El Nido Tour A : Lagoons & Beaches
Before making your booking please read the Notes in the blue column on the right.
A tour of El Nido wouldn’t be complete without visiting the El Nido Tour A: Lagoons and Beaches. A must see sight for all El Nido guests and other travelers alike. It is a place where we can just relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of exploring the hidden wonders of Bacuit Bay.
The Big and Small Lagoon’s tranquil turquoise-green waters of its orchid-lined limestone walls, showcase a kaleidoscope of marine life. Scientists believe that these lagoons were actually caves which abound in these islands. The roofs of these caves must have collapsed millions of years ago, and these lagoons have emerged in their stead.
