    The sand is pristine and the colours wonderful of the sea and lush green foliage of the coconut trees. However, on our visit the red flags were out and so one was allowed only to paddle basically to stay safe. A pity, I’m not sure how frequently bathing is restricted and how to check this out on line.
    You normally get here by trike which is fine but the road is partially a track only so be warned you’ll be in for a bumpy ride.

    It's like a big swimming pool! A bit difficult to get in but it's so worth it! I am glad that there are people there who are monitoring the number of people inside the lagoon to avoid overcrowding and because of this you can't stay as long as you want,

    Pristine, beautiful, clean, serene... exotic birds residing here, monitor lizards roaming about.. all the pampering provided by El Nido resorts, snack, refreshments, fruits, even booze with happy hour rates... perfect indeed

    Tuck away in all the nooks and crannies of these little islands. You need an expert to find these unless you have your own boat to cruise around. There's just one monolithic limestone creating this beauty. Our guide took us to the left of this limestone and went through an opening where the beach was. Not many people were there when we arrived, but we were in awe that this place existed. Nice place to have lunch or relax for a few before the next group comes in. Amazing photo ops here and there's a little secret. There is one soft coral that houses two clown fish! We were lucky enough to see them and enjoy their company for a bit. I'm sure they didn't really welcomed us, but we made ourselves at home hehe. There was a territorial damsel near them that was really shooing us away. He attacked my ankle. It didn't hurt, but when you get attacked by anything underwater, it sure gives you the spooks!

    Our favourite beach in El Nido but we only did Nacpan Beach & Small Lagoon while we were here and have to come back and do a bigger day trip by boat one day of all the other options.

    This review is for the Sunset at Las Cabanas - at the very end of the strip.

    They had a perfect view of the sunset settling by the mountain islands (or rock mountains I am not quite sure) and the sea. It was a perfect place to have some quiet dinner date or relaxed hang out with your friends. Unfortunately, it was cloudy during our visit so we didn’t get to take a photo of the actual sunset.

    For the service, I have no complains. They are very attentive, very friendly, and very quick. They even offered taking our picture by the beach since they noticed that my partner and I are struggling to take good selfies.

    For the food, it was pretty decent. We ordered (i forgot the official name but here is the closest i can compare it with) lechon kawali with mexican rice and patatas bravas. For the drinks - beer (corona) and mango shake. I wouldn’t say it was top quality but it’s not bad as well.

    Will definitely come back for a great overall experience!

    Floods of tourists make you think how come it is named a secret lagoon. Be wary of expectation vs reality issues. Be wary of itchy feels post swimming since planktons and jelly fishes are within your path. Before , entry entails that you are a guest of the exclusive beach resorts like Lagen and Miniloc. Now it is open season for literally everyone.,

    The drive up to the beach could be a challenge for anyone inexperienced on a scooter. That being said anyone with experience will love the off-road track !
    The beach is simply stunning.
    It’s untouched beauty with little to no development.
    My favourite beach in el nido.

    Overall a beautiful beach, which looks to be meticulously maintained. There are nic-nic (sand fly) notices posted, but noone within our group, whether protected or un-protected, were bitten after relaxing and walking around. The restaurant and spa selection is great, and there are also ATM's available. Most, if not all, edtablishments take GCash as well. The beach is a lovely place to relax and doesn't seem to ever be too crowded. There are also free shuttles that go here from the better hotels in the area.
