    The access is made through a hole in the rock, entering realize a beautiful lagoon with murky waters because there were a lot of people. The beach which is situated beside is beautiful, with crystal clear waters and rocks protruding, is worth the visit.

Where to stay in El Nido

Long since established as a domestic tourist destination, El Nido's growing international reputation has led to a number of eco-tourism and resort-style options popping up in recent years. The main town on the west coast offers the greatest choice, with sprawling luxury resorts, hotels, and guesthouses all enjoying convenient access to the surrounding islands. Staying on one of the islands presents an exciting alternative, although you'll find the choice largely limited to luxury hotels.
