Discover El Nido, Palawan's hidden beaches and paradise-like islands by joining this private island hopping tour C. This package includes a delicious lunch of local dishes, and transport services with drop off and pick up points located in El Nido town, and a tour guide. You will visit top tourist spots in El Nido, such as Secret Beach, Hidden Beach, Matinloc Shrine, Tapiutan Island, and Helicopter Island.
The private tour begins with a boat ride to Matinloc Island, where the aptly named Secret Beach is hidden from view. To find it, you’ll need to swim through a narrow opening barely visible beneath the towering limestone cliffs. Once you manage to wiggle your way through, you’ll find a white sandy beach dwarfed by the same cliffs that conceal it outside.
After that, get ready to squeeze through another narrow opening at the next stop on your itinerary, Hidden Beach, which is only accessible through a keyhole-like opening set against an imposing wall of karst formations. Inside, the clear waters and pristine white sand set against a backdrop more gleaming cliffs is a sight to behold.
Your next stop is Matinloc Shrine, which is also where lunch will be served. It is an island with a lush forest and features an unexpected sight: a Catholic shrine and abandoned buildings that are said to have been used either as a convent or school.
The next destination in your island hopping itinerary is Tapiutan Island. Located on an area facing the West Philippine Sea, it is said to be El Nido’s most remote island. After this, your outrigger will dock at Helicopter Island, famous for its breathtaking limestone cliffs and powdery sands set against the clear blue sea by the shore.
