Create an itinerary including Small Lagoon
Enjoy the clear blue water underneath dramatic limestone cliffs fringed with lush greenery at Small Lagoon, a large pool of salt water on Miniloc Island in the middle of Bacuit Bay. Accessible only by swimming or kayaking through a very narrow 0.6-0.9 m (2-3 ft) wide gap in the rock, the remote lagoon offers scenery like that from a postcard, with water so clear that you can see the ocean floor. Rent a kayak moored outside the lagoon early in the morning, and get inside before crowds start paddling in. You can also rent scuba diving equipment, and make sure you bring a waterproof camera along to capture the scenery. Arrange your visit to Small Lagoon and discover more family-friendly attractions in El Nido using our El Nido trip planner.

  • One of the best island in el nido Kayak mode here Water is really really deep inside the lagoon You can go inside some of caves to have pictures (note 1-2 kayaks inside.Just for pics) Nice scenery and view inside
  • Find a private tour and come here before the crowds. It is so peaceful and beautiful without anyone else here. My wife and I came at 7:30am and left around 8:15, right when the first boat was pulling up for the day. You won't regret it.
