El Nido: Private Tour B - Snake Island & Cave Tour w/ Lunch

4. El Nido: Private Tour B - Snake Island & Cave Tour w/ Lunch

El Nido Tour B: Delving Deep into Snake Island and Caves El Nido, located on Palawan's northern tip in the Philippines, is synonymous with crystalline waters, towering limestone cliffs, and pristine beaches. One of its sought-after boat tours is Tour B, which promises an intimate exploration of some of the area's most iconic destinations. Snake Island: Named for its distinctively sinuous sandbar rather than any reptilian inhabitants, Snake Island is a natural wonder that leaves visitors in awe. At low tide, an elongated, S-shaped sandbar emerges, connecting the island to the mainland. This white sandy pathway, bordered by clear, shallow waters on either side, offers visitors a unique walking experience with panoramic views of the surrounding islands and open sea. The island itself is draped in lush greenery, and a short hike to a viewpoint reveals a breathtaking vista of the bay. Mystical Caves: El Nido's limestone formations are home to numerous caves, each telling a story of geological history and local lore. Tour B introduces adventurers to some of these hidden realms: 1. Cudugnon Cave: Steeped in history, Cudugnon Cave is believed to have been a burial site during ancient times. The entrance requires a bit of a squeeze, but once inside, visitors are greeted by spacious chambers adorned with impressive stalactites and stalagmites. 2. Cathedral Cave: Aptly named for its towering interiors that resemble a Gothic cathedral, this cave is accessible only by boat. The sun's rays penetrate the cave's entrance, casting ethereal light patterns on its walls, making for a surreal experience. 3. Entalula Island Caves: Though not as expansive as the other caves, the caves on Entalula Island offer a mix of sand, stone, and sea. They are a testament to the erosive power of nature, carving beauty into the limestone cliffs. El Nido Tour B is not just a journey across turquoise waters but also a dive into the natural and historical tapestry of Palawan. From the captivating curves of Snake Island's sandbar to the whispered secrets of age-old caves, it's an expedition that resonates with the soul of every traveler.

What people are saying about Cathedral Cave

Overall rating

(5 reviews)

The region is magnificent and is reminiscent of both a mini Along Bay and the islands of southern Thailand. Excursion “B” is, in my opinion, much nicer than “A”. A few beaches are definitely worth seeing. Relatively good food and very friendly and competent crew. Unfortunately, as usual in the Philippines, the organization really needs to be reviewed. This time, we were treated to a false start, the crew having obviously forgotten to transmit their information to the maritime police...

A somewhat more relaxed tour since you don't meet so many other boats and tourists. The cave is not so easily accessible, but it is a place to visit. I prefer the beaches of Entalula and Papaya.

beautiful experience, the tour was organized in the best way it is really worth it, I highly recommend it.

Well organized, amazing places to see and very nice staff! Liked it very much!!!

Very funny. The guides are very nice. We hate fresh fish at lunch.
