There are many activities to do in El Nido.

Island Hopping is the main attraction in El Nido and totally devoted to the over 50 beaches in the marine reserve of Bacuit Bay. There are a number of tour operators that offer different island hopping day trips and some include kayaking during their tours as well. Alternatively you can also hire kayaks, paddle boards, windsurfer or go on an early morning fishing experience.

Scuba Diving is a popular activity, as there is a wealth of marine life and abundant reef here. The are many dive centers in and around town offering fun dives, dive courses in PADI and SSI, discovery scuba dives and even night dives. You can find out more on the scuba page.

You can never bore of the islands, but sometimes you may hunger for something a bit different. No problem, El Nido boasts much more. Through the tourism office, you can book tours with the El Nido Tour Guides Association. They can take you Cliff Climbing which gives a marvelous birds-eye view. Venture north of the town and you can go Cave Exploring, and also discover the Waterfalls.

Perhaps you prefer to hit the dirt track and make your own adventure. Simply hire a Motorbike, fill up with gas and explore away. North of the town there is a circular road taking you round both sides of the mainland. You can hire motorbikes from Pitstop Motorbike and Car Rental. If you prefer a slower look at the local scenery you can also hire mountain bikes.

Long walks can be undertaken at either end of El Nido, heading north towards the airport to Lamuro Beach or south passed Corong Corong Beach for hours.

Can't wait to share your experiences with friends and loved ones until you get home? Internet access is available at internet cafe's and many establishments offer free wifi.

After a long day under the sun you may want to simply unwind. Massages centers are spread out all over the town and available at almost every resort in request.

Or perhaps you are invigorated and want to catch a live band? There are many live bands performing every night at venues such as Balay Tubay, Phukka Bar, Sea Slugs and Artcafe.

Before you leave you may want to take a remembrance with you from El Nido. Well please do not take any wildlife. There are Souvenir shops in town and some resorts have little boutiques offering local handicrafts and souvenirs. Do not buy products made of animals and sea shells.
