Snake Island (Vigan Island), El Nido

4.4
#3 of 18 in Nature in El Nido
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.

  • You’ll appreciate to see snake island if it is on a low tide - you can see the sandbar well. You can go down and even go top the hill to take a good photo of the sandbar.  more »
  • I went by Island Hopping B. Island hopping is popular for A and C, but if you don't have time, you should join either one and go b as well. Beautiful beachwith Philippine white sand. It's a great place to relax.

  • 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..
