El Nido is a small town in the North West of Palawan in the Philippines. The town its self is not much to write home about but that is not why you come here, you come to see the islands just off the coast of Bacuit Bay.
Having visited it is easy to see why this is rated as the Best Beach and Island destination in the Phillippines. What we really liked is it is a bit of a mission to get to…. a 6 hour minivan ride from Puerto Princesa, and as a result is a little less visited and feels more like you have discovered something great when you get there.
Our hotel was just on the edge of town on the waterfront offering a fantastic view for when the sun sets.
