Explore four breathtaking shores in El Nido, Palawan through this shared El Nido island-hopping tour C. This is a perfect adventure for travelers who want to maximize their time in the province as it will only last for six hours, giving you the rest of the day to see more sights. The package also comes with boat transfers and the service of a guide. You also have the option to upgrade this trip to a private tour, so you can fully enjoy the adventure at your leisure. You may also book packed lunch as an add-on.

Before setting sail, you will have to meet your guide at the floating dock by the town proper. You will then board your designated boat and make your way to the first stop of the day, Hidden Beach. As its name suggests, this stretch of white sand is not easily spotted from afar as karst cliffs border it. The space between the limestone cliffs is also too small for boats to pass through.

You will either have to rent a kayak from your boat or swim there. When you finally reach this not-so-secret hideaway, you will find a pristine white-sand beach and clear waters. After your time here, you will head to Matinloc Island. Perched atop this isle is a religious shrine where you can get an unobstructed view of El Nido. 

Next, you will travel to Secret Beach. Similar to Hidden Beach, boats can't dock here as karst cliffs border this hideaway. The only way of getting to the shore is by swimming through an opening underneath the cliffs. 

Your last stop of the day will be on an island that resembles a helicopter from afar and is aptly named Helicopter Island. Plunge into the waters here, as this is known as one of the best spots to snorkel in El Nido. Prepare to see vibrant colors as you observe the rich marine life that lives under the surface. 

Swim in the pristine waters of El Nido while visiting different islands by booking this El Nido island hopping tour C. Check the availability by choosing a date.
