El Nido Islands and Beaches: Small & Big Lagoon

Upon arriving at El Nido town, you’ll be greeted by tons of travel agents eager to book you in one of the boat tours to explore the islands. There were 4 different tours and they are labelled as Tour A, B, C & D. The prices are generally the same at every tour agency. These tours includes the most scenic  and visited  islands..

On my stay in El Nido, I took tour  A & B which include the following:

Tour A: Small lagoon, Big lagoon, Secret lagoon, Shimizu island and the 7 Commando.

Tour B: Snake Islands, Cudugnun Cave, Catherdral Cave, Pangulasian island and Pinagbuyutan Island

 

Each destinations offer a wonderful experience so I decided to make this a series of articles about El Nido Islands and Beaches to give highlights in each spot. I’ll be posting 2 spot per article and will let the pictures speak for themselves, since the magnificence of this little piece of paradise cannot be justly described with words.

SMALL  & BIG LAGOON

According to Wikipedia, the Big and Small Lagoon’s tranquil turquoise-green waters of its orchid-lined limestone walls, showcase a kaleidoscope of marine life. Scientists believe that these lagoons were actually caves which abound in these islands. The roofs of these caves must have collapsed millions of years ago, and these lagoons have emerged in their stead.

El Nido is pristine and the island hopping tours are one of the BEST way to experience the beauty of the archipelago.
