We got here as a part of one of those El Nido cruises. It's beautiful and very unique, like the entire area surrounding El Nido. I would probably recommend not missing this but I'm sure the other tours (I think this was part of the A tour) would take you to other amazing places which we missed so I wouldn't... More

This place is to good to see in good sunny weather. First you go up on the hill to see the view and than visit nearby Mangrove island. Water on Snake Island is spectacular!

I went here for my lunch break during a private boat tour from El Nido. It was high tide so the famous sand bar was submerged, but you could still walk along its entire length. The Island has a floating bar with food and drink. Once on the island you can walk up a short distance to an observation area... More

It was hightide when we got there so we did not really see the sand bar but it was great for swimming! The water was so clear it was like swimming in a pool!

this was like nothing i've seen before- the viewpoint was great and walking across that giant sandbar to the mangrove forest was really fun!. Everywhere in the el nido area has been beautiful but this island topped our tour experience.

When you rely on an organized tour, you find yourself in the middle of a hundred other boats and can not take advantage of the beauty of the place it deserves silence and inspires peace.

This island was my favorite spot of the island hopping tour with Maambeng Travel and Tours. With the clear blue waters where you can see different shades of blues, soo beautiful - like a desktop wallpaper. Then you get to walk at the end of the snake island where there's a little store that sells fresh buko juice. The people... More

After the long walk across the snake is a place to quench your thirst & minor eats. Great views from the peak only available with a tour guide

A Travel must if you're in El Nido. Summiting the Island (10 min hike - Easy to Medium) offers great views of the sand bar that connects the islands, pristine waters for swimming and diving. Bring: Water, Waterproof camers, swimmers

Warm shallow waters, not too steep a climb up to the viewpoint, Then as the tide dropped we walked the 300 metres or so across the little sand bar to a tiny bar hidden on the other side of the bay. If you take a private boat then you can decide to have large wherever rather than with the crowds... More
