    Hello guys. Great post. I’m taking it as an inspiration for our trip in 2 weeks 🙂 we’ll be 4 nights in El Nido area and I was originally thinking of staying by Las Cabanas beach (North of El Nido) and do one day trip to Nacpan. But maybe Nacpan is the right place for all 4 nights. Did you say you can do Island Hopping tours A,B,C,D directly from Nacpan too? Thank you 🙂

      I can’t remember which Tours we did but I think it was A & C. I can tell you that we went to Hidden Beach, Secret Beach, Talisay Beach, Big Lagoon, Small Lagoon and Carlao Island.

    Thank you for this post! I have been trying to formulate a trip to the Phillippines in the next year or so. I am not much of a beach person because how crowded they seem to be all the time, but this just looks perfect for both me and my personality! Brava!

    I had spent considerable time in Nacpan as well as the rest of the beaches of El Nido. Correct me if I am wrong Nacpan is a part of El Nido and that’s what the official site says too. So you really can’t skip El Nido. I mean imagine you ask someone to skip Philippines and do Manila. That’s not possible. Also, El Nido has some really beautiful and less crowded beaches, so why would anyone skip El Nido at all? Sorry but I thought your post is a bit misleading.

      Hi Archana, you are right in that Nacpan is part of the entire El Nido area but in our article, we were intending to refer to the main area/town which everyone flocks too. Since this hasn’t been communicated clearly enough, I have updated the post to refer to the main town. Furthermore, we spoke to many locals in Nacpan Beach and all refer to the main town as El Nido as refer to NB as Nacpan so even they distinguish it despite it being a part of the greater area. Sorry that you felt it was misleading as that’s obviously not our intention. As we said in the article, we are offering a different and quiet place outside of the main tourist area that people flock to for some peace and solitude. Happy travels.

    I too prefer quiet beaches so Nacpan Beach would be preferable to El Nido. The fact that Nacpan is a long beach would be perfect for an early morning run, or even better, a midday run in the heat for a better workout! The sunset photo you shared on Instagram is so beautiful, if I went I would love to see this sunset.

      Absolutely James. Sounds like it’s the perfect place for you. We were sweating profusely towards the end of our rubbish pick up (around 9am) so I’m not sure I’d survive a midday run but more power to you!

    I really want to go to Nacpan instead of El Nido . I don’t know if it’s your diction of the images, but the though of me on the beach excites me. I’d be going in my best traveling mode – sole traveling. Can’t wait for this.

    My favorite place in the world! <3 I was raised and lived in the Philippines my whole life and whenever I travel, there's always something that amazes me in my country. Palawan is such a paradise 🙂

      I really fell in love with the Philippines so I get where you’re coming from. There’s so much to see and explore, I’m not sure we’d ever have enough time.

    WOW! You’re pictures are amazing of Nacpan Beach. I’m glad you decided to write a blog post on a place that doesn’t attract as much tourists but still as beautiful or probably even more beautiful than El Nido. Also I love the fact that you guys used recycled plastic to turn into something so beautiful such as planting new plants. I’m glad you guys got to enjoy your trip, I sure did enjoy reading about it and also looking at the pictures you took.

    Wow the beach looks amazing. I think a less touristy option is always the best way to go. What a great place to go to.

    Nacpan beach is really so beautiful and stunning. It should be in the one of the most beautiful beach list. Island hopping tours are worth to do. Epic sunset is surreal. Lovely and informative post on offbeat destination.
