Good snorkeling area

The snorkeling area is between 2 islands. The coral here is beautiful beyond words. My tour guide dive in to let me touch big blue starfish. I love this island 😊

went there as we did our tour a island hopping - just to have our lunch there. to many people on a really small island. beach is full of trash. you can't swim there (only some little chinese children did). not worth visiting.

Lovely beach. The public restroom though is non-functional, not maintained, and abandoned. It was black! Awful sight.

Combine fine white sand small beaches with turquoise water around this rocky island and you come to these secret beaches you have seen before on the screen :) Best is to visit outside of the touristic season to be less crowded!

On one hand the guide would tell you how serious the people of the island are in conserving corals and marine life and on the other hand they let you lose on an island that is teeming with corals that tourists have stamped on over the years. Shimizu island is where you will have lunch on your island tour. It... More

we did not go to the beach since the current was too strong, but the area the we docked in was serious DEEP. well, it's good for thrill seekers and also a nice spot for diving.

Simizu means clear. True to its name, this island has crystal clear waters.. We did not dock but snorkel to sight stunning corals and fishes.

Turn back time when I was in El Nido, I took Tour A to explore El Nido. The first destination was Simizu Island. It has white sand beach and the sky was so clear at that time, so I made a nice picture of it.

We had our lunch at these beautiful island. Its a place away from noise from pollution and with the delicious and fresh food we ate we are in a paradise. A nice place to meditate and listen to the sound of silence.

We stayed here for snorkelling and lunch as part of Tour A, and it's one of the best snorkelling sites in El Nido. We got life jackets for the kids and they loved the snorkelling and all the marine life. The current was quite strong when we went here but we kept pretty close to the banca boat so it... More
