All about the El Nido Combo Tour C & B.

Island-hopping is the best way to explore some of the islands scattered in Bacuit Bay, El Nido. El Nido Tour B & C combo will take you to explore some of the most beautiful islands and beaches of Bacuit Bay in one day.

With this combo tour, you will visit the following islands and beaches: Matinloc Island, Secret Beach, Hidden Beach Helicopter Island and Tapiutan Island (Tour C) & Pangulasian Island, Pinagbuyutan Island, Snake Island, Cudugnon and Cathedral Caves (Tour B).

Matinloc Island is known for the excellent snorkelling spots, some good beaches and a mysterious Shrine. The Shrine is reachable by climbing the steps of an abandoned building. The place offers a beautiful panoramic view.

The tiny Secret Beach in Mantiloc Island can only be entered by swimming through a keyhole slot in the rock wall of the island. Alex Garland, the author of the novel-turned-film The Beach actually lived and wrote his bestselling novel in El Nido, most likely inspired by the Secret Beach.

The Hidden Beach in Mantiloc Island is a small paradisiac cove concealed by limestone rock and impossible to see it from the open sea.

Tapiutan Island is further out the Bacuit Bay. It’s a serene island with pristine sandy beaches and good snorkeling spots.

Dilumacad Island, also known as “Helicopter Island” due to its helicopter-like shape. The inhabited island boasts towering cliffs, tropical lush vegetation, white sandy beach and great snorkeling sites.

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.
