Trip Planner: Asia / Philippines / Mimaropa / Palawan Province / Palawan Island / El Nido / Matinloc Island
Bask in crystal clear waters and swim to secret white sand beaches at Matinloc Island. Renowned as an area of extraordinary natural splendour, you’ll feel like you’ve found your very own piece of paradise here. Climb to the highest point on the island for incredible views of the surrounding archipelago. If you’re feeling adventurous, make your way to the island's "secret beach." Inaccessible by boat, visitors must swim underwater through a gap in the rock wall to reach the small beach, which is supposedly the very same spot that inspired Alex Garland's famous novel, "The Beach." Use our El Nido itinerary planner to add Matinloc Island and other attractions to your El Nido vacation plans.

The combination of azure water with black sharp rocks of whimsical shape creates a unique impression of visiting this place as part of the tour S. I recommend to everyone!
Aside from its white sand and clear water, this island offers activities like swimming, snorkeling and trekking. Also a nice place for photo shoot📸
After leaving Helicopter island and its beautiful white sand and rocky beach, we will land on Matinloc Shrine. This place used to host a convent and school which are now abandoned and that you can walk around. The island is now surrounded with legends and the word is that it is haunted with a ghost… Just ask and your guide will be happy to tell you more about this uncanny but charming place!
