While not always included in an El Nido island hopping tour package, you shouldn’t miss to visit Corong-corong Beach. It is a few minutes away from Bacuit Bay. It offers privacy that is appealing to visitors who want to take it slow and have a quiet time in town. Bring your favorite book and put your feet up on a hammock. The bars are just a tricycle ride away, when you want a night of music and interacting with the locals.

The Secret Lagoon and Cudugnon Cave

There are about forty islands to visit in town. Island hopping tour operators created several tour options to make it easier for tourists to visit some of the town’s most popular islands. The Secret Lagoon is often part of an El Nido tour package with Island Hopping Tour A while Cudugnon Cave is part of Island Hopping Tour B.

A limestone karst keeps the Secret Lagoon hidden from view. To reach the lagoon, you have to pass through a small hole. Depending on the tide, you may have to snorkel your way through or go in on a kayak. After you’ve passed through the hole, a beautiful view will welcome you to the lagoon.

Seven Commandos Beach

The island’s name sounds like one that has a military origin, but no one can explain why it has such an intriguing name. Some say the rugged appearance of the beach mimics the beach view seen in old movies. Other say, the beach got its name from the seven soldiers who drowned near the area when their ship sunk.

Included in a typical El Nido Tour Package, you can spend time kayaking or swimming at the beach. Don’t want to do anything but lay on the beach? You may find a good spot to enjoy the sun under the shade of trees lining the beach. Seven Commandos Beach is also a popular area for picnic lunches. Most island hopping tours include a lunch at one of the islands. Ask your travel agent if they provide meals for the tour or you need to bring your own.

Break away from your hectic lifestyle for a few days. Take it slow and enjoy what El Nido has to offer. Find a reliable travel agency in the Philippines to help you plan your vacation.
