Island-hopping is the best way to explore some of the islands scattered in Bacuit Bay, El Nido.
If you want to see as much as possible, but have limited vacation time, you may like our Combo Tour A & B – El Nido Island Hopping which will take you to explore the most beautiful islands and beaches of Bacuit Bay in one day.
With El Nido Combo A & B Tour you will visit the following island and beaches: Big/Small Lagoon, 7 Commandos Beach, Secret Lagoon and Shimizu Island (Tour A) and Pangulasian Island, Pinagbuyutan Island, Snake Island, Cudugnon and Cathedral Caves (Tour B).
Miniloc Island is one of the most popular island of Bacuit Bay, El Nido. The main attractions of Miniloc Island are Big Lagoon, Small Lagoon and Secret Lagoon, three of the more photographed sights in all of Palawan.
The Big Lagoon boasts beautiful scenery with tropical forest as the background and crystal-clear waters.
The Small Lagoon will take you breath away. You have to swim through a hole to reach the lagoon, and the view as you enter is stunning: pristine clear waters surrounded with imposing limestone formations as backdrop.
You need to swim through a tiny crevice on the rock’s face if you want to discover the Secret Lagoon. But once inside, you ‘ll find yourself on a small pristine beach enclosed by limestone walls.
7 Commandos Beach has a beautiful white beach with very fine sand and crystal clear waters ideal for swimming and snorkelling. On 7 Commandos Island there is a little beach bar with nice chilled out vibe that serves cocktails, beer and fresh juices.
Shimizu Island is an awesome place for snorkeling, home to a large number of brightly coloured fishes.
Also known as the “Island of the Sun”, Pangulasian Island has breathtaking views of both the sunrise and sunset and it boast a 750-meter stretch of white sand beach and a vibrant marine life.
Pinagbuyutan Island has become famous after the Survivor Israel was held in this island. This dome-shaped island is dominated by high limestone cliffs with a strip of powdery white sand at its base. It’s considered one of the most scenic islands in Bacuit Bay, El Nido.
Snake Island is a tiny sandbar that changes shape with every tide – most likely took its name for this reason.
It’s possible to enter inside the main chamber of Codugnon Cave by crawling in a small passage in the rock wall. Once you’re in, you can see the cave ecosystem. Thousands of years ago, Cudugnon Cave was a sacred burial site. Bats nest deep inside the cave and the smell of their guano may be very unpleasant.
The entrance of the Cathedral Cave really looks like a cathedral. Although the greenish blue water are inviting, it’s not possible to swim around here. Most of the time the waters are too rough and the cave is home to venomous sea snakes.
