 2 meters! When Thomas and I were there, there was sun shining through the trees and made for the craziest sight when you jumped into the water, I can’t really explain it.
Once you finish, you can check out MAGPUPUNGKO ROCK POOLS, they are only about 20 minutes away.
I hope you enjoyed this post! All images were captured using a variety of my TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY ESSENTIALS.
