Nacpan Beach, El Nido

4.5
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.

  • Beach with great waves of beautiful water crystal clear sand charming private location waves tend to be treacherous on the beach to watch out for and with respect to their approach can do a lot of trouble with access to the beach

  • Absolutely beautiful beach when the sea is calm! Ate good seafood directly on the beach. About 1 hr by tricycle from El Nino with the last 15 mins on a bumpy road. Scooters must use caution especially...  more »

  • One of the best beaches ever. Spent a couple of days here and never wanted to leave. The sand is in the purest form. Good waves to go into the water. Highly recommended even though it is a bit far from the main town of El Nido.
  • A great beach with less crowd and the waters are shallow. I also has twin beaches on either side. Watching sunset here is so relaxing.
  • I went here by myself renting a scooter after reading all that bad reviews about the hard muddy road etc... I can tell you honestly is not that bad. The road is easy and in good condition to go. Don't hesitate to go there. It was a rainy morning and I just found a small pool of water. Great beach, not so touristy in some parts, and take your insect repellent and food&drinks. Some Bars around there too.
  • You have to pay entrance fee to get in and have your eco papers at hand. The beach isn't that clean as expected (because you pay for it?). It's not that crowded but then again it is. The road to the beach is not very well maintained but it's not that bad. Try taking the road from east to west (then you know what's bad 😂). The water is so blue and beautiful. The sand white and truly a bounty beach.
  • Really long beach, perfect for a good walk or a run. The sand is soft, the water is warm. It was a very windy and cloudy day when I went there, so the pictures do this place no justice. There are about 4 different places to eat. My favorite was the Mad Monkey. 🐒 It's away from the other restaurants, on the left. The road to get there is really rustic, so unless you are feeling very confident about driving a scooter, then I would advise to go with a van of tuktuk.
