El Nido Full Day Tour - Caves and Coves: El Nido is a Philippine municipality on Palawan Island. It’s known for its white-sand beaches, coral reefs and as the gateway to the Bacuit archipelago, a group of islands with steep karst cliffs. Discover the wonders of El Nido Caves and Coves with 5 major destinations including Pinagbuyutan Island, Pangulasian Island, Cudugnon Cave, Cathedral Cave and Snake Island.
Pinagbuyutan Island - soft powdery white sand comparable to the world's best beaches. The water is shallow for about a couple of meters from the shore and then a few meters away you will see a snorkeling area full of fishes. Get captivated by the emerald green color of the water and the phenomenal seascape fronting island.
Pangalusian Island - It has one of the widest stretches of powdery white beaches in El Nido, which is very ideal for sun bathing, sunset viewing, and other beach activities. The waters fronting the beach are clusters of coral reefs that make this area a good snorkeling and diving site.
Vigan and Snake Island - Located near Pangulasian Island, it is also referred to as "Snake Island", because of the fine natural sands pit (s-shaped sandbar) that "snakes" off its shores. The sands pit is clearly visible only when the tide is low. On both sides of the sands pit are shallow swimming areas. Climbing the hill of the nearby island provide a glimpse of an awe inspiring seascape and a bird's eye view of Bacuit Bay.
Cadugnon Point and Cave - It is an important anthropological site, where jewelry and pottery dating back to the Sung Dynasty (960-1279 BC) were yielded. The anthropologists believe that the cave dwellers were from Borneo, and travelled across the ancient land bridge that connected Palawan from Borneo. A small opening hidden among the rocks near the beach reveals a cathedral like cave inhabited by sea sparrows. Inside you’ll see spectacular rock formations and a way to climb a small limestone hill.
Pinasil Island and Cathedral Cave - The Island has a cathedral-like cavern accessible by dinghy and kayak. Its cool interior is lit at certain times of the day by sunlight coming through an opening at its peak. This is one of important sites for the busyadors or the birds' nest gatherers.
