Put on your swimsuit and enjoy the breathtaking lagoons and pristine beaches in this island hopping tour in El Nido. This private day trip is for anyone who wants to experience all the best that one of the finest island destinations in the world can offer.

After being picked up from your accommodation in El Nido town, you will head to the port to meet your tour guide who will give you a briefing. Afterward, you will board a boat and make your way to your first stop.

You will cruise through the clear waters of Palawan to the entrance of the Secret Lagoon. This body of water is considered as El Nido’s crown jewels. The limestone cliffs towering over the sparkling turquoise waters is definitely a sight to behold. Swim, take pictures, and absorb the beauty of the lagoons before heading to your next destination,  the Seven Commandos Beach.

Named after seven Japanese soldiers who lived on the island after World War II, the historic Seven Commandos has a long stretch of fine white sand perfect for lounging around, beach bumming, or picture taking. There are tall coconut trees on the island, too, if you want some shade.

From there, you will head to your last destination for this trip, Shimizu Island. With its white sand beach and imposing rock formations that provide good shade, the island is the most common stop for lunch. Dig your toes in the sand while enjoying your picnic of local grilled specialties and seafood. You can choose what to do here; while swimming is always a good idea, you can also walk along the beach or plainly lounge within the area.

Often referred to as the "Philippines' Last Frontier," El Nido consistently ranks in travel magazines and online media lists as one of the most beautiful islands in the world. It is composed of 45 islands and islets scattered on the coast of the Bacuit archipelago in the westernmost province of the Philippines.
