Part 2: Island Hopping in El Nido, Palawan

Though we we’re very tired on the first day, we were still very energetic and excited to explore the other islands in El Nido. It was quite rainy but the rain failed to stop us from enjoying the day!

Day 2 (Tour A)

Secret Lagoon

Secret Lagoon is accessible only via a small rock hole. The place is just small and even if it’s shallow near the entrance, some parts of it are deep so be careful.

Shimizu Island


Shimizu Island was named after a Japanese diver who died there. It was our stop for lunch.

Although corals here are not as good as the corals in Helicopter Island, it’s still a really amazing place for snorkeling.

Big Lagoon

We had to walk a very long hike since our boat couldn’t get in because it was low tide. It was tiring yet fun.

Small Lagoon

This is my favorite destination in Tour A. It is accessed via a small entrance and kayaks can be rented for 300 Pesos.

The place is so quiet and relaxing while the water is so clear and pure. I wish we had more time to stay here.

Seven Commandos

Seven Commandos is the last stop. The island is developed and it has rooms for rent and bars. It’s the perfect place to relax after a tiring island hopping.

    It also rained when I visited El Nido about 4 years ago. It got difficult to get out of the Secret Lagoon because the current was giving us a hard time, thankfully our tour guide and boat man was strong enough to assist us. 🙂
