How to Get There
The Big Lagoon is a place that is located in El Nido and it is at a very close distance from the capital city of Philippines, which is Puerto Princesa. It is at about a distance of 238 kilometers away from the capital- this is to give you a better idea of the distance that you will need to cross to get yourself out of the hustle-bustle of the busy municipality and instantly land onto one of the most beautiful places in the world. To reach there, you can take any forms of land transportation services like a bus, or a car, or even a truck or a bike with which you can definitely enjoy the up-and-down slides of the streets and the beautiful sceneries that surround you even more when you are all out travelling in the open. Once you get there, you can choose to walk on the white sand of the beaches of the lagoon for some time and then jump into the tranquil and calm turquoise-green of the water of the lagoon. Whatever you do, (and if you don’t do anything there), it is guaranteed that you will have the best of your time in the Big Lagoon of Palawan.
What to See in Big Lagoon
What is there not to see in Big Lagoon, should be the actual question. The beautiful, dark and deep forests surrounding the whites of the beaches; the clear, almost shockingly blue tranquil water of the sea; and even the pure white gold of the beaches are worth staring at. You will never run of things to explore in the Big Lagoon area. There is a vast array of wildlife present in Big Lagoon- the unique insects and crabs that seem to rule those lands, the extraordinary greenery surrounding the islands, the overpowering blueness of the sky and the water, the ancient limestone cliffs standing on guard on the island, the peaceful and calm atmosphere of the Lagoon all work together to transfer the visitor to a heavenly space of mind- one such that he feels enchanted by the beauty of the blue, the mysteries of the dark forests and the freshness of the leaves and sounds in the surroundings. You will be able to conduct a thoroughly unique nature study that will be, hands down, filled with all sorts of gems in your collection of wildlife studies because the Palawan has a lot of species of insects, plants, fruits, etc that are truly unique to the Palawan islands. So even if you are not a nature lover, give nature a study here in Big Lagoon, and you will surely find yourself transformed into a being with a deep-set core of love and gratitude towards nature and all the beauty that it holds for us to explore.
What to Do in Big Lagoon
There is not much that you would even want to do in a place where you can relax to your heart’s content and not have to care about anything else in the world. Delve into the pleasures of the nature; study the nature of the plants and the trees (and trust me, it’s not boring when you do it in Big Lagoon), study the marine life, gape at the magnificent orchid-lined walls of limestone standing hundreds of feet above you and explore the mystery-filled caves of the lagoon. Swim in the cool water of the lagoon and set out on a boat and do some scuba-diving or snorkeling to find out the beauties that lie underwater, hidden from all of our views and glances; and not to forget, however, to savor the richness of the cuisine of the island-ish food of the people of Big Lagoon and Palawan.
