We went on a combined Tour A & Tour B through Outpost Hostel. This was one of the sites and we were lucky enough for the tide to be down to allow us to walk along the spit. Highly recommend this!

I think this is a must when you visit El Nido. It is a really cool island, but the sad thing is that some idiot has put up a small shop in the middle. It ruins the good feeling about this place
