El nido Lagen

Lagen Island is tucked in a cove set among lush tropical forest, limestone walls and a crystal clear lagoon. Many attractions are accessible from the island including natural wonders such as Cudugnon Cave and Snake Island. It is one of the beautiful islands that comprise El Nido, which is often referred to as the "Philippines' Last Frontier," and one of the top tourist destinations in the Philippines.
