Join this island hopping tour that will take you to El Nido’s finest beaches and caves. This private tour is perfect for travelers who have a penchant for natural, rugged wonders and serene, unspoiled beaches. This tour includes roundtrip licensed boat transfers, entrance fees to all destinations, buffet lunch with mineral water, and services of a guide. 

You will meet up with your guide in the morning at the El Nido Port in Brgy. Buena Suerte. Once there, your guide will discuss the day’s itinerary, starting with your first destination of the day — Popolkan Island. It has a beautiful stretch of white sand and azure waters, perfect for snorkeling. In here, swim and snorkel to your heart’s content. 

Next, you will head to Cudugnon Cave. This unique cultural landmark is believed to be a Neolithic burial place for the people from Borneo. You can see the various artifacts inside the cave, such as human bones, potteries, and jewelry pieces, to name a few. Aside from the artifacts, its exquisite stalactites and stalagmites will also leave you standing in awe.

From there, you will then make your way to Cathedral Cave. Distinct for its tapered high-ceiling entrance and pitch-dark depths, the cave is one of El Nido’s mysterious marvels. The extraordinary rock formation of the cave is an ideal backdrop for photo ops.

Next, you will pay a visit to Snake Island, one of the most sought-out El Nido destinations. It has been named as such because of the shape of the sandbar resembling the creature. Take out your camera and snap a shot of this postcard-worthy destination before heading to your next stop.

Your last stop will be at Pinagbuyutan Island, also called Inabuyatan Island. The island features towering limestone cliffs that make it picturesque when taken from any angle. On top of that, the site also has a rich aquatic ecosystem perfect for snorkeling.

While in here, put on your mask and snorkel around to see the vibrant marine life. Take a dip in the unspoiled beach or walk along the powdery white sand before preparing to head back to the port.
