El Nido Tour A ➡ Hi Guys! 2017 is closing in on us in just a couple of days and I still have A LOT of back logs to upload and I’ll be sure to start some drafts since I’m currently on holiday from work.
I wrote about Tour C about a month ago which you can check out here. And now I’ll be sharing with you all another popular tour choice while in El Nido, Tour A.
Tour A usually consists of the following islands/beaches:
- Small Lagoon
- Big Lagoon
- Secret Lagoon
- Shimizu Island
- 7 Commandos Beach
We headed to the Small Lagoon first, here you need to rent a kayak to get through. At the time (around April 2017) the rates were around P300 per kayak. We spent around 30 mins – 1 hr here.
For this place you want to make sure its not super crowded so you can get that perfect shot! Also before you enter make sure all your cameras/phones are ready as you’re not really able to stop because there are usually boats lined up behind you. Although don’t worry too much, it’s a huge lagoon! You’ll definitely have enough time to take a lot of beautiful photos.
The entrance to the Secret Lagoon is quite small so only one person at a time can go through (Again, mind your head! The rocks are quite sharp). It may take a couple of minutes to get through depending on the people lined up, we waited I think 5-10 minutes.
This is a popular place for lunch although I’m not sure if this is where we stopped, but here’s a photo of our lunch! Sooooo goood, prepared fresh from the boat.
7 Commandos Beach
We spent the rest of the afternoon here, relaxing, taking photos and having some afternoon tea.
There are also some photographers on the beach that will take “trick shot” photos of you. At the time it was P100 with about 10 shots from your phone/camera. They’ll also take some on their DSLR and you can choose to have it printed for P250. It’s a little overpriced but my mum and I liked the photos and they’ll also transfer the softcopies on your phone/memory card.
Did you take Tour A while you were in El Nido, Palawan? Which part was your favorite? Let me know in the comments section below. I’d love to hear your thoughts! ♥
