    Tour picked us up from our hotel and we travelled about an hour from Puerta Princesca to the place. To note there is a lot of waiting and standing around on this tour. You have to wait for a small boat to take you to an island and then you wait again to go into the caves. We spent more time waiting than anything else.

    In saying that I would recommend this tour. It was good when you got into the caves and to learn about the history of them on headphones.

    We travelled by tuktuk from corong corong (600 pesos one way; tuktuks from Nacpan are more expensive- told 1000 pesos one way but bartered down to 800). It took 45 minutes. The beach is lovely and clean for the majority of it; golden sands, palm tree lined. The waves were huge when we were there and the red flags up so swimming wasn’t so easy but I’d imagine on calmer days the swimming is glorious. We walked the entire length of the beach and it doesn’t take long to get away from everyone and have your own secluded bit of sand. There is shade from palm trees along the beach and you can also hire parasol and loungers. There were more restaurants there than we were expecting. It wasn’t really busy but there were a few tourists around. The sunset was beautiful and silvery!
    It’s a shame about the ATVs who I can only assume are for lazy people who can’t be bothered to walk the length of the beach but want to see it so jump on noisy vehicles and ruin the calm, peaceful serene experience others wish for. The tyre marks ruin the look of the beach too.

    We kayaked in this lagoon as part of the Tour A package, and this was one of the top highlights of the tour (the other was snorkeling around Shimizu island). We paddle along the side (you may see some sea urchin on the rock in the water) all the way to the back, had a nice swim then paddle back in time to meet with our boat. Most people won’t go all the way to the back so I would recommend go all the way if you would like to have a nice quiet swim.

    Amazing view, waters so clear. You have to get in via kayak- your boatman can help you or they also have staff there. I prefer this over the big lagoon which was full on Saturday.

    Relaxing tour, the snorkeling was tame, quite a few little fish nothing special. The beaches visited were very nice, beaches were clean.

    Unforgettable entry through an opening in the rock face from the sea into an oasis of sandy beach, trees and coral. Sure you have to share it with many others - no problem!

    Floods of tourists make you think how come it is named a secret lagoon. Be wary of expectation vs reality issues. Be wary of itchy feels post swimming since planktons and jelly fishes are within your path. Before , entry entails that you are a guest of the exclusive beach resorts like Lagen and Miniloc. Now it is open season for literally everyone.,

    Our favourite beach in El Nido but we only did Nacpan Beach & Small Lagoon while we were here and have to come back and do a bigger day trip by boat one day of all the other options.

    This review is for the Sunset at Las Cabanas - at the very end of the strip.

    They had a perfect view of the sunset settling by the mountain islands (or rock mountains I am not quite sure) and the sea. It was a perfect place to have some quiet dinner date or relaxed hang out with your friends. Unfortunately, it was cloudy during our visit so we didn’t get to take a photo of the actual sunset.

    For the service, I have no complains. They are very attentive, very friendly, and very quick. They even offered taking our picture by the beach since they noticed that my partner and I are struggling to take good selfies.

    For the food, it was pretty decent. We ordered (i forgot the official name but here is the closest i can compare it with) lechon kawali with mexican rice and patatas bravas. For the drinks - beer (corona) and mango shake. I wouldn’t say it was top quality but it’s not bad as well.

    Will definitely come back for a great overall experience!

    Who would have thought that rock could be hollow that creates an echo when tapped? An introduction to Caving and rock climbing. The guides are very knowledgeable and helpful.

    This site looks amazing. While the downside is that the caretakers collect entrance fee which should have been already included in the tour, the view from the a very brief climb to the rocky mountain looks superb.

    My visit was in 2016. It was well serviced and for me, pleasantly not as busy as the likes of Borocay.
    The waters were pristine and the sand as soft as one could dream of. Without a doubt, a piece of heaven on earth.

    Pristine, beautiful, clean, serene... exotic birds residing here, monitor lizards roaming about.. all the pampering provided by El Nido resorts, snack, refreshments, fruits, even booze with happy hour rates... perfect indeed
