Found in the far east coast of Miniloc Island is one of El Nido’s most celebrated wonders. Chances are you haven’t been to Palawan, but you have, in one way or another, had a quick sneak peek on the Big Lagoon’s striking features— humongous limestone pieces perfectly lined beside blazing blue waters, creating a pathway, a panoramic view out of a movie.
The lagoon allows its visitors some freedom on how they would want to enjoy paradise. Take a short swim in the shallow waters at the entrance or try the tiring but worthy kayak through the waters. I prefer to explore the lagoon in my own way: swim, tread, snorkel, and free-dive its 50-m deep cerulean waters.
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.
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.
