Reviewed June 10, 2013

What more could you ask for at the end of a long day island hoping.. Sipping on cocktails watching the sunset reminiscing about the day

“Perfect End to the Day”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Our island hopping tour ended here. I love how calm the water was and it was lukewarm too which is what I want. They had fresh buko juice in the island for P50 and other drinks (softdrinks for P50 and beer for P60).

We stayed here for an hour or so which was a perfect end to our island hopping trip. Snorkeling can be done in the middle portion of the beach but all we did was swim around our pump boat.

“Beautiful despite the crowds”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

I enjoyed the one hour we spent at seven commandos. The beach is a long stretch of white sand, with lots of colourful boats bobbing along the shore. It was filled with loads of tourists, but thankfully did not feel crowded.

There is a nice (and terribly expensive) shack selling soft drinks, cocktails and canned juices (unfortunately no shakes). Do try the CR - it is an uphill climb and very primitive, but probably has the best views that a CR can ever have ! he he!

The snorkelling here was jsut okayish... nothing greator fanciful (in fact it was bad, to be honest), but on the whole, this beach reminds you of a touristy beach of Thailand or Mediterranean..

I liked the buko (tender coconut) juice which was being sold at a small stall near the volleyball court - it was priced sensibly and was tasty.

A tip : Bring sufficient money when you come, in small (50 and 100 peso) bills, as the shops often do not have change.

You can read my frank and honest account of our El Nido trip (with dozens of photos) here - http://goo.gl/6HyXU

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Another one of the uniquely beautiful islands in Bacuit Bay. Good snorkelling and diving spots just a few meters off the beach, Great for relaxing on the beach and for a good swim.

“Sunset tour with Islanen”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

The friendly crew of Islanen Outdoor Tours accommodated my group's request for a sunset tour at Seven Commando Beach. We were able to swim on the lukewarm water and the views were made awesome by the the orangy colours of the sun as it sets. We forgot to bring champagne and toast the setting sun but we will do it next time we come back for another visit!
