This is my 2nd time in El Nido. The first time was September of last year also for business trip (Apulit Island Resort). This time around I get to see the lagoons and other El Nido Resorts.

Day 1 – Miniloc Island Resort, Lagoons & Pangulasian Island Resort

Booked our flight via Airswift (6AM). They are the only one who provides direct flight going to El Nido other commercial airlines land in Puerto Princesa (3-4 hrs away from El Nido).

1st stop Miniloc Island (Eco-Discovery Island)

Before going to small and big lagoons we stayed here to grab breakfast.

Just look at that view!

2nd stop – Small and Big Lagoons! Kayak time!

Just 10-15 mins via outrigger boat from Miniloc Island.

Best time to go here is in the early morning from 7AM-9AM. The place can get crowded before and during lunch time. The tours are usually scheduled 11AM-1PM. Try to avoid the crowd as much as possible.

where the “magic” happens! 🙂

Day 2 to 4 – Lagen Island Resort (Eco-Sanctuary Island)

We stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights. We conducted a program for their supervisors/team leads/ OICs.

The resort is good for seminars because they have 2 conference type rooms just below the dinning area.

Five stars – food and service! Sarap ng food Chef Carlos and Chef Rico!

Go grab a kayak and witness the sunrise or visit cove 2! (Look for Jake)

Bring your dive mask and snorkel and see what Lagen Island offers down below! You may get to see a school of Parrot fish and Purse-eyed scad near the limestone formation in the middle of the resort entrance.
