Come along this tour and delve into mysterious caves, secret coves, and intriguing historic sites in El Nido, the top tourist destination in Palawan. This tour is for anyone who wants to maximize their trip and see a variety of landscapes in just a day.

The tour starts when you’re picked up from your accommodation in El Nido town. Your tour guide will discuss the itinerary with you as well as the rules for responsible tourism. Make sure to wear your life vest before boarding the boat.

Your first destination is Snake Island. It gets its name from the natural S-shaped sandbar that twists off its shore, clearly visible during low tide. Enjoy the feeling of your feet being lapped up by the waves or take a dip in the shallow swimming areas on both sides. Climb a nearby hill to get a bird’s eye view of the seascape as your boat crew prepares a picnic barbecue lunch for you.

Afterward, you can walk around the historic Cudugnon Island, which anthropologists believe was once inhabited by cave dwellers from Borneo who traveled across the ancient land bridge that was once connected to Palawan. Jewelry and pottery dating back to the Sung Dynasty (960-1279) have been discovered here, making this an important archaeological site. The island also served as a hiding area for locals during World War II.

From Cudugnon, you’ll make your way to the Cathedral Cave, a site with a concealed opening leading to a spectacular rock formation that resembles a holy sanctuary. During certain times of the day, the interiors of the cavern are lit up by sunlight streaming in through a cave gap.

Cap off your day at Pinagbuyutan Island, an islet resembling a solid mass of vertical limestone cliffs with just a narrow strip of beach at its base. The island is well-known for its thriving underwater ecosystem and vibrant coral reefs.

Pack your swimsuits and make sure to fully charge your cameras before your trip so you can capture all the amazing seascapes in this idyllic paradise. Check availability by choosing a date above.
