Discover the unspoiled El Nido, Palawan islands and beaches in this shared El Nido island-hopping tour C. This excursion is perfect for travelers who want to explore lesser-known but quality attractions in El Nido. This tour includes hotel pick-up, roundtrip boat transfers, entrance fees to all destinations except Matinloc Shrine, a complimentary packed lunch, and the services of a guide. You may also upgrade this shared tour to a private one.

To start the day, you will be picked up by your guide at El Nido town proper. You will then board a boat and head to the first destination of the day, Secret Beach. At the entrance, which resembles a keyhole, you will see beautiful limestone cliffs and waters that are impossibly clean. Prior to traveling to your next location, take advantage of the surroundings by relaxing and swimming. 

Hidden Beach is a remote tropical paradise. Swimming and taking pictures are two of the best things to do here because of the clear seas and soaring limestone cliffs.

From there, you will travel to Matinloc Shrine. This revered site is positioned atop Matinloc Island and offers a bird's-eye view of the surrounding islands and clear waters. A figure of the Virgin Mary is located in the center of the shrine, which has 12 pillars. History buffs can discover more about the region's past at the island's small museum.

Your next stop is Tapiutan Island, which offers stunning white sand, clean waters, and picturesque views. Before traveling to your final stop, Helicopter Island, take some time to unwind and relax.

Helicopter Island, also called Dilumacad Island, earned its name from the way its shape resembles a helicopter. Before returning to the port, swim and enjoy the undeveloped beach, the stunning towering cliffs, and azure waters.

Discover some of the hidden beaches and islands in El Nido with this tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.
