Tour Day – January 4, 2017
We wake up 6:00AM in the morning to move things around early. We had our heavy breakfast at Lolo Oyong Pension House, included in the room charges. They served pinoy foods and you can have hot pandesal and you can make your own drink. After breakfast, we went to Doublegem Beach Resort and dropped our things.
We didn’t booked online, we just asked our tricycle driver if he knows any and he suggested Islanen Outdoor Tour.

First, we started the tour visiting the Small Lagoon. It was not so crowded yet by that time buy you’ll see a lot of people coming in already.
I can’t say enough words to describe. The lagoon is so beautiful, you could only reach it by kayaking. The rent for Kayaking is PHP300.00 good for two people, perfect for a couple.
For me it was the best spot on the entire Tour A. We could have stayed in this place longer.
We wanted to do snorkeling here but the current was quite strong when we went there. We had our lunch at this beautiful island. We enjoyed the lunch prepared by our tour guide and it was delicious. We saw Iguana on the rock.
Secret Lagoon Beach
There’s a lot of tourists queuing up to get a look at the Secret Lagoon. You have to swim through a hole, it looks like a cave. So, we just took lots of photos.
It was already afternoon when we reached this place. Big Lagoon is part of very popular Island Hop Tour A. The view is so relaxing, it’s a natural beauty. Great for swimming.
Seven Commandos Beach
This was our last stop. It was not so crowded when we reached this island. There´s a food stall where you can buy snacks and drinks. We bought halo-halo.
We watched the sunset here, it was a nice beach with less big waves. Couple shots here were taken by our tour guide. Overall we enjoyed our whole day tour in El Nido, Palawan. It was passed 6PM already when we reached the town. We had dinner at Boodle Fight and nutella crepe at Dos Quadros Pizza.
We supposed to booked Tour C from them as well but it was not available that time. The travel tours told us that it was restricted by the coast guard.
We compiled our short videos and photo slideshow below 🙂
