Editor’s Note: This is the final post in a three part series on El Nido. Check out our other posts:

During our third day at El Nido, we decided to visit Miniloc Island, which is another island belonging to El Nido Resorts. We were originally slated to stay on Miniloc Island but we were upgraded to Lagen Island. Both islands are beautiful.

At Miniloc, we watched the jack fish feeding. Dek particularly enjoyed it. We also relaxed on the hammocks, and Mike and Dek played some b-ball.

Next, we stopped by Entalula Island for some rock climbing, snorkeling, and a picnic basket lunch.

We generally enjoyed the white sandy beaches on Entalula Island and the beautiful limestone cliff views. It was magical.

Next, we took a boat to Big Lagoon. Although you typically just take a boat through Big Lagoon, our friends noticed that you could kayak through it as well. We made a special request to kayak through Big Lagoon, and it was lovely.

Then, all five of us kayaked through Small Lagoon. You had to kayak through tiny caves where if you held your head up, you would hit the cave. It felt like the Little Mermaid.

What a beautiful resort. I look back at the photos now and can’t believe that I was ever there.  Thanks to Mike and Uyen-Minh for convincing us to splurge on El Nido Resorts!
