Named after a Japanese diver who died in an underwater tunnel in this island, Shimizu has long been considered as one of the nice snorkeling sites in El Nido’s Tour A packages.

According to our boatman, there is an underwater tunnel in the side of the Island, i just don’t know if it’s still open for diving because there was a Japanese diver who died in there long time ago.
