Secret Lagoon

A One of a kind Lagoon.....
by lakwatserong tatay

After a sumptous lunch at Shimizu Island, we headed to the "real" Secret Lagoon. It was a bit late afternoon, the sun is still up and the waters really invites us to go in swim. This island has really interesting part because it's divided into two by a giant limestone and has beautiful rock formation on it.
The Shores of Secret Lagoon
It was called Secret Lagoon because you must have to get into a hole to be able to reach the lagoon, and only one person can pass through it. And you may also wonder how it was discovered, and now part in Island hopping activities in El Nido.
Awesome Rock Formations in Secret Lagoon
We docked into one of the beach, and we walked through slippery stones and corals to reach the rock opening of the Secret Lagoon. Actually the time we visit this lagoon there already other tourist entered the lagoon, so we waited our turned for our photo opps.....^_^
The beach shore of Secret Lagoon
If you want some privacy, this lagoon is perfect for two people who want to hide from the rest of the world. Because from the beach it self, you can just walk to this rock opening, and squeee through a small hole to get to the beach inside. Where it has a really small lagoon with an equally small beach, which is on latter part of this lagoon is really deep, i think it was above 10 ft deep, we did not have the chance to go to the end part of the lagoon because we've been warned by our kuya guide....^_^
Inside The Secret Lagoon
But seeing the rock formation inside this lagoon was really awesome, seeing it was really rewarding, and had the chance to stay and swim for a while on this lagoon was really experience, because you may think how the waters comes out, since the lagoon is an enclosed space and waters comes out when the tide rises, the water inside can be.....hmmm.....stagnant...and maybe pee by some of the tourist...what do you think?.....
Entrance to Secret Lagoon
But upon saying and thinking that, it does not stop us to enjoy the waters inside this Secret Lagoon, because this could be a once in a lifetime experience....heheheheh...^_^. Below are some of our cool pictures taken inside the Secret Lagoon.

Trippers photo opss inside the Secret Lagoon
We stayed inside the lagoon for almost 30 minutes, and transfer to nearby beach that i called Secret Lagoon Cove, because far away this island, it just look a cove that been separated by 2 rock limestones that place infront of it shores.....

All in all, even though we stayed on this Secret Lagoon for 1 hour and almost in half, we're really fortunate to see a one of a kind creation. That our Lord has allowed nature to work on its ways. And be amazed of this such creations that made by time.

Next stop for our first day of island hopping is Big Lagoon also part of Miniloc Island......yahooo.....^_^
