“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Hidden away by cliffs, this amazingly beautiful beach is a gem of nature. Great place to swim and enjoy life but can be a bit crowded in terms of the many boats coming there with tourists. Loved all the nice beaches of El Nido and in particular this one.

“Relaxing, serene and divine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Partly obscured by rocks, Hidden Beach is tucked away in a secluded spot and boats can go in if the tide is high enough to allow for passage.

The seas were rough when we were there and we had to swim a fair distance. The views once we were safely away from the big waves was worth the swim.

“Can be crowded...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Beautiful place to take swim. Water is clear but can get too crowded. A small spot with many boats with lot of people. Had a private tour so the place was not that crowded. Makes you wish the place is Really hidden to enjoy it. Beautiful lest one formation also.

“One of those "Been there, done that"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Part of Tour D. Ok for the first time. Wouldn't make it a deal to want to go there again. Great for photo op...but that's it. Too crowded for such a small area

“magnificent beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

you will be pleasantly surprise when your boat make a turning into the lagoon and revealing the hidden beach.
The water here is one of the clearest i've seen. the only downside, for such a tiny place, there are too many tour boat.
