  • We visited Secret Lagoon Beach among other beaches as part of an excursion we hired during our stay in El Nido. From the outside you only see a rock wall, but after passing through a small entrance at the bottom, you find a kind of lagoon with a small beach flanked by high rocks. The first thing I would advise is to bring water slippers because when you arrive with your boat, you will first have to swim from the boat to the entrance of the beach and then you will have to walk and if you go barefoot it is sure that you will hurt the sole of your feet. We were lucky because when we arrived there was no one inside and we were able to enjoy a relaxing bath and the playita which is very small, after being there Asian tourists started to arrive and at the time of the most boom of visitors we could be more of cie n people. The newcomers were very noisy so the peace was over, but I joined them and I had a great time, I laughed a lot because we enjoyed as children and we made very nice photos we played the wheel and choreographed inside the water , which was quite difficult as they all wore life jackets in half a meter of water. At the time of departure it was quite complicated, since both to enter and to leave there was queue of people waiting.

  • Too much world water very murky, even if the lagoon is beautiful in it mm is disappointing Seeing it without anyone might be better.
