Snake island

Isle Philippines, Philippines

An archipelago of interconnected beautiful islands Snake island

Snake Island is part of the El Nido Tour B Group of Islands. And it's the most popular island in the said group. It's been dubbed as Snake Island because of its unique sandbar. The shape of the curving sand bar which the island has is undoubtedly the main reason why this island was called as such. The sandbar is not the only attraction that this place has to offer. The island also has a view deck which provides a 360-degree view of the ocean and its surrounding islands as well. To get to the view deck, you will have to climb up a small mountain. And to get there, you will have to climb a few steps, approximately a hundred steps going up.
