It's one of the most beautiful lagoons that I've ever seen. I don't think words and pictures are enough to describe this beauty.

Very beautiful, but would have been nicer if there were less tourist boats. You can get nice pictures, but it's hard with so many boats. The water is amazing!

The water of elnido is incomparrable.will surely come back. This is part part of island hopping A. It pays to go early so there will be fewer people.

View is nice. Boat just circled around the place. Our guide had planned well that we were always at the site before the flock of tourists arrive.

You're trip to El Nido, Palawan wont be completed if you didnt visit Big Lagoon. It's worth for a long travel from Puerto Princesa City

Photos do not do this place justice. Just beautiful and a must see when visiting El Nido. We visited the big lagoon as part of a day trip that also included the small lagoon. Buffet lunch was provided at shimizu island

we didn't knew that this was just a 10 minutes boat tour thing. many boats are in a line driving next to each other on the right side and do a tour at the end of the lagoon - that's it. don't think you can enjoy this like in the youtube videos! ... just sayin i rated this with full... More
