El Nido is drawing the attention of the world as being the last secret of the Philippines’ 7,107 islands.
We found emerging mountains and a shining, emerald green sea.
The abundant nature splendor is surely suitable enough to call it the world's best resort.
The El Nido Spirit, which respects nature over humans, has taken root here.
In the southwest Philippines, floating in the South China Sea, is a town in the northern part of the Palawan Islands called "El Nido". The harmony of white sand, blue sea, and greenery -- it's said that the Spanish who visited here in the 17th century were overwhelmed by its extraordinary beauty, so they left it as is. Genius diver, Jack Maillol, also was famously captivated by the island's beauty in the movie "Grand Blue". Now we have visited El Nido, the "last land of mystery in the Philippines" - fascinating tourists and divers all over the world.
You can go directly from Cebu to El Nido by AirSWIFT in about 1 hour 40 minutes. Alternatively, you can fly to Puerto Princesa, the largest city in the Palawan Islands, and reach El Nido by bus in 5-6 hours.
