  • Highlights
  • Miniloc Island is one of the most popular islands in Bacuit Bay, El Nido. The main attractions are the Big Lagoon, the Small Lagoon and the Secret Lagoon, three of the most photographed sights in all of Palawan. The Small Lagoon is part of the El Nido Tour D.
    The Big Lagoon, one of the most famous and photographed sites in Bacuit Bay, offers a stunning backdrop with the tropical forest in the background and a crystal clear lagoon surrounded by limestone cliffs.
    It is called Secret Lagoon because at high tide the entrance to the lagoon is hidden. At low tide, you can swim through a tiny crack in the rock wall to get in. You will be rewarded with a beautiful lagoon with emerald green water surrounded by high limestone walls.
    7 Commandos Beach has a beautiful white beach with very fine sand and crystal clear water, ideal for swimming and snorkelling. There is a small beach bar that serves cocktails, beer and fresh juices and has a pleasant atmosphere. It is definitely one of the must-see beaches in El Nido.
    Shimizu Island is great for snorkelling and is home to a large number of colourful fish. The island has a beautiful stretch of beach with crystal clear water and white sand.
