Mongpong island, offers a different type of seashores, from white sands, to rugged, dramatic, corralled and rocky that gives a different consciousness to all tourists either local, domestic,or foreign.
Ungab rock formation is located in Sitio Ungab, eastern side of barangay island, Mongpong, in Sta. Cruz, Marinduque. The rock formation is often called as “Balogbog Baboy” by the locals of Marinduque.
The Ungab rock formation looks like a natural arch with about 100 feet above sea water and a natural bridge.
Worth to mentioned the unusual beauty plus the crystal clear water added to the place that made it look more stunning. At the back of the rock formation is a cave, that added attraction and adventure in the site and to the visitors.
