To truly experience the beauty of El Nido, you have to take one, two, or all of the island tours offered by many resorts and tour agencies in El Nido main island.
Today, I joined a group of 13 foreigners and went around 7 Commando Beach, Small Lagoon, Big Lagoon, Secret Lagoon, and Shimizu Beach.
Below are collages of photos my naked iPhone could take during the whole day of island hopping, swimming, and snorkeling.
Those with GoPros or cameras that are water resistant will truly enjoy snorkeling in the area because of the massive brain corals and different kinds of fish you will see swimming with you.
Island tours include free use of a snorkeling gear and lunch.
