El Nido. The remote slice of paradise at the northernmost tip of Palawan. This secluded spot, encircled by towering cliffs has one of the prettiest sunsets I’ve ever seen. However, those same cliffs that make El Nido town itself so cut off from the rest of the world also block out the sunset. So to see the spectacular sight for yourself head slightly out of town to Las Cabanas Beach.
Just 20 minutes drive (slightly longer by tuktuk or trike) brings you to Las Cabanas Beach. A long stretch of powdery sand, fringed by very instagram worthy beach bars.
Ben, Chiara and I spent a whole day here. Lazing on the sand, popping to the bars for drinks & snacks and when it got too hot to function, floating in the sea while the waves washed us ashore.
If you’re on a budget, pack yourself a lunch and make a day of it. The wait is well worth it. As the sun dipped below the horizon the sky changed all kinds of pinks and purples. We stayed until it started to get dark and went straight back to town for dinner – content, sun baked and very chill.
