Island-hopping is the best way to explore some of the islands scattered in Bacuit Bay, El Nido.
El Nido is surrounded by many beautiful islands and beached and each one of them has something different to offer. El Nido Tour C features Matinloc Island, Secret Beach, Hidden Beach Helicopter Island and Tapiutan Island.
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.
