Are you looking for the ultimate adventure in Palawan?! Well, I can tell you now, Island Hopping from El Nido to Coron is the definition of ultimate adventure, filled with sunshine, remote beaches, snorkeling coral reefs, epic sea caves, picturesque sunsets and much more!

The best part about the 3D2N El Nido to Coron Island Hopping is that it’s far away from the crowds that you’ll find on the other El Nido Island Hopping Tours.

I have put together this complete guide of my island hopping experience from El Nido to Coron with Buhay Isla Ecotour whose motto is ‘Expect the Unexpected’.

 

Have you got travel insurance for Philippines? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Travel Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong.

 

WHERE TO BOOK YOUR EL NIDO TO CORON ADVENTURE

The best way to book your El Nido to Coron Island Hopping Tour is to head to the Buhay Isla Ecotour website at www.buhayisla.com to see more detailed information and to book online ahead of time.

EL NIDO TO CORON – THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Island hopping from El Nido to Coron is a 3 Day’s and 2 Night’s expedition on a traditional ‘bangka’ boat stopping at a number of remote islands to explore deserted beaches, snorkel the colorful coral reefs, soak up the sun on deck and camp out in beachside bungalows under the stars.

The day before our El Nido to Coron expedition we had a meeting at Buhay Isla’s office in El Nido town. The staff were super friendly and they briefed us on the things to take along on the trip and what we could expect for the next 3 days. 

It became quickly apparent that there wasn’t going to be an agenda or timetable but that instead, we were simply going to cruise through the archipelago of islands between El Nido to Coron guided by weather and sea conditions. 

Do note that there is no electricity during the expedition, so conserve your battery on your phones and cameras for the most beautiful beaches.

EL NIDO TO CORON – DAY 1 

On day 1 we met at 9:00 am at the El Nido Bay Port to embark on our El Nido to Coron island hopping tour. We were a group of 8 travelers from the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Scotland and Australia. It was a good mix of likeminded people from all over the world! 

The Buhay Isla crew are a team of 8 people which included our tour guides, chefs, deckhands and of course the captain!

I’d like to give a big shout out to all of the Buhay Isla crew Archie, Jeprie, Jordan, Mark, Jonie, Roldan, Richard and Captain Ronel. You guys are absolute legends and I can’t thank you enough for the most memorable experience onboard the El Nido to Coron tour!

PASANDIGAN BEACH & CAVE

Our first stop on the El Nido to Coron expedition was the Pasandigan Cave. Aqua Shoes were essential for this adventurous stop as the rock formations are quite sharp and the limestone rocks tend to be very slippery.

The tour guides lead the way into the cave and even laid lifejackets down on the ground where we needed to crawl across the rocks to reach the inside of the cave.

Rays of sunlight peaked through the top of the cave which made the whole place light up on the inside and appear like a magical place out of a storybook. 

Next to the cave is Pasandigan Beach which is a great place to swim and snorkel. There was no other boat around, so we had the whole beach to ourselves and enjoyed simply strolling around the beach and going for a dip into the water.

CADLAO BEACH

Right around the corner from Pasandigan Cave is Cadlao Beach which is a picture-perfect stretch of sand that showcases shallow waters lined with coconut trees.

With the calmest and inviting waters, the beaches of Cadlao are perfect for snorkeling and swimming. The corals and fishes here are amazing. Buhay Isla will provide you with a mask and snorkel for the entire three days to make sure that your El Nido to Coron exploration is fully taken care of.

DAROCOTAN ISLAND SHIPWRECK

Before heading to the next stop, we enjoyed a delicious lunch on board the boat. In fact, the Buhay Isla expedition includes 3 meals per day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) with light snacks in between. There is also filtered water, various types of soda and alcoholic drinks for you to enjoy onboard.

The next stop on the El Nido to Coron expedition was Daracotan Island Shipwreck. It was amazing to snorkel around the shipwreck, marveling at the beautiful corals and an abundance of other marine life.

There were always new underwater creatures to discover at every spot we went to. We then jumped back on board to make our way to the first beach camp for the night.

CAMP PARU-PARU

When we grabbed sight of our beach camp as we were pulling into the cove, we were able to gather our essentials into our daypacks and put them on the kayak for the Buhay Isla crew to transfer them to the camp.

We then jumped into the water and swam to shore. Once we made the distance, we were greeted by the loveliest family who lives on the island and operates the camp.

The beach camp features bamboo and straw-thatched beach huts with mattresses, pillows and mosquito nets. It’s basic but it’s all you need for a comfortable night’s sleep. There’s also 2 toilets and 2 cold water showers at Camp Paru Paru. 

