Sail to some of the best spots in El Nido, Palawan, through this shared El Nido island-hopping tour. This is the perfect experience for travelers who want to swim in the famous Big Lagoon, as it is the highlight of this El Nido island hopping tour A itinerary. This package is already inclusive of boat transfers and the service of a guide. You may also book an add-on packed lunch or upgrade your tour to a private trip for an additional fee. 

On the day of your El Nido island hopping, you will meet your guide at the floating dock near the town proper's port area. Make sure to be there at least 20 minutes before your chosen departure time to avoid any delays. From there, you will hop in the boat and head to the Big Lagoon. This natural pool is surrounded by towering karst cliffs that help protect it from harsh winds and keep the water calm. Take a plunge in its crystal clear waters as you enjoy the lagoon's peaceful ambiance. 

After your El Nido Big Lagoon tour, you will set course for Shimizu Island. You will find powdery white sand here and azure waters teeming with colorful marine life. If you want to get a closer look at the animals that call the nearby waters home, remember to bring snorkeling gear as well.

Next, you will go to the Secret Lagoon. This natural pool is nestled along Miniloc Island's coast. It can only be reached via a small opening between the limestone cliffs surrounding it, hence its name. After making your way through the opening, you will be greeted by a majestic lagoon bordered by powdery white sand. When you're done wading through the waters and taking photos in this beautiful hideaway, head back to the boat so you can continue your tour. 

You will then end your tour with a visit to the Seven Commandos Beach, a stunning shore that goes on for 320 meters. Aside from the open space perfect for beach activities like volleyball, the island is also among the most picturesque destinations in the country, thanks to the limestones and palm trees that make for a perfect backdrop. 

Explore the beautiful islands of El Nido by booking this shared island-hopping tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.
