Palawan: Secret Beach

Located in the western side of Matinloc Island in El Nido, in the province of Palawan, Secret Beach is one of the highlights of Tour C of the El Nido Island Hopping Tours. 

Although not that secret anymore due to the fact that it is one of the most famous destinations in El Nido, one without knowledge of its entrance is still sure to miss it. Speaking of its entrance, your boatman would point to you a small hole in the craggy rock wall of the island. For safety purposes, borrow the boat's floater to swim through it. If your boat has a kayak, you could maneuver it so that it would fit in the hole. However, for me, it is pointless to bring a kayak inside the Secret Beach due to the fact that once inside, the water is much shallower and there is little space to kayak around.

Careful bro! That rock is sharp!
The entrance is somewhere there!
Secret Beach as its name suggests, has a small beach tucked inside a secret entrance.half of the beach is occupied by a large craggy rock that once you manage to scale, gives you a nice vantage point of the swimmers below. Sadly, the remaining small area of the beach could only fit 10 to 15 sunbathers and would not be ideal for beach activities like beach volleyball, frisbee games, and other activities that requires large areas. Then again, Secret Beach is best for photoshoots, snorkeling, and swimming.

Overall, Secret Beach is a must visit destination in El Nido. It is actually my favorite due to its deeply captivating atmosphere, perfect for relaxing and admiring nature.

Getting there:

From Puerto Princesa City, hop on a van heading to El Nido. The ride will take you 5 hours or more so make sure you leave early or in the middle of the night. When you arrive in El Nido, avail of the island hopping tour C of El Nido. Secret Beach would be one of your destinations.
Look for that small hole. That's the entrance.
