Grea beach, worth the trip from El Nido. If you can stay there one night or two. If you walk a bit further you can have the beach just for yourself and avoid the crowd near the threecycle's pick up point

Really nice white sand beach, 40-60 minutes from the main part of El-Nido but worth it for the crystal clear water and white sand beach.

I have mix feelings about this beach. Maybe because I had high expectations. Going to this beach took us 45 minutes via tricycle and it was a bumpy ride since the road on some parts was still not cemented. I was expecting white sand beach...More

The drive out to Nacpan beach is horrendous but absolutely well worth it! Enjoy afforadable food and beverage at the Mad Monkey Hostel at the far left end of the beach, before enjoying the beautiful sunset views. To the far right end of the beach...More

Just go. Empty beautiful beach that is one of the best I’ve ever seen. Go soon before they finish the road and more people starting coming.

Nice beach, but for us it wasn’t the best beach. There are a lot of tourist and a lot of things to do. We prefer the more remote beaches. We went here by motorbike. Because it had rained a little the road to the beach...More

A very pretty beach with beautiful sand, but to be honest I felt it a little over hyped. There wasn't really any atmosphere, which was disappointing. The sea is very rough, which can be fun, but also tiring. I prefer to chill in the sea.

I didn't see any security guards anywhere; however, someone said the beach had only recently been opened to the public... That was around the end of September 2017. The beach was all but empty and I walk the length without... More

There are a few caves in El Nido. Some of them are out amongst the islands & some are inland. There's plenty of scuba diving sites. Some completely unexplored. Parasailing no. A bit too commercial right now, but Boracay you... More

Lots of drone video clips from Nacpan, Duli & Las Cabanas on youtube. You can fly them without legal worries. This is not land of the free where you can't do anything. You can do everything here (within reason) Enjoy!
