Full description
This unique tour will take you over the world-famous beaches of El Nido that include Hidden Beach, Secret Beach, Helicopter Island, Tapiutan Beach and Matinloc Shrine.

a great Variety of difference beaches. make sure you have enough Cash to buy beers and cooldrinks during the trip. the Guide Chris was great and he used his inside knowledge to avoid the big crowds. A huge plus as it made us feel like the only people there. the food was fantastic and the whole day was great.

They really look after you!

We were booked with LoveLyn tours, and their service was incredible. We had forgotten to bring the environmental fee tickets we received from a previous tour (we didn’t know that they were used for every offshore tour), they biked over one of us back to the place we were staying in just to get them and save us money. And I wasn’t feeling my best the day of the tour, but they really set a great mood and fun attitude that made the trip incredible! Thank you Lovelyn Tours!

By the way, the price is very low considering the contents. It is a tou
