Snake Island is one of many incredible attractions that are available during your visit to El Nido, Palawan in the Philippines. The island consists of a sandbar that is made up of incredible white sand and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful blue water you will ever lay your eyes on. If you’re thirsty there is a palapa bar where you can buy cocktails and beers. Snake Island is so scenic that it is often compared to the likes of the Maldives or the Seychelles, which is definitely good company to be in. At low tide, you can walk across the sandbar which connects to Vigan Island where you can hike up the hill and get spectacular panoramic views of the bay and the surrounding islands.
Getting to Snake Island generally involves taking a tour from El Nido. There are several different ways to take tours and each one offers up a unique experience that you may enjoy. If you’re a backpacker on a tight budget you may want to go down to the beach in El Nido and try to barter with a local who owns a boat and they will typically agree to take you. But if you’re into a more luxurious cruise that is all-inclusive then you will want to book Tour B for your place on this amazing wooden yacht that resembles a pirate ship.
