by lakwatserong tatay

The last island destiantion we had in El Nido. One of the four island known in Cadlao Island, known as Bocal Point, infact this island has many names...like Bukal Beach and Bukal Island. An island that is known for snorkeling and kayaking activities because of its cryrstal clear waters, undersea wonders and shallow coral gardens.

At closer look...^_^
Bukal island, is an small island that stands separated from the Cadlao Island but not far from each other, passing between them, you can see some Bahuras / Corals. Different species of the corals are available and can be reached via kayaking. It'seawater was pretty cold, i dont know why? maybe because it was quite late afternoon that time when we stayed on this island.

One thing Ate Beth told us when were here is we have to snorkel and go swimming on this area. Because of its shallow coral reefs and different species of fish, of course always present is nemo....^_^.

All of us go on snorkeling upon boarding off our boat, because it's kind a late and the time is not actually on our side that time. But were really lucky to have a bit snorkeling opportunity.

Reasons Why to Visit Cadlao Island: 

Largest Island in El Nido - This island has a land area of around 10.06 sqr mters, making its the largest island in El Nido. Visitors will have the chance to visit and explore its entire island that is composed of white sand beaches, towering marble cliffs, mangrove areas with lush forest.

Highest Limestone Peak in El Nido - This isle boasts because of its highest peak that is towering about 609 MASL, the peak stands taller than other land features in El Nido's Bay. If you will have the chance to go on top of it. An amazing view could awaits you, seeing all the other island in El Nido, that surrounds by blue seawaters.

Undersea Wonders of Cadlao Lagoon - There were numbers of hidden lagoons in the island that will amaze us visitors. One of this is Cadlao Lagoon, an ideal location for snorkeling, picturestique limestone walls and formations and lush corals. Sad to say we missed out this lagoon....huhuhuhuhu....

Makaamo Lagoon - One of the place in Cadlao Island, that is most recommended to be seen. Specially when it is SUNSET. A saltwater lagoon that nortures and serves a nesting area of some tropical birds that can be found in El Nido. Ringed by mangroves and better to be visited when sunrise or sunset due to the feeding time of birds on its lagoon. Again we missed this out of our plan....huhuhuhu......

White Sand Beaches - Cadlao Island has a number of featured white sand beaches that are really ideal for swimmers, snorkelers, divers and of course sunbathers. Cadlao Island is consists of four major tourist spots starts with Bocal Point, Sabang Beach, Paradise eBeach and Natnat Beach, all of this island offers gradually sloping sea floor that is safe for novice swimmers like us trippers that time. Were lucky to visit 2 of its island, Bukal and Natnat, personally i hope the next time ill be visiting El Nido, i could visit all of the places that i've missed out in this island....^_^.

Nature Tripping and its Shallow Coral Spots - A visit on this island is one of a kind experience. As they will encounter its marine ecosystem together with its shallow coral gardens that has schools of colorful fish. Added to that the experience of lush forest via its nature trail that leads to the fascinating inland lagoon.

Wow, at last i'm done on my story telling of our 2 days of Island Hopping in Bacuit Bay of El Nido. Truly it was one remarkable experience that i will really really treasure in my entire life. An experience that is not all of us has the chance to do it. But if i will be given a chance to do it and visit this islands, beaches and its nature.....why not....^_^....lalo na kung libre.....^_^....calling all sponsors....lalo na un weekend getaway show....^_^.
