Nacpan Beach and Calitang Beach

Nacpan beach was part of my El Nido itinerary. I’ve read amazing reviews from different blogs and saw jaw-dropping beautiful and stunning photos of this unspoiled beach. It was even tagged as ‘The World’s Most Beautiful Beach.’ With that, I made sure that we will be able to maximize our 5-day trip to El Nido, Palawan by capping it off with a side trip to Nacpan beach.

I’ve decided to just leave our parents alone on our last day so they can have their own ‘me’ time, so it was just me and my sister. Few days before Nacpan beach happened, we asked several tricycle drivers how much would it cost to rent them for the whole day to drive and wait for us at the Nacpan beach? We’ve closed a pretty good deal from a local. We pay him P1000 and he will bring us at Nacpan Twin Beach and Las Cabanas Beach. I know it still sounds pricey but trust me, P1000 is enough to pay for the entire damage on the tricycle. Nacpan beach is 30-45 minutes away from El Nido town, if I recall it correctly. And you would know if you are almost there if you are already on the rough road filled with mud, or it was just that day since it’s been pouring the past few days? HAHAHA!!

There were very few people that day and we were very happy about it. The beach was all to ourselves and there are absolutely no photobombs. HAHAHA!! Indeed, life is better at the beach. Processed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 preset

Now I agree with the people. HAHAHAProcessed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 preset

Tips:

  1. It’s cheaper if you and your friends are a group of 4, you may offer the same deal to the local drivers and divide the P1000 by 4. That would only cost P250 each for this experience!
  2. Bring food! We were not able to bring food because we left too early and most stores were closed. Though the mini store offers meals, you will still save a lot if you bring your own.
  3. Bring sunblock and off lotion as there are small insects going uphill.
  4. Bring speakers! We were jamming while enjoying the sand, the beach and the sun.
