Tours

Lagoons & Beaches Tour
The Lagoons and Beaches tour will take you to view, awe inspiring rock formations and lagoons, which can only be found in Bacuit Bay;
• Secret Lagoon is located in a small island, surrounded by limestone karst cliffs. Entrance to the lagoon is through a small gap in the limestone. Once inside, you will view a massive caldera, which was once a cave, until the roof collapse, creating a lagoon.
• Shimizu Island is an island with stunning limestone cliffs which provide nesting ledges for Swiftlet’s. Here the Tour Guides will prepare a sumptuous meal for you whilst you relax or snorkel in the nearby coral reef.
• Small Lagoon is located on Miniloc Island. Entrance to the lagoon is through a narrow gap, through which you can either swim or kayak. Once inside you witness tranquil, turquoise-green waters and a kaleidoscope of marine life, surrounded by orchid-lined limestone walls.
• Big Lagoon is surrounded by karst limestone formations and its crystal clear waters are a breeding ground for fish and crustaceans.
• Seven Commandos Beach is the final destination of this tour, and is named after 7 Japanese Commandos who remained on the island after World War II. This beautiful island has a long white sandy beach lined with palms trees.

Hidden Beaches & Shrines
• Dilumacad (Helicopter) Island - This island has a beautiful, 300 metre, white sand beach, which is ideal for picnic lunches during island-hopping trips. There is also an underwater tunnel at the northern end and a fringing reef at the southern end of the island. This island is also known as Helicopter Island because, when viewed from a distance, its limestone cliffs resemble a helicopter.
• Matinloc Island is the longest, slim island in El Nido and has a secret beach. This beach is inaccessible by boat as it’s surrounded by steep rock walls, and can be reached by swimming underwater through a narrow crevice in the rock wall. From mid-day the sun streams through the opening, resulting in a beautiful display of light and shadow against the limestone walls. It is believed that it is this beach, which inspired Alex Garland's novel The Beach, written whilst he was living in El Nido.
The island is also famous for the Kulasa Beach, a 100-meter beach strip of fine white sand located in a cove. This location is one of the best snorkelling spots in Bacuit Bay due to the abundance of marine life in this area.
• Star Beach is another, perfect snorkelling spot and it is here where your guides will prepare a sumptuous lunch by the beach, whilst you lose yourself in the beauty of the nearby coral reefs.
• Matinloc Island boasts of two spectacular snorkelling areas; Kalmung Point and Kulasa Beach. Mantinloc Shrine is hidden within a lush, forested island. Also known as Shrine of Our Lady of Matinloc or Shrine of the Blessed Virgin, this shrine was built in 1982 to honour the Virgin Mary. Matinloc is the local term for "beautiful" .

 Inland Beaches & Waterfalls
The third in our series of El Nido Islands and Beaches Tours, and we have saved the best beaches for last. This final tour includes visits to Nacpan and Calitang beach, located 25 kilometers north of El Nido town, and a trek to El Nido's Makinit Hotsprings and Nagkalit-Kalit Falls.
• Nacpan and Calitang Beaches, which share the same shore line and are an hour from El Nido, are rarely visited by tourists giving you a wonderful opportunity to bask in your own piece of paradise. A fishing village and a large Resthouse are the only structures to be found on these pristine beaches.
• The Nagkalit-kalit Falls is a frequent destination for adventure trekkers, as it requires a thirty to forty-five minute trek in order to reach the falls. Located deep in the forest , accessed by jeep and on foot through the lush jungle, there are magical waterfalls and jungle pools amidst cascading falls.
