Helicopter Island The first island on the itinerary of Tour C in El Nido is the famous Helicopter Island. It isn’t hard to figure out how this island earned it’s name with a distinctive helicopter shape, visible from a side profile. Matinloc Shrine Matinloc Shrine is a bit of a weird stop on an island hopping tour and it is probably the least impressive thing to do on Tour C. It is essentially an abandoned shrine. Hidden Beach Hidden Beach is known to be a haven for the endangered clownfish, which is made popular by the animated film Finding Nemo. There are around three seaweed havens where these fishes are found Secret Beach The Secret Beach is a piece of paradise concealed by the cliffs and is only accessible through a narrow crevice. One has to swim through this opening to reach this place, shining even under the shade created when the sun kisses the cliffs. Talisay Beach Talisay Beach is one of the lesser-known islands in Palawan, but it doesn't make it less beautiful than its more famous counterparts. It's known as the preferred lunch stop of most boatmen. The beach is located at Tapiutan Island, just a few minutes away from Matinloc Shrine.

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.

Very nice activity for the day. We discovered a lot of beautiful places. We were lucky with the weather. The crew were fun and the food yummy.

Beautiful scenery. Would really recommend the private tour. Alvin our tour guide, was very helpful
