“Amazing place!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

You need to pay some company to take you there by boat. But it really worthwhile each PHP payed. The place is magic, beautiful. Actually, there is more than one secret lagoon in El Nido, Philippines. And all them are amazing!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

It was quite a challenge getting into the Secret Lagoon but well worth it. This was definitely a must see experience while in El Nido.

“super cool !”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

we felt like a true explorer to swim through strong wave to approach this small keyhole opening and discover a small beach area inside. Super cool! but not for the squeamish though.

“A Paradise Indeed!”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Secret Lagoon is absolutely one of the best beaches I have ever been to. And the fact that you have to swim under the rocks to get to the beach makes it even more amazing. El Nido is truly a paradise indeed!

“Overrated”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We visited after a low pressure area tore through. Getting into the lagoon was too much of an adventure. The beach wasnt anything you'd visit twice. The waves would smash you off your feet onto the corals. I even saw one guy with band-aides all over him. In addition to the painstaking struggle you would have to get through the lagoon's very tiny entrance, the qeaue was downright long considering it wasnt peak season. In the lagoon, you'll see nothing but a brook-like water that's murky-tobleroney brown. Again it may be due to the low pressure area, or may be from the many guests who were standing in the water taking pictures. I would recommend that more time is spent at the small or big lagoon. They are WAY BETTER.
