Day 1
El Nido itinerary, Nacpan Beach
 80     42     30     0
  Duration: 3 hrs

Where 2 Next : It’s important to note that Nacpan Beach is not easily accessible to the main town unless you take some mode of transportation. Nacpan is one half of the ‘Twin Beaches’ , so you can easily enjoy both glorious places in one trip. Nacpan Beach is about 30 minutes away from El Nido town and one of the most pristine beaches in the area. Hailed as one of the best beaches in the world by Tripadvisor, Nacpan beach is truly a must-see and worth a detour when visiting El Nido.

  Duration: 1.5 hrs

Together with Calitang Beach, Nacpan ranks in the top 10 of the best beaches in Palawan and the world according to TripAdvisor users. The two beaches are now commonly known as the El Nido Twin Beaches, and Calitang Beach is located across the street.

El Nido itinerary, Helicopter Island
 12     17     30     2
  Duration: 1.5 hrs

Helicopter Island is where it’s at. It’s a beautiful spot to stop, chill and take in those classic El Nido views. The beach here is big enough to skip to the end and avoid all the group tours who turn up to the same place, have a five minute look and move on.

Place of Interest
El Nido itinerary, Cadlao Island
 8     16     30     0
  Duration: 6 hrs

There are five types of island tours to choose from — tours A, B, C, D and Z. The famous ones are tours A and C but if you are a party animal, consider doing tour Z. It is a make-or-break-it game during the rainy season in El Nido. The coast guards will decide if it is a yay or a nay before the island tours can proceed. Luckily, I got to do a combined A and B tour and paid only ₱1,500 (including a ₱200 environmental fee). Tours were cancelled for three consecutive days after I did my island tour, so I was so lucky! I was even planning on doing the kayaking tour (D) since Cadlao Island is just near the shore but the wind was just too strong. I did not get the chance as well to trek Taraw Cliff since it was dangerous. I did the canopy walk instead for ₱300.

El Nido itinerary, Small Lagoon
 17     12     30     2
  Duration: 1.5 hrs

The Secret Lagoon was our fourth stop. It is secret because people can only enter through the small opening. But apparently, this gem isn’t so secret anymore because a lot of tourists have already been here. We went to another lagoon after this place. It was the Small Lagoon. It was our last stop and our guide gave us enough time to enjoy this wonderful site. This place is amazing with turquoise-green waters and limestone walls. The lagoon inside is only accessible through a hole with a kayak or by swimming. We rented one for around Php300. The kayak is good for two persons and we used it for an hour. We enjoyed this activity. The tranquil kayaking through the Small Lagoon was the perfect way to end our Tour A.

Place of Interest
El Nido itinerary, Miniloc Island
 18     38     30     1
  Duration: 6 hrs

Situated on the little islands that punctuate Bacuit Bay, in the El Nido region of Palawan island, the Miniloc has 31 air-conditioned, palm-roofed cottages, some on concrete stilts over the water. The Miniloc Island is a great place for families, the youngsters or in fact anyone who wants to feel an exotic location with great diving.

Day 5
El Nido itinerary, Snake Island

  Duration: 6 hrs

Snake Island is also a wonder in itself; you can walk on water from the island to mainland Palwan, stopping for a coconut at the bar that seemingly floats in the middle of the sea. Snake Island is the top thing to do on the El Nido Tour B day trip.
