Hidden Beach, El Nido

4.2
#5 of 19 in Beaches in Palawan Island
Discover a local gem at Hidden Beach, nestled among a scene of limestone cliffs, white sand, and coral reefs. Reach the little bay through the small crack between the rocks, and take your time swimming to the shore as the currents can be strong in the area. Snorkel in the crystal clear water, observing the rich marine life under you, or kick back on the white sand to soak up the sun. Surrounding cliffs will give you a sense of privacy, but plan your visit carefully if you want to avoid crowds.

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.
