Create an itinerary including Matinloc Island
Bask in crystal clear waters and swim to secret white sand beaches at Matinloc Island. Renowned as an area of extraordinary natural splendour, you’ll feel like you’ve found your very own piece of paradise here. Climb to the highest point on the island for incredible views of the surrounding archipelago. If you’re feeling adventurous, make your way to the island's "secret beach." Inaccessible by boat, visitors must swim underwater through a gap in the rock wall to reach the small beach, which is supposedly the very same spot that inspired Alex Garland's famous novel, "The Beach." Use our El Nido itinerary planner to add Matinloc Island and other attractions to your El Nido vacation plans.
