Small Lagoon Tours

Much like the neighboring Big Lagoon, the Small Lagoon is a scenic cove where reality seems to meld with a place that’s out of a tropical dream. Unlike its larger cousin, however, the Small Lagoon offers added adventures like swimming in hidden sea caves, and squeezing through narrow holes in the rocks to access the placid waters. This spot is popular with kayaking tours since they can squeeze through the narrow openings, but it’s just as easy to swim through the channel and emerge in the tranquil lagoon.

Because of the shear, near vertical walls and towering karst formations, swimming or paddling through the Small Lagoon can make you feel like you’re on the set of a Hollywood action film. A place this naturally stunning, after all, couldn’t possibly be real, yet here it is just a boat ride away from impossibly gorgeous El Nido.

Insider's Tip: There’s a small sea cave toward the back of the lagoon where you can swim inside through the inky black darkness and go as far as you dare.

Practical Info

The Small Lagoon is on Miniloc Island just minutes from the Big Lagoon. It’s accessed as part of “Tour Route A,” and popular with El Nido island hopping tours that visit the scenic coastline.
