I was saying in El Nido and rented a scooter (takes about 30 - 45 minutes ride out to Nacpan). Some areas are a little bumpy but just breath and it'll be ok (hahaha!, just recently learned how to drive a scooter). There's a little...More

The beach is nice but not nearly 'the best beach in the Philippines'! Feels incredibly touristy and no locals in sight. Getting there can either be seen as a real adventure or an absolute nightmare since the track seems to more resemble a muddy lake...More

I rented a Motor Bike and took the 30 minute ride out to Nacpan. The ride was bumpy but you traveled through some small towns that really give you a glimpse into the life in Palawan. The beach was stunning. We spent the entire day...More

If you’re after a relaxing retreat for a day, this is your spot. You practically have the beach to yourself (although not ideal if you want to socialise). Bit of a mission to get there if it’s been raining - mud track. Don’t ride if...More

This is really a beautiful serene beach. The sand is white, texture as fine as flour, no pebbles or corals that you could step on. The water is as blue as the sky. There’s lounge chairs you can sit on and enjoy the scenery and...More

We arrived at Nacpan beach after 45 minutes at exactly 1.30 in the afternoon. We found one good Samaritan trycicle driver and he agreed to bring us to Nacpan then to Las Cabanas before 5pm to witness its amazing sunset for only P1100 (it was...More

After a 40 minute tricycle (haggled rate: Php400) travel on partly paved and partly rocky roads, we arrived at the best beach in the Philippines, if not the world. Beach was wide, clean. Sand was fine. Surf not strong - perfect for a swim. Heard...More

Really great beach, beautiful surroundings and friendly loacals. There is food and swimming is a lot of fun in the sometimes sizeable waves.

I didn't see any security guards anywhere; however, someone said the beach had only recently been opened to the public... That was around the end of September 2017. The beach was all but empty and I walk the length without... 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!
