Spending three nights in El Nido was the perfect amount of time for my adventures in the North of Palawan Island, Philippines. The main draw card in the area is Island Hopping which is a full day activity. With only one more full day in the area I decided to walk around town and explore some of the nearby beaches.
While the scenery is stunning, the township of El Nido, in my opinion, is nothing to write home about. The town is a bit crammed for space and the hostels are end of the world gross as so many backpackers are trying to squeeze into a small space (I was in a 8 person bunk room with one small fan - never again!)
Despite the feeling of an overpopulated backpacker town, by taking a 30 minute walk out of town resulted in lovely beaches and cute cafes on the sand - my kinda of space!
