Helicopter Island, El Nido Reviews

  • nice beach. but since i went there during amihan, the waves are quite strong. you will find yourself engaged in a game of tug of war.

  • The beach in the El Nido islands is called helicopter because of its shape as in helicopter. Tourists and locals would love this one of the amazing beaches in El Nido, Palawan. One would need to contact a travel tour office in order to access to these beaches.

  • Need a drown to see why they call it helicopter island. Beach is preety

  • Great place for diving. Water is ultra clear (and a little bit colder than you get used to on the Philippines), but you van see coral snakes, squids and all sorts of tropical fish in the water.

  • This helicopter shaped island has a beautiful white (cream) sand beach. You can visit this when you avail of Tour C of the El Nido Island hopping tours. Make sure that you visit this place in the afternoon or early in the morning because it is quite hot by noon time.
