Nacpan Beach, El Nido

(4.5/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Unwind at Nacpan Beach, a secluded beach some 17 km (10.5 mi) north of El Nido. White sand and clear water on both sides of a sandy stretch will be your reward after a drive on a bumpy road. With palm trees providing necessary shade, this clean and quiet beach offers excellent swimming conditions and some basic facilities, including a rustic seafood joint and paddle boat rental office. Take a steep trail and climb a small hill above the beach to get a full view of this secluded gem, with a 360-degree panorama to enjoy. Put Nacpan Beach and other El Nido attractions into our El Nido vacation builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

(until you get used to it after a while) WORTH IT TOO!

  • Perfection - rent a kubo for the day and enjoy one of the gems of Palawan. Use your factor 50 or you may regret it and watch out for falling coconuts. Only downside is stray dogs at every turn and the...  more »
