El Nido

El Nido is home to some of the most stunning beaches in the Philippines.

This is a place for people who really want to get away from it all. Simple lodges fronting the beach have stunning views of limestone cliffs rising from the bay, fishermen doing their jobs, and local children running carefree.

The beautiful coastal town of Taytay used to be the capital of Palawan during the Spanish-colonial years. The fort of Fuerza de Sta. Isabel was built for battle in the 1600s, and named after Queen Isabella of Spain. You’ll also find the biggest freshwater lake in Palawan in Taytay – Lake Manguao.

The allure of El Nido and Taytay is the journey to get to them, and their raw beauty.
