    Long beach around el Nido
    Clean beach with lots of beach bars and restaurants. 100 Pesos for a beach chair for one day. The waves are not that high so we could really enjoy the day there. We took a scooter from El Nido town

    A classic secluded beach
    This is a classic island beach you probably dreamed of. A few miles of nice sand and relatively shallow water, clean, not crowded, with a few restaurants and places to stay. They effectively sacrificed a smaller beach nearby for the boats, fishing and other activities and keep a village a bit away so this beach well taken care of. On the flip side, if you're not satisfied with sand, sun and water and food, there is not much else to do. So it's perfect for a day trip or a short stay, but if you think about an extended stay, you might find it too secluded.

    Fine Stretch of a beach front
    They told me the fine stretch of near white sand stretches at around 4.7kms. Looks nice to me. Good for long walks on a sunny rather humid day. ATV’s , peddlers of goods and several beach goers abound. If you’re lucky it is positioned for a nice sunset view.

    The most beautiful beach in the world.
    Traveling with my parents for the first time, I happened to stumble upon Palawan, an island paradise in the Philippines, online. It's known for having the world's most beautiful sunsets. We've only traveled to Japan and South Korea in the past, so we decided to explore Southeast Asia this time. Indeed, it was stunning and unlike anything I'd ever experienced in Chicago. Experiencing a sunset here is a must in life; it brings unexpected joys.

    A decent beach near El Nido
    Nacpan and twin beach are right next to each other and there are plenty of services here. There are also quite a lot of tourists, and thus the services also stand out from the good restaurants. It is a reasonable distance from El Nido and the road to get there is not the best in the world as there are sandy sections between the paved road. You can easily get there by scooter, and if you're looking for real peace, then drive to Dul right away.

    The Best
    Nicest beach I have ever been to, not including remote islands. 1500ph for round trip from El Nido Town. 500ph for a sunbed for the day. Heaps of food and drink options nearby. Great way to spend a day.

    One of the best beaches
    This beach is located in the north of El Nido and it is about 17km from center. We stayed in coron-coron area, so we drove about 30-35 min to reach the beach by bike. Road is okey, just some part closed to the beach out of asphalt but still drivable. Nacpan Beach is about of four km sand beach with clear water. Perfect for families. There are some restaurants to dine in and connect to wife. Beautiful spot for sunset.

Great beach! Really nice and long and not crowded! Don’t get scared of jelly fishes, they are harmless! Can relex and get lots of sun! Water is clear and refreshing!

Family of 4 adults on 2 scooters

30 min. scooter ride from El Nido was pretty straight forward as the roads and signs were good. Just a dirt track to navigate for the last 500m or so.
20p per bike parking

AT THE BEACH
It was really hot! The beach was absolutely fabulous. The only shade available was under a reed umbrella covering 2 plastic loungers. We sat on them and had to pay 500p per umbrella. No ticket or receipt provided and I wonder where this money went? The sand for the 25m to the water was really hot with most people running out wearing sandals!
THE SEA
Was full of jelly fish - literally swarming with them so we were pretty hesitant as jelly fish in Australia can be pretty dangerous. There were loads of JF on the beach as well - small, transparent with no apparent tails/ stingers. We looked around and there were plenty of others in the water without any issue. It turns out the JF were not stinging or bothering bathers so we entered the water. As it turned out they do sting as the photo of my daughter's stomach shows. It was a bit itchy but a sting never the less.
Would we go again? Probably not as it was a 30 minute ride, the shade cost was extortionate & the JF can sting.
It was beautiful though!

It’s a beach.

If you’re used to beaches. This is one.

I just didn’t see this as a beach worth the chatter about, could just be me.

Poor facilities, crappy drive, the danger of theft seems higher than other spots… I just don’t see why you would come when you have better options closer to El Nido.

There is an amazing beach a little further up the road……
