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. Your day begins with an early departure to El Nido Pier, where you'll travel to your first stop: Helicopter Island, named for its unique rock formations that from a distance looks like a helicopter. Visit Matinloc Shrine, which is also known as the Shine of Our Lady of Matinloc, a spritual oasis. After learning the stories behind this location, indulge in a delicious barbecued lunch and then head off to the Secret Beach. Hidden away from the shoreline, it's like your own private paradise. Don't miss out on the chance to see and swim along El Nido's finest beaches.

This is a great tour that takes you to some fantastic beaches and swim spots, away from the crowds of Tour A. The guides are always excellent and friendly and very helpful. Lunch is amazing, worth the price alone! I definitely recommend this tour company, we took 2 of their tours. Tour A is the most popular and most crowded so this Tour C was a nice change of pace to relax more. The company is also very accommodating and communicative.

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!
