Discover the beauty of some of the best secret and hidden beaches of El Nido in this private island-hopping tour. This excursion is perfect for travelers who want to explore unspoiled beaches in El Nido. This tour includes roundtrip licensed boat transfers, entrance fees to all destinations, a picnic lunch with mineral water, and the services of a guide.

To start the day, you will meet your guide at the El Nido Port in Barangay Buena Suerte. You will then board a boat and head to the first destination of the day, Secret Beach. As you enter through the keyhole-like entrance, you will be greeted by stunning limestone cliffs and crystal-clear waters. Enjoy lounging and swimming before heading to your next destination.

Hidden Beach, a secluded tropical paradise, is the common stopover for lunch within the area. With its aquamarine waters and towering limestone cliffs, swimming and taking pictures are highly recommended fun activities to do here.

From there, you will then travel to Star Beach. Boasting turquoise waters, this area is famous for its rich biodiversity and has become a usual destination for snorkeling. Wear your snorkeling gear again as you explore the cool waters and take a peek at the marine life teeming underwater.

With crystal clear waters, beautiful white sand, and enchanting scenic views, Tapiutan Strait is your next destination. Unwind and relax before heading to your last destination, Helicopter Island.

Also known as Dilumacad Island, Helicopter Island got its name from its shape, as it looks like a big helicopter. The island has gorgeous towering cliffs and azure waters, and it is highly recommended to take a dip and enjoy the unspoiled beach before heading back to the port.
