When people think back to their El Nido island hopping days, it’s unsurprising that Big Lagoon, Small Lagoon, Helicopter Island and Snake Island are often the stops that come to mind. Their names are very easy to remember and the destinations are definitely remarkable, but Entalula Island needs credit for being its own stunning Palawan tourist spot.
In 2019, we were incredibly fortunate to spend an entire day on Entalula Island as part of the Redbull Cliff Diving World Series activities. The island had been set up as a private beach club with food, DJs and a lot of Red Bull for an all-day beach party. Fast forward to 2021 and we returned to Entalula Island for an entirely different experience.
El Nido was only just starting to recover from the pandemic and there were very few local tourists in town. We ended up having the entire Entalula Island to ourselves to focus on getting the perfect drone shots for Carson’s photography portfolio. What luck we had!
WHERE IS ENTALULA ISLAND EL NIDO
Entalula Island is one of the dozens of islands in Bacuit Bay. It’s around an hour from the mainland by pump boat, so the only way to reach it is by joining the Big Lagoon Premium El Nido island hopping tour.
HOW TO BOOK A TOUR TO ENTALULA ISLAND
There are so many tour agencies in El Nido, it can be a little overwhelming choosing the best one. After a bit of research, we ended up going with Elnido Booking Travel and Tour, which was the best decision we could’ve made. The crew were incredible and we quickly became fast friends with them all!
