Experience Small Lagoon and nearby islands with your own private boat. There’s no shortage of scenic views when you go on Tour D, which takes you to the most loved lagoon in Bacuit Bay along with four other destinations. Many of these have idyllic white-sand beaches with beautiful limestone formations, great snorkelling sites, and even sunset views!
The highlights of this tour are Small Lagoon and Cadlao Island. Shaped like the back of a camel, Cadlao Island is the highest (608m) as well as the largest in Bacuit Bay, spanning over 1,000 hectares. Cadlao is gifted with lush forests, powdery beaches, and a mesmerizing lagoon with snorkeling areas. Meanwhile, you can rent a kayak, explore the mesmerizing Small Lagoon, and enjoy the sights of dramatic high limestone cliffs.
Other attractions included in this tour are Ipil Beach, Nat-Nat Beach, Bukal Island, and Paradise Beach. These are uncrowded serene beaches with the allure of the Philippine countryside as well as great views of the sunset. Compared to other tours in Bacuit Bay, Tour D is more laid-back and less crowded, but definitely just as memorable!
