Visit some of El Nido’s top natural attractions including beaches, caves, and sandbars with this shared island-hopping speedboat tour B. 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. This tour can also be upgraded to a private tour. You may also purchase packed lunch as an add-on.

Meet up with your guide in front of Marygold Beach Resort at least 20 minutes before your scheduled tour. They will assist you in boarding the shared speedboat that will take you around El Nido for your tour. If you upgrade to a private tour, you will be boarding a private speedboat with your group instead.

Your first stop is Snake Island. Don’t worry about the name of the island, as it is just named after the snake-like shape of its sandbar. Walking along this sandbar will give you gorgeous views of the island and its surroundings. After your visit here, you’ll head to two caves: Cudognon Cave and Cathedral Cave.

Cudognon Cave is located at the foot of Mount Maateg and is home to rock and limestone formations. The cave served as a burial site for ancient people in Palawan. Here, archeologists found artifacts and human bones dating back to 960 AD. On the other hand, you’ll find turquoise waters and limestone walls in Cathedral Cave. Its waters may seem inviting, but swimming is not advisable as you might encounter venomous sea snakes. 

You’ll next visit Popolcan Island, which is known for its tall limestone cliffs, and then a nearby sandbar before heading to your last stop, Pinagbuyutan Island. The island is also known for its limestone cliffs, but it is also home to white-sand beaches, coconut trees, and emerald waters where you can swim and snorkel.

After your shared tour, you will be brought back to the mainland so you can enjoy the rest of your stay in El Nido.
