Nestled between Miniloc Island and Inatula Island, within the territory of El Nido Palawan, is an island whose charm is hidden underneath its cerulean waters.

Those who have stepped on its shores will agree with an energetic nod how its fine ivory sands serenaded them into sleep. On the other hand, those who have submerged in its marine territory will definitely agree when I say everything underneath Shimzu is fascinating.

One look at these snaps from our most recent trip and we guarantee you'll be sold out to the idea of an endless summer in this part of the Philippines. Do whatever floats your boat— soak in the sun, jump into its pristine waters, explore the crevices of the island's rock formation, or simply be a beach bum.

How to get there:

  • Take a flight bound to Puerto Princesa where you can hop on a van that will take you up north to El Nido for about 3 hours.
  • Several tour companies are scattered in El Nido’s town proper, offering a set of destinations for the day. Choose El Nido ‘Tour A’ which includes Secret Lagoon, Small and Big Lagoon, Shimizu Island, and Seven Commando Beach.

Nearby locations:

There are several ways to get started with your ultimate Palawan Adventure. You can opt to fly from Manila to Coron, thereafter, ride a ferry that will zip over to El Nido. Another option would be spending a day or two exploring Puerto Princesa then hop on a van that will traverse through highways to El Nido.
