ive been to Bonaire and many reefs,, by far this island is the Best in the world for snorkeling, Hoping that the Chinese and Americans don't find it as other things, it will be destroyed. this is not a place for children under 21 as they will ruin the reef system

This is one of the beautiful white sand beaches in El Nido. This is not a developed one unlike the rest but it offers you the serenity of nature and the pristine beauty of the place. Our bangkero brought us to this beach and we didn't have anyone else with us in the island. It was definitely an experience!

I stayed at the shore coz I prefer just to lay on the sand and soaked in the sun and warmth. But my kids and husband had a great time snorkeling. My girls were able to get a good video of their awesome snorkeling. Unforgettable wonderful experience.

This was our lunch stop of tour C. The reef off to the left of the beach had the best snorkeling we did in El Nido. The coral is really colorful, water is clear and the reef has a sudden drop really deep. Saw some star fish, a puffer fish and a bunch of other colorful fish I can't name.... More

It was named Star Beach because this is the place in El Nido where you can find a lot of starfish. Unfortunately, we haven't seen even one, but instead we have seen a huge "pawikan"!
