What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Hidden Beach, Matinloc Island, El Nido, Palawan Island Philippines

Hidden Beach is one of the places you’ll visit when you book Tour C. It is far, but it is worth the trip because of its secluded location, fine white sand, and clear waters. It has a rugged appearance, giving it a raw appeal. Relax on the beach, swim in the waters, and just marvel at the stunning limestone surrounding it.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Matinloc Shrine, Matinloc Island, El Nido, Palawan, Philippines

Matinloc Shrine is an abandoned site hidden at the foot of towering karst cliffs on the western coast of Matinloc Island. More formally known as the Shrine of Our Lady of Matinloc, it was built in 1982. The place has been completely neglected (with the main building almost empty), but tourists are still allowed to visit. While others may find this as a spiritual oasis, most tours make a stop here for the view. Entry fee is Php 100 (about USD 2), to be paid directly to your guide.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Secret Lagoon Beach, El Nido, Palawan Island Philippines

Miniloc Island’s Secret Lagoon (also Hidden Lagoon) is actually an open secret, and a very popular one at that. Concealed behind the towering karst cliffs, the Secret Lagoon seems like a precious masterpiece that the dark limestone walls need to protect at all cost. If it’s your first time in El Nido, make sure you don’t miss this one. As this is a premium stop, a Php 200 (about USD 4) shall be collected by the local government, to be paid directly to your guide.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Dilumacad Island, El Nido, Palawan Island Philippines

Helicopter Island, officially named Dilumacad Island, got its name because of the shape it takes when you see it from a distance. Once you get closer, it’s soft cream-colored sand and cerulean waters will lure you in and keep you entranced. It is a good place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beautiful beachscape.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Tapiutan Beach, El Nido, Palawan Island Philippines

Talisay Beach is usually the lunch stop for tourists enjoying what Tour C have to offer. Like any other beaches in El Nido, you can just jump into pure bliss of fine white sands, turquoise-green water and enjoy the view of limestone rock formations with thick foliage of greenery. Snorkeling is also another great idea as soon as you jump off into the beach. There are a lot of fishes and marine life that can be seen.
