As with most of the places on the boat tours around El Nido this place is suffering from over 3xposure to 7ncontrolled tourism which is in danger of destroying this beautiful place. The small lagoon is ok but it’s beauty is diminished by the sheer vol7me of tourists.
They will try to get you to hire a kayak but we just swam 8n and for this lagoon that was f8ne

The small lagoon is the first stop under the Island Tour Package A. Tourist s have to hire a "kayak" which cost Php 400.Going to the small lagoon is challenging because you have to "paddle, paddle, paddle" . Once you get there you will be awed how unbelievably beautiful it is. Indeed, it is one of my favorite island in El Nido!

Going to this lagoon, you have a choice if you want to use the Kayak (which I recommend) or you can swim. The water is VERY DEEP so unless you're a good swimmer, you can use the life vest. Also, the water is very clear and the there is a small rock formation where you have to pass and will lead you to the majestic beauty of the lagoon.

If you are going to El Nido, do not miss the island tours to the hidden beaches. It is truly a unique experience. The nature in the Philippines is so special, enjoy every moment of it.
