Two Guys getting ready to enter the warm waters of the lagoon.
Magpupungko is a place I am tempted to not write about because I want to keep it all for myself. The Philippines are amazing in general, but the Magpupunkgko Lagoon was amazing and deserted. It gave the satisfying affect of discovery and solitude being the only group at such a cool place. The water in the lagoon is very warm, a more buoyant person than myself could comfortably sleep in it. The lagoon itself is a giant tide pool carved out of the coral, and if you swim to the edge, you can look out over fields of coral to breaking waves,creating a natural infinity pool effect.

A view of Monte Louro, Lagoa de Xalfas and the Atlantic Ocean outside of Muros, Spain
Monte Louro is a small peninsular mountain wedged between the Atlantic Ocean and a small lagoon, Lagoa Xalfas, in Galicia, Spain. The Monte Louro Nature Preserve is accessible from AC-550, just north of the town of Muros. It’s a great day trip from Santiago de Compostela, just 45 miles if you take the coastal route, or if you want to stay the night campsites are available.
