El Nido Islands and Beaches: Snake Island & Shimizu Island

This is the third part of El Nido Islands and Beaches series. For this part, I’m going to feature Shimizu Island and Snake Island.

SHIMIZU ISLAND

The island was named after a japanese scuba diver who died near the island because of insufficient oxygen in his tank. Shimizu’s main attraction is the beautiful marine life just a couple meters from the shore. Clams and colorful fishes are just around the waters of Shimizu that’s why the island is a great place for snorkeling.

SNAKE ISLAND

This island was called snake island not because it have man-eating snakes. It is because of a long sand bar that looks like a snake from afar. The sand bar is clearly visible only when the tide is low. On both sides of the sand bar are shallow swimming areas. The opposing currents bring a myriad of interesting rocks, stones, bits of coral, and shells to both sides of the sand bridge. It connect two islands on both end.
