Among the tours of El Nido, Palawan, this trip around the beaches of Bacuit Bay will give you the greatest sense of adventure and exploration. That’s because, aside from the snorkeling and diving you can do in its clear waters, you’ll also see 125-million-year-old limestones, 10th-century Chinese pottery, and a snake-like sandbar spanning an entire island.
From the pristine Pangalusian Island, the first stop will be Vigan Island, which earned the nickname Snake Island for its naturally S-shaped sandbar. Stroll the beach against the backdrop of expansive blue waters on one side and a rich green forest on the other.
After an immensely meditative moment to appreciate nature – or, one heck of a #NoFilter Instagram post – you’ll make your way to the beautiful tropical landscape of Pinagbuyutan Island. Here you’ll enjoy a lunch buffet of fish, meat, and fresh produce to sustain yourself for an afternoon of adventure. Further exploration will bring you into the shadows of giant limestone cliffs. You would want to stay forever if not for the next stop, Entalulu Island. Here it might dawn on you that each isle in Palawan is a hidden paradise waiting to be discovered, pushing you to keep sailing in search of the next wonder.
Before the end of the trip, a visit to the ancient burial site of Cudugnon Caves is a must. Once a natural catacomb from as far back as the 9th century, the cave can be entered through a small opening from the beach. Similarly, you’ll ride a boat through a narrow, though tall, entrance on Pinasil Island and into Cathedral Cave. The magnificent cavern draws you into a magical scene of rock and darkness, lit up by the reflected blue through the waters to the seabed below. They say at least one or two churches would fit within, hence its name. Don’t take a dip here, though, as poisonous sea snakes territorially swim the cold cave waters. You’ll get your chance to snorkel with the help of your tour guide before they take you back to El Nido proper.
