Blue Cathedral is a majestic wonder, a cathedral-like structure underneath the ocean. It is surrounded with flower-like plants that resemble a garden. Blue Cathedral’s top is a 20-meter diameter hole at a depth of 20 meters. Then as you descend into it, there’s a sliding slope that leads to its two caverns—the North and East caverns.

Where to stay
We’re all looking for something. a bit of magic that lights us up, the perfect wave, that feeling. Our mission is to be your partner in crime. To hold your hair back. To push you into that wave. We promise to give you everything you need to dive head first into the adventure of your something. With the backdrop of teal pealing waves, palm tree shadows and sun-kissed sunsets, Siargao is where you find your freedom.
Every adventure starts somewhere…and yours starts here. Nestled between a sleepy local village full of groms waiting to give you a high five and the deep blue Pacific Ocean, lies Punta Punta Point. Not long ago, this piece of paradise was accessible only by jungle road or private boat (still our preferred method of arrival), however, it remains a little secret – close to the action and far from the noise. From our plunge pool, you can see the epic barreling waves at Cloud 9 and within minutes you can be at the best bars and restaurants General Luna has to offer. Yet, you won’t hear more than a rooster’s crow or splashing waves during your afternoon massage. Punta Punta is the best of both worlds. Far away, but so close.
The recipe for adventure is a simple one but the ingredients are critical: an appetite for new experiences, an openness to the unknown and fuel to motivate you to keep going. And that’s where the guest-only bar café at Punta Punta comes in. We offer an inclusive healthy, adventure-fuel breakfast menu, as well as organic and locally-sourced made-to-order lunch and dinner. Grab your grub and join us around the bonfire for a dinner picnic!
More than just another place to stay, Punta Punta brings together like-minded people with a sense of adventure and a passion for the water. The natural beauty of Siargao is the perfect backdrop for your creativity and inspiration to flow. Punta Punta was born from the convergence of the thirst for a sense of home amidst a place of adventure. We have learned to thrive off the small joys in life and hope you take home a slice of the island life with you.
