Our first grand tour for the day is Nacpan beach. This beach is becoming a far-flung destination in it's own right. This is the reality of that picture in your head when you think of paradise. This beach isn't so crowded at all. I think that's the beauty of it. Our feet is on a celebration while we lay on four kilometres soft cream coloured sand. The swaying coconut palms, the rustic bamboo cottages, the strong beautiful waves are the best composition I need for a perfect shot for the day. The raw beauty of the place gets even better as the sun sets wrapped the whole island.


How do you get to Nacpan beach? You can hire a tricycle from El Nido town for around 1000 pesos for all day service. The driver will wait as long as you want. It will take around 45mins to an hour to get there. On the way to the beach, you will have to get through rough roads, when I say rough roads, I really meant in a very bad condition especially it can really get so muddy during rainy seasons. Most people finds it more convenient to rent a motorbike or a scooter for the day than hiring a tricycle. Remember to bring some cash with you as there are no ATM machines and cards are not accepted in the area. At Nacpan beach entrance, you will have to pay a 50 pesos for local environmental conservation fees, that's pretty cheap!

We were so happy to meet Jun and his kid as our tricycle driver for the day. His mild manner plus the cuteness of his son leads to an instant friendship. He told us his work schedule each day, for a family man like him, getting enough sleep is not for him. He is working at the airport as security guard over the night and a tricycle driver during the day. Tough life ey! 

Gazing out onto the sunlit sea generates meditative slumber and relaxing mode. Nacpan beach is an untouched paradise and the perfect place to experience the authentic tropical getaway. We spent the whole afternoon taking pictures and filming as much as we could so check the video above to see what I meant.  

There's a couple of restaurants in the area, one is quite pricey and the other is a local canteen. We ordered our freshly cut fruits from the canteen and had it at our own rustic bamboo hut with the ocean view in front of us. You don't need to worry about drinks as well, cocktails and refreshing drinks are being served by the shore.

Let me say it again, check the video above for reference, and please don't hesitate to contact us if you want to chat about the above content. Enjoy.
