This beach is really nice actually considering the amount of traffic it gets. I would recommend staying here instead of El Nido town... it’s not as crowded and you get the beach on your doorstep. Food was not that expensive considering you’re stuck there. A...More

This beach is a great and a nice escape from El Nido. The beach gets pretty busy but it's big so it't not the end of the world. The sun loungers costs 400 pesos for an entire day, super cheap! 2 beers are 100 pesos...More

This is another one of Palawan’s white sand beaches with amazing views and big waves that you could try and ride. But like for everything in Philippines you have to pay an entry fee.

Grea beach, worth the trip from El Nido. If you can stay there one night or two. If you walk a bit further you can have the beach just for yourself and avoid the crowd near the threecycle's pick up point

Really nice white sand beach, 40-60 minutes from the main part of El-Nido but worth it for the crystal clear water and white sand beach.

I have mix feelings about this beach. Maybe because I had high expectations. Going to this beach took us 45 minutes via tricycle and it was a bumpy ride since the road on some parts was still not cemented. I was expecting white sand beach...More

The drive out to Nacpan beach is horrendous but absolutely well worth it! Enjoy afforadable food and beverage at the Mad Monkey Hostel at the far left end of the beach, before enjoying the beautiful sunset views. To the far right end of the beach...More

There are a few caves in El Nido. Some of them are out amongst the islands & some are inland. There's plenty of scuba diving sites. Some completely unexplored. Parasailing no. A bit too commercial right now, but Boracay you... More

Lots of drone video clips from Nacpan, Duli & Las Cabanas on youtube. You can fly them without legal worries. This is not land of the free where you can't do anything. You can do everything here (within reason) Enjoy!
