An hour from El Nido town to the beach via a trike, I would recommend hiring your own motorcycle instead. The beach itself is absolutely lovely; long and white. Plenty of space to find your own 'private' area. The stretch of shore offers a nice...More

I've been to a lot of beaches here in the Philippines, my home country. But this one is truly amazing. It suits my taste. It has a laid back kind of environment and there's few to none establishments that built around here that makes this...More

My experience of Nacpan Beach could have been better if the tricycle driver hadn't conned us into getting on his tricycle all the way there. It was a 45 minute ride of back ache, tricycle breakdown and push starts. We would partly blame ourselves for...More

Stunningly beautiful long beach to stroll and swim. Warm and relaxing water, very isolated and rustic place. Rainy season makes the roads tough to navigate using scooters. Best time to rent a van (4,500 pesos/ U$90) that will take you to Nacpan, plus Lio Beach...More

We went in June, start of the rainy (and low) season, the roads to Nacpan were deadly to ride on a scooter bike. As someone previously suggested, it's best to rent a jeep/van in the rainy season. The views on the road there were amazing...More

One of my El Nido highlights..the most amazing beach and water I have ever seen, but the best attraction is its not so commercialized, you still find native huts selling refreshments etc, not huge hotels and crowded shops everywhere....

Nacpan was pretty crowded when we went due to all tours being cancelled- typhoon warning. It rained the night before so the roads were definitely horrendous. I don't suggest coming here unless if you have a jeep/van especially with the rains. Due to the weather,...More

Amazing Long Beach with stretches and stretches of sand! If it's a bad day out at sea and the boatmen don't let you go out for an island hopping tour, just take a tricycle here for about 700 php round trip and you will not...More

I love this beach. It's really hot but the water is refreshing and it's just gorgeous. You can get something to eat and drink at any of the bars along the beach. It can be pretty windy sometimes so you need to use the hammocks...More

It's a great place to watch the sunset, but leave before it gets completely dark as the road leading to the beach is extremely rocky so good visibility is advised. If you'd prefer to stay the night there are guest houses and... More
