Unwind at Nacpan Beach, a secluded beach some 17 km (10.5 mi) north of El Nido. White sand and clear water on both sides of a sandy stretch will be your reward after a drive on a bumpy road. With palm trees providing necessary shade, this clean and quiet beach offers excellent swimming conditions and some basic facilities, including a rustic seafood joint and paddle boat rental office. Take a steep trail and climb a small hill above the beach to get a full view of this secluded gem, with a 360-degree panorama to enjoy.
