Photographer's Note

Another view of Helicoptor Island in the gorgeous Bacuit Archipelago, off El Nido, at the top of Palawan Island. The only way in is by boat, and fishermen at El Nido make a living from bringing in tourists to these idyllic deserted bays. Or at least they are deserted until the tourists arrive! This island had some monkeys in the trees but I was more interested in the beach.

When seen from out at sea the island's outline resembles a helicopter.
