    Tag 24: Bacuit-Archipel

    February 1, 2017 on the Philippines

    Nach ein paar ruhigeren Tagen haben wir eine Tour durch die Inselwelt vor El Nido unternommen, den Bacuit-Archipel. 😊
    Auf insgesamt fünf Stopps haben wir weiße Strände, versteckte Lagunen inmitten von bewaldeten Felsinseln und unterirdische Höhlen entdeckt. 😍
    Es war mal wieder wunderschön, fast zu viel, um es alles ordentlich würdigen, aber wunderschön!

    Bacuit Archipelago

    November 15, 2016 on the Philippines

    A day in paradise.

    We went island hopping, kayaking and snorkelling in heaven!

    We felt like we had been transported into a mystical world of fantasyscape jagged limestones and turquoise waters.

    Best day so far... Happy bunnies😃

    Secret beach

    March 3, 2017 on the Philippines

    The beach was even harder to get to than the others, there was a small hole in the rocks above the water that we had to swim through, luckily it was quite big below the water.
    Naturally most of our touring companions did not even attempt it. One guy actually gave his gopro to the guide to take pictures inside, what a waste to come all this way just to let someone else take a picture for you, you might as well sit at home and watch it on discovery channel.

    Anyway we enjoyed the little secluded beach and Isabel even made fun of all the girls we have seen on our travels posing like models in the shallow waves and I caught her on camera, haha.

    We learned through our wonders people in general are scared... or we just were lucky enough that parents gave us the confidence and fearlessness to do things. We snorkel further out , we swim through tiny holes even if there's waves. We lecture (and shout) at stupid uniformed tourists that step on coral. We are not scared and we love to adventure.

    Dive at Twin rock

    March 4, 2017 on the Philippines

    Not the best dive of the day due to the poorer visibility and the fact that we had to swim quite a distance from the boat mooring to the actual reef.

    We saw a couple of scorpion fish which I always love to see. The one actually crawled on the sand which I have never seen before.

    We also saw loads of noodie branches, even two on top of each other, I wonder what they were doing?

    Dive surroundings

    March 4, 2017 on the Philippines

    Today we are exploring the underwater world of El nido a bit further (&deeper). I am baking on the sundeck after our second dive, felt a bit chilly after 26 degree water (this mermaid might "struggle" for real @ future beach destinations).The maximum depth we went on the second dive was 17m, the diversity of colors and coral was immense. We saw a turtle, trumpetfish, angelfish, noody branch, moorish idols, fusiliers, and loads more.

    It is nice and relaxing between the dives, we saw a little bit more of the scenery on the other side of El Nido where Miniloc island is, where one of the prestige resorts are located.

    #nofilter#biglagoon

    March 5, 2017 on the Philippines

    This is an unbelievable place, it is not hard to take a perfect picture in paradise, no filter or enhancing is even necessary, its breathtaking as is. The tranquil turquoise-green waters surround the orchid-lined limestone walls and showcase a kaleidoscope of marine life. Scientists believe that these lagoons were actually caves which abound in these islands. The roofs of these caves must have collapsed millions of years ago, and these lagoons have emerged in their stead.

    Secret lagoon

    March 5, 2017 on the Philippines

    Last stop for the day is a little lagoon thats only accessible through a hole in the cliff wall, I almost did not fit through the hole.

    While its an amazing natural spot, it was too crowded with people for such a small site. We did not spend much time there before we went swimming at a nearby beach to chill and do our "day counter" photo.

    Hidden beach

    March 3, 2017 on the Philippines

    We arrived at a spot with rocky cliffs and no beach in sight, the guide pointed us in the direction of an opening in the rocks and we jumped in to explore. The rocks opened up to a beautiful beach, the beauty of this spot is, its quite a swim to get there and most people are just simply too scared to go see it, so we pretty much had the beach to ourselves apart from the guide and one or two people who got there using their life jackets.

    Kayaking at Small Lagoon

    March 5, 2017 on the Philippines

    Unbelievably beautiful!! We put my kayaking skills to test again- moral of the story it is not my forte. Apparently I row one stroke close and one far -anyway still heaps of fun to do this in the breathtaking green turquoise waters of the Philippines. Roedolf mounted the gopro on a couple of rocks to take some synchronized jump pics. We explored the caves and fled from other tourists to have a bit of the idyllic surroundings to ourselves.

    Small Lagoon

    March 5, 2017 on the Philippines

    The is just have to be one of the most beautiful places on earth.

    Its magical to be surrounded by these perfect cliffs and underneath you are the turquoise waters, that can not be properly captured on a camera.

    I imagine this must be what heaven looks like.
