Secret Beach

The Secret Beach is one of the spots included in the island hopping options in El Nido. The beach can be found in between the towering limestone cliffs. To get to this secluded spot, you need to swim through a narrow crevice, under huge rocks, and come out on the other side where the beach is. 

Depends on how good of a swimmer you are, doing this can be a tad challenging since waves and currents can be strong. Your tour guide will help you swim through - he will wait for you on the side of the opening and pushes you in at the right moment. There is only a small headspace between the rocks so you have to be careful while navigating to the other side, where clear waters, fine white sand, and surrounding limestone cliffs await you.

The secluded beach is just a small round space, so there's nothing much to do but swim, snorkel, and generally just chill until your guides tell you that you have to leave.  Also, you can ask your boatmen and tour guides to help you take gorgeous pictures - most of them are more than willing to climb on top of the cliff to take awesome panoramic pictures and group shots from afar.

How to get there

Book a guided tour or take a ferry to Talisay Beach from El Nido town or along Bacuit Bay.

Best time to visit

This is an all-year round destination, however take note of the weather conditions before you plan your trip as heavy rains might occur, especially during off-peak season.

Entrance fee

Tour C island hopping costs per person. Additional expenses include eco-tourism development fee, snorkel gear rental, private boat rental depending on the number of passengers and size of the boat, and whole-day kayak rental.

The lunch is included in the tour fee but it's best to bring your own snacks and water during the trip. You can also bring your own snorkel gear if you want to save money.
