Nacpan Beach, El Nido

4.5
#7 of 14 in Beaches in El Nido
Nacpan Beach features a long stretch of golden sand and calm turquoise waters. The beach is not easily accessible, so it's best to come with an experienced local tricycle driver, who will take you safely across the old dirt road. Even though it's never crowded, the beach boasts some basic facilities, a couple of stores, and a volleyball court. Apart from swimming and swaying in a hammock, you can try some kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. For panoramic views over the beach, climb a small hill to reach a lookout point.

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.
