Adventure Begins...

One of the activities in El Nido is the Island Hopping. This will give you the chance to experience the “Philippines Last Frontier”. El Nido boasts numerous white sand islands, magnificent lagoons and caves, hidden beach, protected coral reefs, and simply countless amazing views. The tour is composed of 4 parts, A, B, C, and D. Each will consume a whole day of your time. You can also combine A or B for example, but there will be some areas that can’t be visited due to lack of time.

Here are the most common itinerary tour. Other set may differ depends on the boatman or deal. Usually, lunch is free or included in the package. Price usually cost 600-800 or more (depends on bangkeros). We got ours for only 4k (private tour composed of 3 persons) for set A B C.

Tour A

– Small lagoon
– Big lagoon
– Simizu island
– Payong payong
– 7 Commando island

Tour B

– Pangalusian island
– Snake Island
– Codugnon Cave
– Cathedral Cave
– Pinagbuyutan Island

Tour C

– Secret Beach
– Hidden Beach
– Star Beach
– Matinloc Shrine

Tour D

4-5 White Beaches

What can I say? try to visit all of the tour packages. You can never go wrong with any island. If you ask me for just one tour, it’s hard to choose really. They are all worth visiting. As a photographer, I can’t imagine myself not visiting Big Lagoon (Tour A), Snake Island (Tour B), and Matinloc Shrine (Tour C). Those are my top 3… it’s so happened that each belongs to different package.
