Set foot on El Nido's secluded shores and serene islets while aboard a private speedboat through this island-hopping tour C. This experience is best suited for those wanting to avoid crowds as you will have the boat to yourself as well to explore attractions like Hidden Beach, Secret Beach, Helicopter Island and more. This package is inclusive of the service of a guide, all necessary fees, and a buffet lunch with drinks. 

You will meet up with your guide at the floating dock in El Nido's town proper on your chosen date. From there, you will ride the private speedboat to your first destination: Hidden Beach. This white-sand hideaway is not easy to see from afar as tall limestone cliffs surround it. To reach its shore, you will have to swim or kayak through a small opening between the cliffs. 

Next, you will make your way to a similar spot called Secret Beach. Much like Hidden Beach, this idyllic shore is bordered by karst cliffs and can only be accessed via a gap between the limestones. Take the time to wade into the cool waters or relax on the sand before heading back to your boat. Afterward, you will be going to the Matinloc Shrine on Matinloc Island. 

This shrine sits on one of the island's peaks and provides a scenic view of El Nido and the nearby isles. From there, you will travel to Star Beach, a popular snorkeling spot, before continuing onto Talisay Beach. This shore boasts crystal waters and is a popular spot for lunch by the sea. 

After enjoying your seaside lunch and a short break, it's time to head to the tour's last stop: Helicopter Island. This helicopter-shaped islet is best known for its surrounding waters, which are home to a vibrant underwater ecosystem. As one of the best snorkeling spots in El Nido, you will find colorful schools of fish here as well. 

Go on a tropical excursion in El Nido, Palawan, by booking this island-hopping speedboat tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
