“Beautiful beach, just 40 minutes away from El Nido. You can can rent a scooter and drive up, take a tricycle for about 700-1000 pesos round trip, grab a shuttle van with Discovery El Nido (shuttle run every hour, book your tickets directly with them, 600p/per person round trip). Hang out and grab some drinks at Mad Monkey hostel or check out the growing food scene there. Watch out for the niknik sand flies while you're there. I'd put on some OFF bug repellant as many people can have allergic reactions to their bites and can last up to a few months. The bites are small but the bite swelling can be severe. Just be prepared!”

“Well it's in the name so it must be a place to watch the sunset! Make sure to arrive early if you want a good spot, this place is a bit small but really chill and there's often a DJ playing. A few spanish guys on this joint so its all about the tapas as far as their food goes!”

“Great beach just 20 minutes pass Nacpan. Rent a scooter and head up there for the day, great place to chill, sun tan, get away from the crowds. Check out the little resort on the end with white cabins. Say hi to the owners Max and Alma and their 2 little boys and have some lunch there. They've got games, volley ball, hammocks.. ”
