El Nido Secret Beach Island Hopping Private Tour with Lunch | Matinloc Shrine & Helicopter Island
Discover some of the beautiful natural attractions of El Nido when you book this island hopping tour that comes with tour guide assistance, use of an air-conditioned vehicle for hotel pick-up/drop-off, roundtrip boat transfers, entrance fees, and lunch. For an additional fee, you may upgrade the traditional banca to a speedboat to maximize your trip. You may also rent snorkeling gear, but make sure you inform your guide before you board your boat as the equipment needs to be picked up at El Nido town proper.
If your hotel or resort is located at El Nido town proper, Corong Corong Beach, or Marimegmeg Beach, your guide will pick you up from there on the morning of your tour. If not, you will have to meet your guide at a designated meet-up spot. Once you are with your guide, you will board a boat that will bring you to Secret Beach, your first stop for this day tour.
Like its name implies, Secret Beach is a hidden beach that can only be reached by going through a small hole in the limestone cliffs. After you emerge from the tunnel, you’ll see a small beach surrounded by limestone cliffs. Here you can swim or just chill in the sand.
After enjoying Secret Beach, you’ll head to Matinloc Shrine next. Located in Matinloc Island, the shrine is an abandoned but beautiful building. Even if you’re not religious, you’ll be able to appreciate the views and the corners of the building that are the perfect backdrop for your travel photos.
Your last stop on this trip is Helicopter Island. It was named so because, from one angle, the whole island looks like a huge helicopter. Here you can swim in the clear waters, relax in the sand, or just take in the beautiful views. Once you are done, your boat will head back to the mainland, and you will be brought back to your hotel or the meeting point.
