Beautiful beach but sadly very busy with all tourist boats

I loved discovering this beautiful beach but sadly there was around 100 people already there. I don't understand why with over 7000 islands all the tourist boats go to the same locations??

By the name it is hidden, you will enjoy going there and going inside the hidden beach but dont expect too much. Because it was small hidden beach it can be easily be crowded. Water is not clear, not a good spot for snorkelling.

You kind of feel like in the lord of the flies here. It's a very touristy place, but still the beach is absolutely wild. There are no constructions and you can actually go into the jungle at the back of the beach. It's very small though and you will most likely get there by swimming (water can be too shallow... More

This beach would be nice if it wasn't so overcrowded, but unfortunately it's one of the main areas that nearly all tours stop at. It's nothing special, and full of tourists.

This was my favorite part of Tour C in El Nido. The beach is only knee to thigh deep and is very good for just lazing around. The water is so clear and clean. What I like is that it comes as a bit of a surprise since you have to swim your way through.

Awesome! It's really a challenge before arriving on this hidden beach at first. There are big rocks and big waves so better be careful. It's advisable to be with your tour guide assisting you in going inside. It's my first time jumping in the sea that deep and not a good swimmer. Never thought that I can accomplish something like...
