El Nido

Beaches Nature Adventure

Heaven on Earth

The coastal region of El Nido includes a mainland area of jungle, beaches, and cliffs, as well as 45 limestone islands and islets. Trips to El Nido traditionally include a boat tour through the archipelago, with island-hopping expeditions revealing a number of remote beaches hidden between rocky outcrops. Though the waters surrounding the mainland beaches may be a little too dirty to be inviting, the water further offshore retains a crisp clarity, making diving in the coral reefs a particularly enjoyable experience.

Where to stay in El Nido

Long since established as a domestic tourist destination, El Nido's growing international reputation has led to a number of eco-tourism and resort-style options popping up in recent years. The main town on the west coast offers the greatest choice, with sprawling luxury resorts, hotels, and guesthouses all enjoying convenient access to the surrounding islands. Staying on one of the islands presents an exciting alternative, although you'll find the choice largely limited to luxury hotels.
