Nacpan Beach, El Nido

(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ 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.

  • Amazing Beach, and if you want to get a little out of the noise should walk a little to the left. The water is clear. The best way to reach the beach is to rent a scooter and put yourself on the path. Should take algio to eat because when we tried to have lunch in the restaurants of the beach waiting for over 2 and a half hours. On the first day pays a fee to.-access to the beach, the second time the rate drops 50% and in the third admission is free.
