There are plenty of beaches with fine white sand in El Nido, so pick any one and laze in the sun. You can also go beach hopping in relative peace—the area doesn’t have the same crowding problem that Boracay does, so you can relax in solitude.

Selfie at Matinloc Shrine


Sorry I forgot to bring my selfie stick 😛

Matinloc Shrine is located in the center of the island of Matinloc. It’s a mini museum that shows the history of the place and is near a hidden beach. Marvel at the simple but eerie architecture which can really evoke a sense of spiritual awe.

Take a motorcycle from the town proper and check out the unspoiled beauty of these adjacent beachs. The coconut groves and the long stretches of isolated shores make this place an incredible spot for watching the sun set.
