Make the most of your vacation in El Nido by booking this shared island-hopping tour C that will take you to some of the best tourist spots in the area on a speedboat. This tour already comes with a shared speedboat, government taxes and ecotourism development fund, entrance fees, and the assistance of a guide, so all you have to do is enjoy and relax during the trip. This tour can also be upgraded to a private tour, and you may purchase packed lunch as an add-on.

Your guide will be waiting for you in front of Marygold Beach Resort 20 minutes before your scheduled tour. After meeting your guide, you will board the shared speedboat that will take you around El Nido. If you have decided to upgrade your tour to a private one, you and your group will have your own private speedboat for the tour.

After settling in the shared speedboat, you will head to Hidden Beach, the first stop on this day tour. Named so because of its secluded location, Hidden Beach has white sand, limestone formations, and calm blue waters perfect for a relaxing swim. 

Next, you’ll head to Secret Beach. Similar to Hidden Beach, this beach is secluded. To get to the beach, you have to swim through a narrow hole in the limestone cliffs. It’s not the easiest beach to get to, but you will be rewarded with a beautiful beach view framed by towering cliffs. Pause and appreciate the surroundings before heading to your next destination, Matinloc Shrine. 

The Shrine of Our Lady of Matinloc is located on Matinloc Island. Don’t expect a working shrine, as it has been unused for a long time. The abandoned structures make for unique photos, so don’t forget to bring a camera! You can also climb part of the cliffs to get a stunning view of the island and its surroundings.

You’ll visit Star Beach next. Above water, you’ll see towering limestone cliffs dotted with vegetation, but snorkeling will allow you to explore its lush underwater world. Just nearby is Talisay Beach, a small beach perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and just relaxing. 

Helicopter Island will be the last stop for this tour. The island got its name from its helicopter shape that can be seen from afar. Up close, you’ll see soft white sand and blue waters. Take in everything before heading back to the boat and back to the mainland. 

Go on an El Nido speedboat adventure and explore different beaches when you book this shared island-hopping tour C. Check the availability by choosing a date.
