Trip Planner: Asia / Philippines / Mimaropa / Palawan Province / Palawan Island / El Nido / Snake Island (Vigan Island)
An untouched oasis of sand and sea, Snake Island (Vigan Island) connects to mainland Palawan via a winding sweep of sandbar, appearing daily at low tide. Accessed via boat or foot (during low tide), the island itself is small and blanketed with thick foliage. Surrounded by crystal clear azure ocean, snorkel along the shore, then hike to the top of the island’s viewing platform to see the snaking sandbar in full view. Keep your eyes peeled for monkeys hiding in the mangroves. If walking across the sandbar, make sure you wear water shoes to protect your feet from rockfish.

Snake Island (Vigan Island) reviews
The water is beautiful and the sandbar is cool to walk across. The water level was high so the sandbar was about 2 feet underwater. No biggie, it was still cool to visit. There isn't much to do... more »
We were lucky enough to have this whole place to ourselves - just stunning. Bring a drone if you can more »
Super nice spot with a scenic view. :) It was nice but ididnt enjoy the place much because we are on an island hopping and the boatman told us to go na for another island to visit.
It has the best view point after bit of hike. Sand bar is connecting two islands so one has good view point and another has mangroves all over place . Walk on sand bar is also fun. There is a walkway in mangroves island. We had our lunch here on boat after visiting both the islands. Good place for photography too..
