El Nido Islands and Beaches: Nacpan and Calitang Beach

This is the final part of the series of El Nido Islands and Beaches where I save the best for last. Nacpan and Calitang Beach is the best among the beaches that I’ve been to. The Nacpan and Calitang beach which I considered as paradise can be found in El Nido.

If you’re in El Nido in Palawan, the famous island hopping is something that you absolutely cannot miss. I tried tour A & B and both are absolutely fantastic and definitely worth it. One beach is actually better than the other. Fortunately, El Nido at this time is still in its best conditions and the islands are relatively quiet during the island hopping.

The difference?? of these beaches to other beaches and Islands in El Nido is that it is not usually visited by tourists…?? Calitang and Nacpan beach is sharing the same shoreline. It only divided?? by a paved stone which serves as a marker between the two beaches. The beach is not yet commercialize. Meaning, you will not find any establishments here. A fishing village and a large resthouse are the only structures in here. In case your island tours get cancelled due to reasons like bad weather, while in El Nido, you can consider Nacpan and Calitang as your option. Just rent motorbike or hire a tricycle then you can go to Nacpan and Calitang beach overland. Some said it’s the longest strip of beach in El Nido. It is about 20kms north of El Nido town proper. Granted it’s not easy to get there, the road is tough and the sun is very intense but the rewards are phenomenal.

    • Bino says:

      Hi Jonas, thanks for dropping by. :) Walang accomodation sa Calitang Beach. Kung adventurous ka naman and if you want an overnight stay, pwede ka naman magdala ng tent or hammock. :)

    Sir, Do you know how long the beach is (white beach in boracay is 4km.)? coz I heard that beaches in El Nido are narrow and short, so to see this is quite surprising!. I can’t locate this particular place in google earth so if u know the coordinates it would be of great help.

    Great Blog and awesome pics!.
