TAKE A LOOK AT THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND IN THE WORLD
It comes to no surprise that Palawan has been named, once again, the Most Beautiful Island in the WORLD by Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure. Out of all the places we've traveled in the Philippines, Palawan seems to still blow us away with its amazing landscapes, rock formations and clear blue waters because theres nothing like it in the world. Palawan has many amazing islands, but for this blog post we will show you the amazing El Nido.
HOW TO GET THERE
The easiest and best way to get to El Nido is to fly via AIRSWIFT, the only airline that flies direct to El Nido. If you decide to use another airline, you will fly first to Puerto Princesa Airport and you must travel another 5 hours by van to get to El Nido. The flight flies from NAIA Terminal 4, and it takes about 50 minutes to fly to paradise. Airswift is one of the most convenient airlines because they have great service and free food and drinks before the flight.
WHERE TO STAY
There are many hotels to choose from around El Nido, from 5 star island hotels, to affordable hostels which makes it easier for anyone to come and visit. We stayed at Mahogany Resort, which is a fairly priced hotel and is comfortable and amazing. Our suite fit 6 people and it comes with a little outdoor jacuzzi, plus its really close to the town, so its much easier to find a place to eat or drink. Our second resort was El Nido Cove and its a little pricier but more private and is located near the airport and Lio Beach (which is a must visit!).
WHAT TO DO
Island Hopping is definitely the main attraction on this island because there are many beautiful beaches & lagoons to see. We booked our island tours via our hotel Mahogany Resort just for the convenience but there are many other boat companies you can look for around town. We visited the most amazing lagoons, beaches and snorkeling spots during our stay. We alotted 3 days for island hopping because there is just so much to see, our main spots were Big Lagoon, Small Lagoon, Secret Beach, Seven Commando Beach, Cadlao Lagoon, and Helicopter Island.
Palawan is really the Most Beautiful Island in the WORLD, and if you plan to come and visit, just send us an email and we would love to help you out!