After we dropped our bags into our room, we witnessed a beautiful sunset spraying an array of colors across the sky. We enjoyed a couple of sundowners before another delicious meal. The night ended with the whole group sitting around the table playing cards. 

On Camp Paru-Paru we witnessed one of the clearest night skies and listened to the crashing waves lull us to sleep. It was the perfect end to a perfect day on the El Nido to Coron expedition!

EL NIDO TO CORON – DAY 2

 

# TAKLING ISLAND

On day 2 of El Nido to Coron island hopping our first stop was Takling Island. This gem of an island has one of the best coral reefs. It was a great way to start the day in crystal clear waters and an excellent snorkeling opportunity.

We also had the opportunity to spend some time on the white sandy beach. We were all entertained by looking for the most beautiful shells along the shoreline.

# COBRA ISLAND

Our next stop was Cobra Island which was low-key my favorite island on the El Nido to Coron island hopping expedition!

Cobra Island features a long white sand bar, azure waters, glistening white sands and coconut palm trees which makes this place the ultimate Instagram-worthy location. The snorkeling here was pretty damn awesome too!

By the time we went back to the boat a delicious lunch was already served on the table. The meals on the Buhay Isla Expedition were some of the best tasting foods I had in the Philippines!

# CAGDANAO ISLAND

After yet another delicious meal, we made our way to Cagdanao Island for the next stop on day 2 island hopping from El Nido to Coron.

Cagdanao island is surrounded by a coral reef which makes it a perfect snorkeling spot. On the beach of Cagdanao Island, there’s a volleyball net, some sheltered beach huts and a small jungle of coconut palm trees and other lush greenery. 

Another boat tour arrived at the same spot so we decided to challenge them to a volleyball competition on the beach. It was a pretty even match but I’m going to go ahead and say we won the battle haha!

The vibes on Cagdanao Island were awesome and we could have stayed at this slice of paradise all afternoon long. There were also a couple of local kids playing soccer on the beach so I went and had a kick around with them.

# CAMP DAYO

The second beach camp on the El Nido to Coron expedition was called Camp Dayo. We arrived right in time to witness another beautiful sunset over the horizon.

Stepping foot on to the shores of Camp Dayo, we felt as if we had arrived at a tropical paradise with hammocks hanging all around the campsite, timber huts dotted along the beach and swaying coconut trees. Ahh, just bliss!

EL NIDO TO CORON – DAY 3

 

# CLIFF JUMPING

To begin our 3rd and final day of the El Nido to Coron island hopping, we anchored at an epic cliff jumping location.

It was a short swim from the boat to the rocky cliffside to where there was a rope attached to help assist with climbing up to the top.

You can either jump off the rocky cliffside from a height of 1 meter, 5 meters or 8 meters. If you don’t like cliff jumping you can go swimming and snorkeling around the boat. Once everyone had made their jump from the cliffs we continued on to the next spot.

# ARAW BEACH

As our journey continued from El Nido to Coron I was feeling a little desensitised because every spot we visited, although beautiful, was alike in some way. And then we arrived at Araw Beach… the definition of tropical paradise that looked like something straight out of a postcard!

Like other islands, there are coconut palm trees, glistening white sands, small beach huts and turquoise waters. But there was just something so special about Araw Beach that stood out from the other islands between El Nido to Coron. The layout of the palm trees, the huts and the rounded beachfront are as idyllic as it gets!

We swam to the beach with our snorkel gear and walked all the way to the tip of the sand bar. There were few local fishermen hanging out in their huts, so I gave them a wave as we passed by.

We jumped into the ocean at the tip of the sandbar and I was in complete awe the most beautiful underwater scenery here. An impressive coral wall lined the outer edge of the sandbar and we were able to drift with the current whilst marveling at the outstanding corals and vibrant reef fish.

By the time I got back to the boat, I was gassed and decided to hang up the mask and snorkel once and for all.

# DITAYTAYAN ISLAND SANDBAR

Ditaytayan Island sandbar was our last stop on the El Nido to Coron expedition. This epic island hosts a long white sandbar surrounded by shallow crystalline water. It was one of the most vibrant beaches we visited and made for another perfect snorkeling spot.

We spent around 1 hour at Ditaytayan Island before making the final stretch across to the channel to Coron. Unfortunately, the sea conditions worsened with the wind and it was a bumpy ride back into Coron Bay. That was the only time we had rough seas on the entire journey from El Nido to Coron so we weren’t complaining!

Upon docking the boat in Coron Bay, it was time to say goodbye to the Buhay Isla crew and our new friends. It was hugs and hi-fives all around and we jumped in the back of a tricycle to get a lift to our accommodation in Coron town.

I seriously had the most amazing time on this El Nido to Coron expedition and I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone on their Palawan trip!
