About the neighbourhood
Terra Nova is built on a private peninsula located in the Bay of Cataban, near the village of Liminangcong and 30 min south by fast speedboat (55 min by traditional Banka) from El Nido village and airport. We can pick you up from Art Café or the cosy Mezzanine restaurant-bar owned by our friend Adrien. Serena Street, Barangay Buena Suerte, El Nido, Palawan. Or from Art Café also located in El Nido village. The Philippines's Palawan Island was voted 2016 Nº1 island in the world by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine. In 1996, the El Nido-Taytay Managed Resource Protected Area was selected as one of the eight Protected Areas within the Philippines by UNESCO and the World Heritage Fund. It is also a marine turtle sanctuary.
Getting around
Terra Nova is located on a private, secluded peninsula (11º 1’98” N - 119º 19’14’ E), N-West coast of Palawan, 35-55 min away by speedboat, at the South -East of El Nido Village and Airport (1hr flight from Manila). There is also a small access to the closest fishing village, by a dirt road leading to Taytay and Puerto Princesa (international airport) which is about 5+ hours away from El Nido by private car or mini-van - the road is bumpy but very scenic. HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE THAT you can not directly access our residence by car (only 10-15 min boat ride from the nearest village which is accessible by road). Our domain is slightly away from the super touristy areas, but we take you to the most famous spots and to some more secrets ones...
