This was our first stop. It's basically a sandbar connected to a small island where you can hike. The hike takes about 10 minutes. When on top, you can see the entire sandbar shaped like a snake, hence the name. The views when on the sandbar and when on top of the small island are breathtaking. Other El Nido attractions such as the big and small lagoons were better, but Snake Island is also a must-visit place of El Nido.

A bit of a hike but the view was tremendous, great perspective of everything around and makes you realize how close you actually are to the mainland but yet it feels like you on are in a different reality.

view from the top was great! make sure to go when it is low tide so you can clearly sea the sand bar.

The place is nice but I guess the beauty of the shape of snake can be better admired by air. Anyway, it's a good place to see and there are lot of fisherman in the village nearby :) (interesting to see them work)
Dont forget your shoes.

i was not really able to appreciate the beauty of it though no questions it's really wonderful but i hope it was not raining and hope it was low tide so we'll really be able to walk on the island
