Our World-Famous Islands

A day of island-hopping in El Nido can be the most unforgettable day of your life. Snorkel among tropical fish, look out for exotic birds, sunbathe in the privacy of an uninhabited white-sand island, explore limestone caves, and swim through a hole in a cliff to find the Hidden Beach. Savor a picnic lunch to be cooked by bonfire on the beach.  Passing on island-hopping is like having never gone to El Nido.

Beyond Island-Hopping

After the standard island-hopping tours, there's still loads to explore in and around El Nido. Rent a motorbike and traverse the countryside to explore incredible beaches and waterfalls. Don't go home without taking it all in!
