Heaven on Earth

The coastal region of El Nido includes a mainland area of jungle, beaches, and cliffs, as well as 45 limestone islands and islets. Trips to El Nido traditionally include a boat tour through the archipelago, with island-hopping expeditions revealing a number of remote beaches hidden between rocky outcrops. Though the waters surrounding the mainland beaches may be a little too dirty to be inviting, the water further offshore retains a crisp clarity, making diving in the coral reefs a particularly enjoyable experience.
