What To Expect

A day in El Nido wouldn’t be a perfect day without an El Nido Island Hopping Tour.

Almost every island around El Nido is incredibly beautiful. Every single beach and the lagoons are a natural wonder. Swim and snorkel in the crystal clear turquoise waters and discover unique lagoons with their diverse marine life.

There are too many beautiful islands around El Nido and it is impossible to see all of them in one day.

On this exciting El Nido Island Hopping Tour, you will discover the Big and the Small Lagoon, the Secret Lagoon and visit the 7 Commandos Beach as well as Shimizu Island.

Small Lagoon – The small lagoon is surrounded by impressive rock formations. To reach the small lagoon, you have to swim or take a kayak to get through a hole in the rock wall before you can visit the small lagoon with its crystal clear azure blue water.

Big Lagoon – The Big Lagoon is located near the Small Lagoon and is easier to reach by boat than the Small Lagoon. The Big Lagoon is a paradise for anyone who loves the underwater world. There are many small and large colorful fish, who want to be discovered. Jump into the water and enjoy the diverse marine life in the Big Lagoon of El Nido.

Secret Lagoon – The Secret Lagoon is surrounded by a breath-taking scenery with its impressive rock formations. The access to the Secret Lagoon is a bit tricky. You have to swim and crawl through a small hole in the rock face. There is no other access, but you will be amazed once you make it. You will find a wonderful hidden beach surrounded by large limestone cliffs with crystal clear water. You will hold your breath as soon as you discover this amazingly beautiful place on earth.

Simizu Island (or Shimizu Island) – Shimuzu Island is a fantastic island. The white sandy beach, the limestone cliffs and rock formations are waiting for you to be discovered. Watch out for the bird´s nests. The cliffs of Shimuzu Island are known throughout Asia for their bird´s nests, which are used as ingredients for the famous Bird’s Eye Soup. It is believed that bird´s nests have healing powers. At this heavenly place a picnic is planned at the beach.

Seven Commandos Beach – The Seven Commandos Beach will be the last destination on this exciting tour. The long white sandy beach and clear blue water invites you to swim and relax. A small Beach Bar will serve you cocktails, beer and fresh juices, where you can learn more about why this beach is called Seven Commandos Beach.

In the afternoon and after a perfect day spent with island hopping, crystal clear water, beautiful marine life and fantastic limestone cliffs, you will head back to El Nido.

It was a nice and relaxing trip with fantastic views. Food was tasty. However there are more boats than expected, so that you have to wait while other people enter/exit a lagoon.
