Some people said that El nido is the best place in the Philippines. With this strong statement from others , this is one of the place that Filipino dream of. I packed my bags and explre the most popular place in Palawan- EL NIDO.



El Nido, officially the Municipality of El Nido, is a 1st class municipality in the province of PalawanPhilippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 41,606 people.

It is about 420 kilometres (260 mi) south-west of Manila, and about 238 kilometres (148 mi) north-east of Puerto Princesa, Palawan’s capital. A managed resource protected area, it is known for its white-sand beaches, coral reefs, limestone cliffs and as the gateway to the Bacuit archipelago.

El Nido is currently ranked #4 in Condé Nast Traveler‘s list of “20 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World.”  CNNGo has called it the Best Beach and Island destination in the Philippines for its “extraordinary natural splendor and ecosystem.
