It seems to float, a planet of its own, Lagen Island from a distance

It looked like a planet, with greens and blues and earth but it was floating on the water. The vertical rockface soared into the heavens while ripples from the sea’s currents distorted the almost mirror like reflection. Its thick vegetation covering most of its surface like a carpet of green.

Lagen Island is just beautiful. From a distance. I was staring at it in amazement for a few minutes and I was in awe. From time to time, I break the gaze by triggering the shutter of my camera, never mind if I had already taken several frames. The view was just too perfect that I was afraid that I might not photograph it well.

Awe. That’s what you will definitely experience when you’re in El Nido. It captures your imagination. You feel as if you’re in a dream, a beautiful dream that you would not want to wake up. Its a stunning scenery that just blows you away. And leave you smiling.

Smiling, happy, but still unbelieving that its not a dream.
