El Nido 2006 (Part 3)

The next cluster here is the Matinloc-Tapuitan Island. The Matinloc island is where we found our favorite beach spot. This island is a very long island, so it would take a whole daytime to explore and enjoy this island. Parallel to this, is the Tapuitan Island. We never land to this island, but it is very near Matinloc Island. I think you can do so if you want to, but in our case we did not have ample time.

Matinloc Island

Here’s a picture of our favorite spot….

Then, you can also find here the secret beach… where you have to swim through the hole to get to the secret beach… I think this place is a good snorkeling place…

You can see Tapuitan Island here…

Interestingly, there is a church here in the heart of the island. This is called the Matinloc Church…

I guess this was our favorite island here in El Nido. And we have been to only 3 spots in this island – Matinloc Church, Lunch spot at the beach, and Hidden Beach.
