Dilumacad Island, better known as Helicopter Island, was our first stop of tour C. We anchored on the far north end and were able to enjoy relative solitude even though several other boats were anchored along the beach. The beach was beautiful white sand and the corals were some of the better ones we saw during our visit in El... More

Our stop here was short but sweet. It was our last stop for Tour C, and it was more to just appreciate the beach and the fine white sand. You can just relax here and admire the waves, the sea, and the cliffs. There were a lot of people in the island, but the view can still be very relaxing... More

This was our last stop in tour C and we snorkeled and saw a Turtle. Very nice corals too. The beach is just great, wide and the view from here is incredible.

This has gotta be one of the most gorgeous beach of El Nido! The turquoise water makes you feel that you are definitely in a paradise! Also called 'Helicopter Island' due to its form. The rights has been purchased by Ayala and it will soon by privatized and won't be included in the tour of island hopping as what our... More

A good spot for snorkeling and diving. The water was clear, the beach was clean, perfect to lie down and read a book. This place was a bit crowded with snorkelers sometimes. We enjoyed snorkeling here, swim further near its 'tail' to get a better view of corals and sea creatures. Just don't go pass the buoy divider for safety... More

Helicopter Island is a beautiful island with fine white sand and clear blue waters, a perfect place for a picnic lunch! Good place for snorkeling too, to spot a variety of colorful fish and corals.

We had a private tour and the first stop is this island. Almost lunchtime so had lunch here. We have the island for ourselves. Not a soul on the beach, except for us three and our three boatmen. The place also for snorkeling. The water is so clear. A good place also for swimming.

The island is BEAUTIFUL, dubbed as 'helicopter island' because of its shape that looks like a flying machine it’s named after. We walked the beach and the colors were just right that day for a good photo. There was even a tree with leaves of gold, reds and oranges, Made me think of autumn leaves :-) More details of the...
