The view of the Secret Lagoon is just magical! It is very peaceful, beautiful, and simply great to admire as you look upwards, sinking your ears into the water and flapping your arms to stay afloat. While we were there, there was one orange flower just above the entrance to the Secret Lagoon, and that was beautiful as well!

As far as accessibility is concerned, I would not recommend solo travelers, seniors, PWDs, pregnant, or mothers with babies to go especially when the water is high enough. At the entrance, the water has a strong push. If pushed upwards, you needs to watch your head. And below the water are some rocks that you can bang your legs and feet against. You can still be careful but once the water pushes you, you have no choice but to go with it. Our guide got us through by having us lay on our backs, and he would float us right through with experienced timing. Our mother with a baby ended up staying at the beach with a cover until we were done inside.

If you get thirsty, you can always buy fresh coconut juice from the friendly men on the little boats. They will charge you for them when you get back to your main boat. It is about P100/buko during our visit. Sounds pricey but this money can help them a lot! They are even supportive to those who can't really swim, because they can paddle you back to your main boat if you need help or feel tired fighting against the current.

I also suggest waterproofing your mobile phones so you can capture pretty photos inside. I should have done this, actually.

I guess this lagoon was once a secret as it has a very small entry through the rock wall that many people would not have known about, but island hopping Tour A now shares the secret large coral lagoon with everyone. It is quite deep at the far end.

Floods of tourists make you think how come it is named a secret lagoon. Be wary of expectation vs reality issues. Be wary of itchy feels post swimming since planktons and jelly fishes are within your path. Before , entry entails that you are a guest of the exclusive beach resorts like Lagen and Miniloc. Now it is open season for literally everyone.,

It was just a small lagoon where you had to crawl a bit to get to. Good for a quick stop in your island hopping tour.

we went to El Nido before the pandemic, unfortunately, we only got a glimpse of the secret lagoon due to high tide. We faced rough waters on our way there and on our way back. Sadly, I wasn't able to take a photo of it due to rough waves.

Again we were alone and could have stayed there for hours. It was really nice and the water was so green. The adjoining beach with the hut was likewise amazing.

If you go during high tide, it would be hard to swim through the hole as the current is also strong. Our guide made us lie down on our backs (3 of us) and held on to each other feet while he pulled us to get to the hole. It was worth the challenge. The secret beach is lovely.
