“Perfect little waves”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

I like the little waves that gives you a friendly splash. The current is ok. The locals are friendly. Not too crowded. But the journey towards here especially rainy seasons, is not a joke.

“Paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Write white sand beach, geat water.
You can swim to the island in front and climb the hill (there is a "stair") where there are great views of the area.
Nature and Palawan at its best
Lunch was good.
Perfect for walking and swimming, if there to see the sunset then head to the left side of the beach where the junction with other beach is and the fishermen boats are

Only issue is the road to arrive here, which is hell for an inexperienced motorbike rider like me but else this beach is paradise!

“Long lonely stretch of beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Get here before the hotels, bars, shops, rubbish effluent etc. does. At the moment it is almost unspoiled (there is one large private home and a couple of pop-up bars selling food, beers, coconuts etc.). The sea is crystal clear and the beach goes on for ever - if you carry on walking past the bars, there are very few people as they tend to congregate next to the bars. Right at the top of the beach you can be all alone - look back and think to yourself: this is what El Nido was like only 10 years ago. Soak it up while you can!!!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Any idea about what's paradise ? No ? Just go there............ Amazing beach lost in Northern Palawan. You can go there by bike or tricycle (around 45 minutes from El Nido).
A magical place highly recommended to all the people who go to Palawan.
