Just like most of the beautiful places visited on the many island boat tours we took, this was brilliant. The waters and surrounding islands were gorgeous.

We came here on one of our boat tour stops. We hired a kayak (desperate cost of the boat tour) and kayaked for about an hour. This place is brilliant and great for instagramming! There are stingless jellyfish in the water too which is cool....More

This was one of the highlights of the trip! Kayaking to the small lagoon and once you're in the area is a magical surprise! This is a must see when you're in el nido! Even my kids enjoyed the magical moment in the small lagoon!

Went for trip A with El Nido boutique & artcafe. Beautiful lagoon, turquoise water, dramatic scenery. Best seen in a kayak.

This is was easily the best part of tour A. We took a kayak for the extra fee and it makes it so much easier to explore, then beat everyone back and snorkel around the boat.

I can say that most likely yes. There are many tours going there (tour A - most popular tour) But don't worry, it's fun and beautiful anyway.
