A Beach Whose Name I Forgot

We visited a remote part of  El Nido on a motorbike 28 kilometers from town center to get to a deserted beautiful beach. Such a shame, right? I forgot the name of this spot and I can't find it anywhere in my notes, neither on the internet. I was probably so excited at that time I forgot to write it down.

While renting a motorbike in  El Nido Town, we found out that a family-owned beach front B&B just opened its doors to tourists through a flyer with a map.  It was located further than Nacpan Beach.  As we crossed rice paddies and rolling hills whose steep slope almost sent us sliding back when our engine suddenly died, it was a fun experience having a beach lost to everyone and all to ourselves that day. With that, I'd like to post this unedited video on a motorbike to share with you the sights and sounds as though you are with us.

The Journey

The Destination

The B&B with a small terraced restaurant
The white sand beach. The  owners of the beach house offer boat rentals to visit that island and the neighboring beaches.
Accommodation: Camping in tents with a common bathroom and lounge
A good chicken curry lunch with that view.
There is no public transportation to get to this place other than a motorbike. However, there's a possibility for a van transfer/ pickup from El Nido Town if you're booked in this resort.

Food:  They offer a good serving of delicious home cooked style meal that is reasonably priced.

Activities: They have recently set up a rock climbing wall which wasn't there yet during our visit. They also have in-land 4X4 tours to the nearby hot springs, waterfalls, hanging bridge and neighboring beaches.
