Great place for snorkeling

One of the coral reefs where we really enjoyed snorkeling. Safe and nestled in a cove. We swam from end to end. Got to see a turtle, squid, clams and a large variety of fish.

You eat lunch here at this stop on Tour A. The snorkeling is not so great but the scenery is perfect in every sense of the word. I love exploring these little stops because you can always find some cave, or cliff that will blow your mind away.

This site was very beautiful 5 years ago, but the coral is totally dead in the shallow area between the rock island and the beach, and the only good spot is limited to the drop off at the end of the strait away from Miniloc. I think this was overused by day trippers or there was some other reason for... More

very relaxing place, we stayed in this island to have our lunch. While our tour guides busy preparing our lunch, we took photos of the amazing views around.

Most tour (Tour C) will stop by at this island for Lunch. This will be filled with lots of people during noon and it's a fun place to meet other people. The island has beautiful corals and fishes so you may want to snorkel while waiting for lunch or just sun bathe to tan.

There are so many big rocks that it is difficult to snorkel. I hit my big toe on one of the rocks and it really hurt a lot. It was bleeding when I came out of the water. The place is beautify though and I think kayaking is a better option here.

I must say this one's the highlight of Tour A. I just love how great the view is above and below water. Picture perfect! Corals. fish, and everything under water is stunning. Snorkeling is a must try here. Water is so deep but you can't help but fall in love with the calmness and beauty of the place.

One of the best places to kayak in El Nido. The huge space and awesome view will invigorate you to paddle and explore. The space in between islands that lead to South China Sea has a cool strong breeze that will make you feel like your looking at the venue where Madara and Hashirama battled in Naruto :D
