  • Like snake island and other places that would definitely catch my attention if they found themselves anywhere else in the world, this island is nice but nothing special when compared to other gems...

  • The island looks like a helicopter from afar – very unique island in Bacuit Bay. Great atmosphere very laid back & relax – perfect place to chill out & unwind. Perfect place for swimming, gentle...

  • Helicopter Island is a feature of El Nido, Palawan. As of 2022, it is still part of Tour C, which is one of four series of tour packages offered in Palawan. This tour starts from about 9am to 5pm. Price varies from tour agency or hotel since some hotel also offer tours as part of their promotional package. But I do recommend getting a tour package with a hotel so you can get a hotel as well as tour for a cheaper price compared to getting them separately. This island offers one of the best snorkeling sites in El Nido. There is a protected area so you can enjoy snorkeling and watching living corals, thousands of marine animals, and much more. I highly recommend visiting this place especially if you are an ocean enthusiast. We really enjoyed our time here.
  • Activities here are snorkeling and swimming. This is part of tour package C of any travel agencies in El Nido Palawan.
