Discover the lesser-known side of El Nido when you take this fantastic boat trip to the legendary hidden beaches and the mystical Matinloc Shrine.

Hidden Beaches and Matinloc Shrine

We will collect you from your accommodation at 8:15 am and then head to the pier at El Nido, where a boat will be waiting to take us on a magical trip to the so-called 'hidden beaches'.

The first destination of the tour will be the Hidden Beach, where you discover serene turquoise waters surrounded by picturesque cliffs and abundant wild greenery. After, we sail among dense green forests to the mystical Matinloc Shrine which was built in 1982 in honor of the Virgin Mary.

Then we arrive at the Secret Lagoon, one of the most visited places in Bacuit Bay. Here you will have the chance to take a dip in the crystal clear waters before we continue sailing to Dilumacad Island, also called Helicopter Island dues to its distinctive shape.

We'll also visit Tapuitan Island, where, on its most idyllic beach, Talisay, we will enjoy a lunch consisting of meat, fish, salad, and fruit. You will also have half an hour of your time to take a swim in the beautiful emerald waters.

Finally, we will make our way back to the port of El Nido. From there we will accompany you to the hotel to finish the tour at 16:00 hours.
