About El Nido, Palawan:
The nature in El Nido is blessed with spectacular limestone rock formations thrusting out of the sea to create numerous tiny islands with dramatic seaside cliffs. Its serene beauty easily compares internationally with Guilin in China, Halong Bay in Vietnam and Kho Phi Phi in Thailand. Whilst these destinations are very popular with tourists, the Philippines remains relatively untouched in comparison, although the last couple of years has seen a dramatic increase of the number of tourists especially backpackers. El nido city has become now a rather crowded and noisy town and therefore we recommended accommodation away from town. Its unfortunate that waste water from the resorts flows directly into the sea making the beach in el nido and partly the beach in Corong Corong less attractive. The boat tours are the main attraction and despite the influx of tourists the beauty of the nearby islands remains amazing and one of best scenery’s in Asia.
