MANILA—Heads up to those looking to travel to Siargao this month.

The popular Sugba Lagoon is due to be closed off to tourists for a month for rehabilitation.

This is part of the annual initiative by the local government to preserve its popular tourist spots, reports online said, and this year's cleanup will run from January 10 to February 10.


The Sugba Lagoon is best known for its pristine, blue-green waters and has been one of the go-to places for cliff divers. Local website Spot also noted the place for its delicious seafood.

It was featured in the movie, "Siargao," starring Kapamilya stars Jericho Rosales and Erich Gonzales, which was named Second Best Picture of the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival.

During the closure, boats and tourists will not be allowed in the area.
