    Stop At: Hidden Beach, Matinloc Island, El Nido, Palawan Island Philippines

    Hidden Beach is one of the places you’ll visit when you book Tour C. It is far, but it is worth the trip because of its secluded location, fine white sand, and clear waters. It has a rugged appearance, giving it a raw appeal. Relax on the beach, swim in the waters, and just marvel at the stunning limestone surrounding it.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Matinloc Shrine, Matinloc Island, El Nido, Palawan, Philippines

    Matinloc Shrine is an abandoned site hidden at the foot of towering karst cliffs on the western coast of Matinloc Island. More formally known as the Shrine of Our Lady of Matinloc, it was built in 1982. The place has been completely neglected (with the main building almost empty), but tourists are still allowed to visit. While others may find this as a spiritual oasis, most tours make a stop here for the view. Entry fee is Php 100 (about USD 2), to be paid directly to your guide.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Secret Lagoon Beach, El Nido, Palawan Island Philippines

    Miniloc Island’s Secret Lagoon (also Hidden Lagoon) is actually an open secret, and a very popular one at that. Concealed behind the towering karst cliffs, the Secret Lagoon seems like a precious masterpiece that the dark limestone walls need to protect at all cost. If it’s your first time in El Nido, make sure you don’t miss this one. As this is a premium stop, a Php 200 (about USD 4) shall be collected by the local government, to be paid directly to your guide.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Dilumacad Island, El Nido, Palawan Island Philippines

    Helicopter Island, officially named Dilumacad Island, got its name because of the shape it takes when you see it from a distance. Once you get closer, it’s soft cream-colored sand and cerulean waters will lure you in and keep you entranced. It is a good place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beautiful beachscape.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Tapiutan Beach, El Nido, Palawan Island Philippines

    Talisay Beach is usually the lunch stop for tourists enjoying what Tour C have to offer. Like any other beaches in El Nido, you can just jump into pure bliss of fine white sands, turquoise-green water and enjoy the view of limestone rock formations with thick foliage of greenery.
