 “The water is so blindingly blue it makes the Caribbean Sea look murky in comparison. 

And the sunsets? Well, they’ll ruin you for life”

- Caitlin Morton, Condé Nast’s Traveler


Placed 9th in the 2020 Condé Nast’s Traveler's magazine annual Readers’ Choice Awards, 25 Best Island Beaches in the World, this recognition tells you something about El Nido. 

Offering luxury island resorts and affordable accommodations, it is famous worldwide for its stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters, and limestone cliffs. Every part of El Nido is picturesque, so we made a list to get you started on your bucket list.




Snake Island 


The island derives its name from its S-shaped feature, which is more noticeable during low tide. Here, visitors can enjoy a leisurely walk on a sandy strip that separates the ocean from the mangrove forest. Additionally, Snake Island is a perfect spot for swimming, snorkeling, and beachcombing. The island also has a viewing deck that provides a panoramic vista that overlooks Bacuit Bay and the surrounding islands.




The Big Lagoon


The Big Lagoon Lagoon prides itself on a tranquil turquoise lagoon that starts with shallow waters and opens up to an epic lagoon. The crystal-clear waters reflecting the greenery from nearby cliffs lend a serene atmosphere making it the perfect spot for kayaking. Visitors can also explore the lagoon by snorkeling through the abundant sea life at the entrance. Besides, with its stunning rock formations, glistening white sand, and clear waters, the Big Lagoon is an excellent location for photo sessions. 




Hidden Beach


Tourists and locals said that Hidden Beach is one of the most impressive and unforgettable places to visit in El Nido. Nestled in between two towering cliffs, the Hidden Beach is truly a hidden gem. You can only access it by wading through shallow rocky waters, which can feel like discovering a secret paradise. The water is crystal clear, and the sand is as fine as powder. It is an ideal spot for swimming, snorkeling, or relaxing on the beach. You may even find clownfish in the corals!




Small Lagoon


If you want a more secluded and peaceful experience, visit the Small Lagoon. This stunning lagoon is surrounded by towering cliffs, which means you can only reach it by swimming through a small opening in the rocks. The water is calm and crystal clear, and marine life and corals are abundant. You can rent a kayak to paddle around the lagoon and enjoy the stunning views.
