Hidden under the canopy of large rock formations and exquisite greenery is Entalula Island, a private destination in El Nido that boasts of stunning views and endless opportunities to explore.
After the Fernandez family sold the island to the Ayala’s, the island — save a small portion on the eastern part of the area — has become a private destination exclusive only to guests of the El Nido Resort. This island is one of El Nido’s most accessible destination — only an hour away from El Nido and 25-minutes away from Miniloc Island — where tourists can enjoy the island’s 250-metre stretch of powder white sand and breathtaking coral reefs. Like El Nido’s other destinations, Entalula Island is nothing short of panoramic — the pristine blue waters set against the towering marble black caves make for a perfect postcard photo.
Entalula Island is located an hour away from El Nido, and 15 minutes away from Miniloc Island.
