Best Thing To See & Do in El Nido

  • EL Nido Island Hopping

    Aside from Calitang and Nacpan beaches, there are other white sandy beaches surrounding the town of El Nido. El Nido is really no ordinary place, it is a cluster of 45 small islands on the northern tip of the mainland province of Palawan. These islands lie across Bacuit Bay (and beyond) and El Nido Bay which can be a great adventure for an exhilarating island hopping.

  • Hiking in Taraw Peak

    The Taraw Peak (or Taraw Cliff) stands more than 230 meters above sea level (754 ft.) and is located in Brgy. Buena Suerte, El Nido. It is a limestone cliff right at the heart of downtown El Nido which has the awesome view of the Bacuit Bay on the north while you are on top of the cliff. Conquering the peak of Taraw Cliff usually takes 2 hours back and forth.

  • Kayaking in the Big and Small Lagoons

    These lagoons have just some of the most spectacular views you can have in El Nido.  The big and small lagoons can be found in Miniloc Island less than 8km from the mainland town of El Nido and across Bacuit Bay. The Small Lagoon sits majestically on the northern end of Miniloc Island and made up of an open top cathedral of limestone.

  • Spending the day at the Las Cabanas Beach

    One of the finest beaches in El Nido which can be reached by land is the Las Cabanas Beach. This beach still remains unspoiled and untouched up to this day. In fact, there are a few resorts on its shore but has some restaurants where you can have a sumptuous meal or a beer. At this beach, you can have undisturbed diving, snorkeling, swimming, and camping if you have your gears. The beach is less than 4km south of Taraw Peak. Also, you can have the majestic view of Miniloc (where the famous big and small lagoons are found), Shimizu, and the Inatula Islands west of Las Cabanas Beach across Bacuit Bay.

  • Visiting Nacpan Beach

    While in El Nido, try to visit the Nacpan Beach which is around 15km north of El Nido Airport. The Nacpan Beach is a 4-km stretch of powdery white sand with crystal blue waters and is just a 45-minute ride from downtown El Nido. The site is a terrific hideaway for those who are seeking pristine waters with tranquil environment laced with natural wonders.

About El Nido

El Nido, Palawan is perhaps one of God’s greatest gifts to the Filipino people in terms of natural beauty, stunning landform, breathtaking bodies of water, ecosystem, and exceptional beaches. This heavenly destination in Palawan has been named by CNNGo as the Best Beach and Island destination in the Philippines in 2012, while Condé Nast ranked El Nido number 4 in its “20 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World” in 2018.

Some of the sought-after beaches in El Nido are the Nacpan and Calitang Beaches (also known as the Twin Beach). The Nacpan Beach is a 4-km stretch of powdery white sand with crystal blue waters and is just a 45-minute ride from downtown El Nido. The site is a terrific hideaway for those who are seeking pristine waters with tranquil environment laced with natural wonders.

How to get there?

There are various ways of getting to El Nido and there are lots of routes that are cheaper but will take you a whole day of your time. That’s right, while other routes are quicker, you will also pay a hefty price. We will show you here the way to El Nido from Manila via sea or by plane.

From Manila To Puerto Princesa

Before you can get to El Nido, you have to get to Puerto Princesa (the capital city of Palawan) first and foremost (although there is a direct flight from Manila to El Nido, we will discuss it later). The two main airlines that offer daily flights from Manila to Puerto Princesa (and vice versa) are Cebu Pacific and PAL (Philippine Airlines).

Once you arrived at the Puerto Princesa Airport, you have to take a van (usually UV Express or AC Tourist Vans) from the airport to El Nido. El Nido is about 246km northeast of Puerto Princesa by land and the trip usually takes 4 to 5 hours. A van ride may cost you between P600 to P700 per person. On your way to El Nido from Puerto Princesa, you will pass by the towns of Roxas, San Vicente, and Taytay, among others. The spectacular natural views on this route are truly breathless and inspiring!

When you reach the Corong-Corong bus terminal in El Nido, you may take a 5-minute tricycle ride from the terminal to El Nido town proper to take you to your hotel or guesthouse.

From Manila to El Nido

Traveling by sea is one of the most thrilling adventures one could have. Going to El Nido from Manila via a ferry is really a great experience and cheaper than an airplane, although the trip may take you two days before you arrive in El Nido. Anyways, you can book a ticket with 2GO Travel in Pier 4 Tondo, Manila via Coron, Palawan.

When you arrive in Coron, you should take another ticket from a local ferry company and take a boat ride to El Nido. You might spend the night in Coron if you missed the last trip to El Nido. The boat ride may cost you P1,700/person and takes about 8 hours of sea travel.

Direct flight from Manila to El Nido

There are direct flights from Manila to El Nido, but this may cost you from P7,000 to P9,000 per head (one way). This price range is only offered by Swift Air (formerly the Island Transvoyageur, Inc. or ITI) which caters for special flights from Manila to El Nido (and vice versa).

Although more expensive than other means, chartering a Swift Air is the quickest of them all which will take you only about a one-in-a-half-hour of flight time from Manila to El Nido and the shortest land travel from the airport to El Nido. If you have more cash to spare but has limited time, a Swift Air flight might be the solution.

More travel tips: If you don’t want to travel in a van from Puerto Princesa to El Nido, you can take a public bus from the terminal. This may cost you only P400 per person but travel time might take a little longer (8 to 9 hours). There is also car rental available in Puerto Princesa which will cost you around P3,000 per day.
