Matinloc Island of Palawan

There are lot of wonderful places in the Philippines and Matinloc Island of palawan is one them. You can't escape the wonderful scenery of this perfect island.

Matinloc Island, the longest slim island in El Nido, has a secret beach, which is a pocket of white sand beach at the corner of a sinkhole,that is inaccessible by boat and surrounded by steep rock walls. To reach it, divers must swim underwater through a narrow crevice in a rock wall. At noon, the sun streams in through the opening, allowing a play of light and shadow against its limestone walls.

There is nothing more interesting than visiting a shrine in the middle of sea in El Nido. Hidden by towering karst cliffs on the western coast of Matinloc Island, Matinloc Shrine in El Nido, ‪Palawan‬ was built in 1982 and subsequently abandoned. Tourists are allowed to make a stop here for the view.

Matinloc Shrine is one of the many remarkable attractions to visit when doing Tour C. Matinloc comes from a Cuyunin word matinlo which means beautiful in English. In fact, the beauty of the island is also appreciated from above as it forms a heart when seen in an aerial view.
