Discover El Nido, Palawan's white sandy coastlines along picture-perfect limestone cliffs on this whole day island-hopping adventure. You will visit five island locations - Secret Beach, Hidden Beach, Matinloc Shrine, Tapiutan Island, and Helicopter Island, all within the space of 7 hours. The tour also includes lunch and transport service with pick-up and drop-off points located within the El Nido town area.
Your first stop is the Secret Beach. Located in Matinloc island, it is approximately 40 km away from the El Nido town proper and is so named because of its obscure location. Accessible through a cavern-like hole, you need to swim through a narrow opening to reach this tiny piece of tropical paradise, revealing clear waters and white sand against towering cliffs. Next, you will need to squeeze through another keyhole-like opening to reach the Hidden Beach, where a mesmerizing lagoon is revealed within.
Looking at beautiful sites will leave you hungry, so it’s time for lunch at Matinloc Shrine. On this site you’ll find a few abandoned buildings that used to house a convent and school, lending it an old-world charm in the midst of the lush forest. Further out in Bacuit Bay, you will head over to Tapiutan Island, known as the most remote island in El Nido. Facing the West Philippine Sea, this island is a good spot for snorkeling and enjoying the rich marine life beneath its blue waters. Finally, you’ll reach the end of your tour with a visit to Helicopter Island, where breathtaking karst formations towering against powdery sands will bid you farewell.
Besides the packed lunch and transfers, the package also includes life vests and staff assistance during this island hopping tour in El Nido. Check availability by choosing a date.
