Nacpan Beach, El Nido

4.5
#1 of 18 in Beaches in Palawan Island
Beach Nature / Park
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.

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.
