Experience Big Lagoon and nearby islands with your own private boat. This is the quintessential El Nido tour, featuring hidden lagoons with steep limestone walls and glassy, blue waters! Explore the dreamy Big Lagoon, rent a kayak if you wish, and enjoy their dramatic backdrop of karst formations.
Slip into a small opening and enter the Secret Lagoon, a tiny island enclosed with limestone cliffs. And then relax at the stretch of sandy white beach at Seven Commandos. This was named after the Japanese commandos who inhabited the island after World War II.
Save the best for last! The final stop is at the fantastic Simizu Island, a huge limestone formation with pockets of lovely white-sand beaches. This completes your whole day tour in the stunning Bacuit Bay!
