Heaven on Earth

The coastal region of El Nido includes a mainland area of jungle, beaches, and cliffs, as well as 45 limestone islands and islets.
You'll get in some beach time at Duli Beach and Payong-Payong Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Helicopter Island and Star Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Fort Santa Isabel in Taytay (about 1h 30 min away). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Marimegmeg Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Corong Corong Beach, step off the mainland to explore Pinagbuyutan Island, and choose your vessel at Kraken El Nido.

For maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the El Nido online trip itinerary maker.

Cape Town, South Africa to El Nido is an approximately 30-hour combination of flight and ferry. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of flight and taxi. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Cape Town to El Nido. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Thu) early enough to drive to Puerto Princesa.

City in the Forest

A convenient place to stay when exploring the island, the city of Puerto Princesa sits on the coast in the center of the landmass.
You'll get in some beach time at Sabang Beach and Nagtabon Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Immaculate Conception Cathedral and Papawyan Falls. Get out of town with these interesting Puerto Princesa side-trips: Port Barton (Bigaho Falls & Cacnipa Island). There's still lots to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, contemplate the waterfront views at Babuyan River, take an in-depth tour of Palawan Special Battalion WW2 Memorial Museum, and steep yourself in history at Plaza Cuartel.

For traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Puerto Princesa trip maker site.

Drive from El Nido to Puerto Princesa in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of taxi and bus; or take a bus. In December, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
