El Nido Big Lagoon Speedboat Island Hopping Tour A + Optional Upgrade to Private Tour
Hop on a speedboat and enjoy some of El Nido’s top tourist attractions with this shared island-hopping tour A. Aside from a shared speedboat, this tour also comes with the assistance of a tour guide, government taxes and ecotourism development fund, and entrance fees, so it’s perfect for those who are looking for a relaxed tour in El Nido. This tour can also be upgraded to a private tour, and you may purchase packed lunch as an add-on.
Head to the floating dock in front of Marygold Beach Resort to meet up with your guide. Make sure you arrive at least 20 minutes before your tour schedule. Your guide will then escort you to the shared speedboat that will take you around El Nido and its islands. Take note that if you upgrade to a private tour, you won’t have to share a speedboat with other tourists. It’s a great opportunity to bond with your group.
Your first stop is either Big Lagoon or Small Lagoon. Both lagoons have emerald waters that are surrounded by towering limestone cliffs. Big Lagoon is grander in its scale, but swimming is not usually encouraged here because of the sea urchins. Visitors can appreciate the lagoon while in their boats or by renting a kayak. On the other hand, you can safely swim in Small Lagoon, but you need to be mindful of the sharp rocks.
Secret Lagoon is your next stop. This lagoon is also surrounded by limestone formations that are the perfect backdrop for your travel photos. You can also enjoy a refreshing dip here or relax at the beach near the lagoon before heading to Shimizu Island. This island in Bacuit Bay is a prime spot for snorkeling, thanks to the marine life that inhabits its waters.
You’ll next head to West Entalula Beach. This beach may be small compared to some of El Nido’s beaches, but you will be mesmerized by the crystal clear waters and soft white sand.
After taking in the stunning views, you’ll visit Seven Commandos Beach, your last stop for this tour. The gentle waves near the beach make it a great stop for swimming, and you can also purchase a snack or a drink from one of the stalls near the beach.
