Last August, my family and I went to El Nido, Palawan. It was one of the best beach getaways our family did. I finally understood why they call Palawan “umbrella” or shelter. It’s not crowded and you can literally have your own island. The white, serene beaches are very calming and relaxing.
Unlike popular belief, you can have a budget holiday in El Nido. There are lots of small hotels at Bacuit beach, El Nido. From there, you can hire boats to go for island hopping. The food there is fresh and cheap.
We stayed at La Salangane. They have a restaurant and the food was great.
