TOUR A ITINERARY
You will be picked up from your accommodation in either El Nido Town Proper or Corong Corong at around 8 am. From here, you will journey to the harbour to board the boat which will be transporting you around the Bacuit archipelago.
On tour A you will visit four main locations:
Big or Small Lagoon
One of the most beautiful lagoons in the whole of the Bacuit archipelago. Here you can rent a kayak (additional 200 pesos) or swim in the crystal clear waters and take in the rich marine life.
Make your way through a small rock opening to reach this paradise and bask in the perfection of this lagoon. One of the prettiest lagoons you are sure to come across, this is an Instagrammer’s dream! There will also be the opportunity to snorkel in an area close to the secret lagoon.
Another idyllic beach to enjoy. This is where lunch will be served and you can fill your stomach watching the lazy sea lap at the sand.
Seven Commandos Beach
Boasting incredibly soft, white sand, Seven Commandos Beach is the ultimate final stop on this unforgettable El Nido Island Hopping tour! There is even a small bar where you can grab a coconut – this has got to be heaven right?!
A picnic style lunch will be provided during the tour. You will arrive back at the pick-up point at around 4 pm.
TOUR B ITINERARY
You will be picked up from your accommodation in El Nido Town Proper or the Corong Corong area between 8.15 am and 8.45 am. After picking up the other travellers in the group, you’ll be taken to the boat which will take you island hopping.
Tour B includes a visit to the following islands:
One of the most unique of the islands in the Bacuit archipelago, snake island is most well-known for its long sand bar which stretches right out into the ocean. Sounds dreamy, right?
This limestone island is typical of everything beautiful about El Nido with a picturesque beach, towering coconut trees and incredible snorkelling opportunities. Pinagbuyutan Island really is the ideal paradise escape.
Boasting some dramatic rock formations, this cave is a great way to break up your day and explore something other than the Philippines fabulous beaches. You have the option to kayak inside or swim.
This beautiful island is surrounded by crystal clear waters which make for an excellent snorkelling spot. What marine life will you spot there?
Entering this cave is pretty exciting in itself and you will need to slip between a gap in the cliff to gain access. As well as having important historical significance (your guide will tell you a bit of the background), the cave is also a great spot to put on your snorkel!
Lunch will be provided in the afternoon and you will return to El Nido Town Proper at around 4 pm.
TOUR C ITINERARY
Be prepared for pick-up around 8 am from your accommodation in the Corong Corong area or El Nido Town Proper. After the group have been picked up, you will all be transported to the harbour. This is where you will board the boat which will be taking you island hopping.
On tour C you will visit the following places:
Said to resemble (yeah, you guessed it!) a helicopter, this island is one of the most famous throughout the archipelago. Helicopter Island is another of the Philippines best beaches, showcasing dazzling white sand and colourful coral.
Climb up to the viewpoint for some incredible views of the Matinloc and surrounding islands. There is also a shrine with huge religious importance here nestled among the abandoned former convent and school. It is a little eerie but it is also a great place to explore!
Accessed only via swimming, the secret beach is a paradise for avid snorkelers! The water here is shockingly clear and there are plenty of opportunities to spot the brightly coloured fish that live below the water.
As theme might indicate, this is a great area in which to see starfish! A relaxing and peaceful beach, Star Beach is one place you might never want to leave!
To get to this beautiful beach you must wade through a little limestone cave. It is only after passing through this, that you will be able to see the Hidden Beach.
During the tour, you will be given a picnic style lunch. You can expect to return back to the pick-up point around 4 pm.
