Shimizu Island is one of the most popular destinations for island hopping tours in El Nido. This island offers two beaches separated by a limestone cliff wall, and rows of coconut trees surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. It’s a great place to snorkel, swim or just relax on the beach.
The name of the island comes from the name of a diver who died in its vicinity and whose body was found there. In spite of this unfortunate origin, Shimizu Island offers the visitor excellent places for sea activities and snorkeling. And for those who are not fond of water sports, the beauty of the place makes it the perfect place to take pictures and create beautiful memories of El Nido.
You can visit Shimizu Island as part of an island hopping tour. The tour that includes this destination is called Big Lagoon Premium. It will also allow you to visit Big Lagoon and Entalula Beach, two iconic places in Bacuit Bay.
