Very good places to relax and experience nature at its best. Most of the beaches were clean. Even the places for snacks and drinks were clean.

We got off the outrigger boat and walked along the sandbar which took us to Snake Island. In the island is kiosk/bar run by a couple that lives on the island. They had cold drinks and fresh young coconuts. We ordered a coconut each and drank it while swinging on the hammock tied between the trees amidst orchid blossoms. Make... More

There is a title channel that forms in the shape of a snake, hence the name. We saw starfish and a monkey. Climb up to the top and the view is wonderful.

it is been great to explore the hidden beaches of El Nido Palawan. One of the islands included in our first day tour is the snake island. Although the sand bar is not visible, the entire island is truly captivating.

This place is amazing. The weather was good when we went, even during the rainy season. Not crowded at all. I do recommend visiting one of these places when you go on island hopping tour. Check out wwe.discoverelnido.com. The crew was amazing and the tour guide was very helpful.

We held our pre wedding drinks reception on Snake island. The resort arranged for a fully catered bar, food, and music to be provided. Access is limited to low tide only, and the island disappears when the tide comes back...well worth the journey to experience a magical moment.

The climb up the small mountain is totally worth it for the amazing 360 degree views of the bay! The monkey that lives in the island got a bit aggressive... so stay clear.

I went to the snake island as part of island hopping tour. I expected it to be more beautiful than what I imagined taking into consideration the surrounding beauty of the area. The sand connecting the two lands is not that long and you should go when there isn't any tide so it will be more obvious and enjoying. I... More

Snake Island is a sandspit connecting a small island to the main island. We went as part of Tour B, arriving at low tide when the sandspit is exposed. There were several other tour boats there, but it is spacious enough. We walked up to the viewpoint, passing a monkey along the way. Then we walked the length of the... More
