In our previous post about Island Hopping in El Nido, we already portrayed the incredible beauty of the island of Palawan and its stunning beaches. Having done that we decided to have a look at the beaches that are located on the island itself and discovered Nacpan Beach - an amazing, long-stretched white sand beach just north of the town of El Nido. Here we will provide you with some insights on our visit there.
How to get to Nacpan Beach
Nacpan Beach can be reached either by boat (usually part of a tour) or by motorcycle or tricycle. The tour that brings you here is the Tour E where you will see different inland beaches and waterfalls. You can book this tour through the most agencies or hotels in the town of El Nido.
Alternatively, you can rent a motorcycle (around 800 Pesos per day) or get a tricycle to bring you to Nacpan Beach. You can find tricycles all around El Nido - the driver will bring you all the way directly to Nacpan Beach. The ride takes around 45 minutes to 1 hour and will take you across some pretty bumpy dirt roads, so be prepared! A round trip will cost you around 1000 Pesos (roughly €20).
When you enter you will have to register at a small counter and pay an entrance fee (around 50 Pesos per person).
The first impressions, once we arrived at the beach, were incredible. The sand is very fine and white and stretches for kilometers, hugging the clear blue water. There are lots of spaces to rest in the shadow and also a small restaurant at the entrance area where you can enjoy a snack and some drinks.
