Swim in some of El Nido's most serene beaches and lagoons through this shared island-hopping tour D adventure. This El Nido island-hopping tour will take you to the famous Small Lagoon and more, making it a perfect experience for those who love to swim in tropical waters. It also includes shared boat transfers and the service of a guide. This tour can also be upgraded to a private tour. You also have the option to book packed lunch as an add-on.

You will meet your guide at the floating dock in front of Marygold Beach Resort on the day of your tour. Then, you will hop in the designated shared boat for the day and set sail after everyone has settled in. If you upgrade to a private tour, you will have your own private boat en route to the various tourist attractions. 

Your first destination is Small Lagoon, one of the top attractions in El Nido. This natural pool is smaller in size compared to Big Lagoon, hence its name. Despite its size, it is considered among the best spots to swim and kayak as its crystal waters are usually calm. 

After your time here, you will travel to Paradise Beach, a stunning stretch of white sand that is lined with lush forests and karst cliffs. While the surrounding waters are also ideal for a refreshing swim, this spot is considered an excellent sunbathing area as well. Relax on the smooth sand and listen to the waves lapping the shore as you soak up some sun. 

From there, you will hop back into the shared boat and go to Cadlao Lagoon. This quiet spot boasts turquoise waters protected by towering limestone cliffs and is an ideal place for swimming and snorkeling. Take the time to explore and discover what vibrant aquatic animals live here before preparing to sail to your next stop. 

Your tour will wrap up with a visit to Pasandigan Beach. Travelers who wish to get away from large crowds will feel at ease here as this secluded shore offers a bit more privacy and unspoiled waters. Feel free to swim in the sea and lounge on the powdery beach before heading back to the dock. 

Immerse in the stunning outdoors of El Nido by booking this shared island-hopping tour D. Check the availability by choosing a date.
