Miniloc Island Details

Despite having mostly a jagged coastline, with only pockets of white sand beaches, Miniloc Island is famously known for two of the most beautiful lagoons in the tours of El Nido. 

Miniloc Island - El Nido, Palawan

Inside Small Lagoon

The first one of these two is called Small Lagoon. It is a beautiful lagoon that is hidden behind two large gate-like limestone rocks. It is reachable by means of swimming or kayaking through the gap of the said rock. You can read more about this lagoon by clicking this link: Small Lagoon

The entrance of the famous Big Lagoon

The other lagoon is called Big Lagoon. It is famously known for its beautiful entrance and passageway that leads to the lagoon. One can't help but snap photos of the azure waterway in the middle of two towering craggy limestone cliffs. It's probably the perfect backdrop for anyone looking for the best profile picture.
