Early in the morning catch a traditional Filipino boat and visit the lagoons. The blue water trapped between the giant rocks look like a mirror reflecting the sky. The warm water is full of colored fishes and corals, the green forest around the lagoons remind me of the Jurassic Park movie.
Some of the lagoons can’t be reached by boat, you will need to paddle your kayak and pass underneath the rocks to visit the small lagoons. I’m not a kayak expert, and in a few moments, I struggled to pass through the tiny rock gates, but totally worth it! The Lagoon tour and the Kayak tour can be done on the same day, morning or afternoon. This is not the best place to swimming, so keep your mermaid moves to the next activity in El Nido.
The boat will sail around the Bacuit Bay passing by small islands, caves, tiny beaches… One place more beautiful than the other! Prepare your camera and your swimming suit, the boat will stop by Snake Island for a cooling dip on the sandbar beach and a pleasant walk to the view point. It’s hard to say what I enjoyed the most: the wind on my face, the sun or the ice-tea served on board. The island hopping is a perfect example of a luxury activity in El Nido.
El Nido is a protected area, and the marine life is outstanding. There are several spots for snorkeling or diving, depending on your experience the guide will lead you to a different beach or island. One thing you can be sure, the water is transparent and you will be amazed by the corals and fishes.
The corals were beautiful and many huge fishes hiding under the rocks.
The days in paradise end in a special way! The sunsets in The Philippines are the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
