These two are definitely a must visit in El Nido. The clear turquoise blue waters, the majestic rock formations, and the vibrant marine life are just some of the reasons why these attractions are prominently featured in postcards, magazine, and websites. Kayak through the lagoon and bask in the beauty of nature or enjoy a swim with the fish. Just remember to not step on any of the corals. These are part of the El Nido boat tour A.
These long stretches of white sand beach can be seen by climbing up the viewpoint. The untouched atmosphere makes it a great place to just swim and chill out with some food and beer. Unlike the other attractions, it is less crowded here. The beaches can be reached via motorbike or tricycle.
Another beautiful island in the Bacuit archipelago, Matinloc is known for the stunning panoramic views you can view from the top of its limestone formations. Because of the diversity of corals and other marine life in this area, its a great place to try swimming and snorkeling. Matinloc island is part of El Nido boat tour C.
Part of tour B, this S-shaped sandbar appears during low tide and cuts across Bacuit Bay. You can actually walk from this island to the main island through the sandbar. You’ll be able to spot some starfish across the sand so be sure to take some photos but do not disturb them.
If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, try going to hidden beach. To get here, you have to swim through a small crevice in the rock formations. But once you make it across, you’ll get to swim in your own little paradise hidden by limestone rocks. You can get here via boat tour C but if you book a private tour, you’ll be able to have the whole place to yourselves.
