Located towards the northern end of Palawan Island in the Philippines lies El Nido. A place of enchanting nature, unique geographical formations, and pristine white beaches. Did I mention that it's made up of 45 islands and islets?All of this makes El Nido the ideal hub for travelers with an adventurous spirit and zest for life.
GO KAYAKING IN EL NIDO
The islands surrounding El Nido, Palawan, are just a short boat trip from the mainland, but if you have some time, it's a great idea to go kayaking in the calm waters surrounding El Nido. I stayed at Garden Bay Beach Resort where you are able to walk out of your room, onto the beach and hop into a kayak.
If you keep paddling out from El Nido harbor, for about 45 minutes, and you will reach Bukal Island which is included in the island hopping tour D. The water is crystal clear and the beach secluded and private. It took us a bit longer to reach the island as we had a swim along the way. Actually, we capsized and both ended up in the water! And technically there was only one paddler as I was photographer/sunbather and needed to conserve my energy for the days to come.
If you're looking for the best things to do in El Nido at night, make sure beach camping is on your itinerary. Because who doesn't want to wake up with a front-row view of the sea? As you'd expect, there is no electricity, no showers, and no bathrooms. Be prepared to rough it up for the night, but it's definitely worth it.
SCUBA DIVING IN EL NIDO, PALAWAN
Many people ask me what to do in El Nido, Palawan, and scuba diving tops my list! They say that you should never get your hopes up as you will be left disappointed in the end. However, not having high expectations left me completely and absolutely blown away. Scuba diving in the Philippines is nothing short of spectacular and is one of the best activities in El Nido, Palawan. Having explored only 2 of the 30 dive sites, I can only imagine what else is hidden beneath the waters of El Nido.
VISIT NACPAN BEACH
Nacpan Beach is one of the best beaches in EL Nido. It's a beautiful, long beach lined with coconut trees situated about an hours drive north of El Nido. Over the years, it's popularity has increased and while it is still “untouched” compared to the likes of Las Cabanas Beach, I'm sure there will be many hotels and beach clubs lining the shores in the years to come.
SURFING AT DULI BEACH
I'm not a fan of crowds, and I avoid them as best I can! And this is why Duli Beach is one of my favorite beaches in El Nido. It's a far quieter and less popular getaway than its neighbor Nacpan Beach. Once you reach the soft, sandy shores, there's an open stretch of white beach, sea and palm trees with very few people. For surfers, Duli beach offers a fun beach break and is ideal for a longboard surfing session.
CLIMBING TARAW CLIFF
Taraw Cliff is a sharp and jagged limestone cliff that overlooks El Nido. Climbing to the peak is one of the best things to do in Palawan. Whilst the view from the top is incredible, the hike is a dangerous one and it is recommended that you have a guide with you. Yes, people have injured themselves and even died whilst attempting to reach the peak.
