Awesome surprising place

It is indeed hidden! When you think you've seen it, you walk/swim a bit more and WOW! An amazing place, very very beautiful. I'd recommend that you go with some sort of underwater... read more

make sure that if you like to go down from your boat , you must be wearing those special type of shoes to protect your feet, because there's a lot of pointy rock/corals and it might hurt you.

It is indeed hidden! When you think you've seen it, you walk/swim a bit more and WOW! An amazing place, very very beautiful. I'd recommend that you go with some sort of underwater rubber shoes, if you can (those part of diving suits would do), as you have to walk somewhat and the rocks hurt the feet. Slippers WILL make...

Hidden is like a small private beach club. The sands on this island is more fine compsred to oher island the the beach is to shallow and rocky you need to wear seaboots. You can actually finish your tour in 30 mins since the area is to small

Ugh, arrived in Hidden beach with multiple boats already parked. You can choose which side of the beach you want to stay, there's one side of the beach where most of the tourists swim :). Clear water, trees and rocks definitely must include in your island hopping tour. We're suppose to have lunch here, but waves started going crazy so... More

The Hidden Beach is beautiful. For me, however, the highlight is the secret hole that some people (good swimmers) go through to go back to the main beach. It is quite dangerous to exit from this hole, but for a quick minute, it feels exciting to try go through it in order to exit out to sea near to where... More

Glad to wade in shallow waters and see different fishes swimming even without a snorkel. The way towards it could be challenging but guides were helpful.

Sooooooo worth the trip❤️ A day later after typhoon Karen, the sun came out and the sea was bearable. Took the tour C which is seldom offered due to weather issues. Going in was tough as you have to swim to go in. Current was strong and rocky so wear your life vest before going in to the ocean. I... More

You don't know that there is a beach inside the island. Very romantic place. Clear waters and certainly worth a visit :)
