Nacpan Beach, El Nido

4.4
#1 of 16 in Beaches in El Nido
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.

  • It’s a 1-hr drive from El Nido town. The beach is still clean and pristine with less tourists. Driving on the highway is not difficult because it’s paved, however it gets bumpy and dusty once you enter road going to the beach so you need to drive carefully. It’s the best place to lay on the beach and swim in the crystal clear water.
  • I would definitely recommend renting a scooter and making your way to this hidden beach. There were no crowds and the beach was very clean. The water was gorgeous too.
  • Nice white sand & deep blue clear water sea. Come the earliest possible in order to enjoy the beach for yourself. It tends to get busy in the afternoon. Only downside is the road, the little path to get to the beach is a nightmare (specially if it was raining). But feasible to get here by motorbike if you have some experience.
  • One of the best beach ive been to. Ive been to most beach here in the Philippines and in the Caribbean. But this beach is superb. A must visit when you are in El Nido.
  • Beautiful long white sand beach. A few basic accommodations and food options, not much of a vegetarian choice. Pretty remote
