Take a day time for the Lagoon Tour (small, big, secret and 7 command beach) to see these beauties. But there were lots of people and can be crowded inside the lagoon.

Really disappointing - just a procession of boats following each other round in a circle. At least in small lagoon you can explore by kayak. So disappointing

The lagoon is beautiful and there's no taking away from that, however as divers we were horrified to see all the coral that has been damaged by the boats anchors! Huge chunks taken out where so many boats are parking up with total disregard for...More

Head on tour A to see this beautiful place. Bring a waterproof bag and waterproof case for your phone to take pics. Canoe around . It's just beautiful and the water is as warm as a bath!

Very nice and big. But it's just a visit and you can't really do anything here. Just admire the beauty. Worth a visit though just for the view.

Usually included as part of the tour , small lagoon was more impressive. I know that is only our experience. A few years ago, boats could drive into the big lagoon deep enough to explore it more full. But this time, may be due to...More

The photos are here the dream shots for everyone's instagram. I, however, prefer to jump into green emerald tropical waters rather than photographing them. Unfortunately, the stop in the big lagoon is only a photo op and most boat operators will discourage you from jumping...More

Big lagoon doesn't have any accomodations near it. It's like in the middle of the sea. Part of miniloc. You can only reach it by group/private tours. Places to stay in El Nido would be in town and surrounding areas. But... More

You should fly direct Manila to El Nido via Air-Swift. If you fly through Puerto Princesa, you can arrange for a private van or a 4x4 (+100USD one way for 4-5 people). We always recommend guests of Terra Nova - El Nido to... More
