Well, all it takes is a chartered plane and boat ride to take you to a secluded spot cradled between limestone cliffs intricately carved by the forces of the earth and water. It’s where the mountains meet the sea and where the shore is just as stunning as the hidden lagoons.

The place is El Nido Resorts in Palawan—a three-island destination that takes you to an eco-touristic sojourn within one of the country’s most beautiful and unspoiled natural wonders.  Apulit, Miniloc and Lagen all bear the Philippine’s tropical trademark, but each has its own distinctive features that stand out from the commonplace.

Apulit Island

Featuring 50 over-the-water cottages, Apulit Island Resort is the choice getaway for both intrepid and novice adventurers. Set within a pristine cove with panoramic views of Palawan’s horizon, Apulit Island is far from the glossy nightlife that most beachcombers inevitably end up in. Instead, you are taken to a resort with an endless stretch of a white-sand beach lined with coconut trees. Here, you can go diving, swim with blue-spotted sting-rays, sail across one of the island’s widest coves, or simply enjoy languid days on the beachfront.

Miniloc Island

On the northern tip of Palawan is Miniloc Island, El Nido’s eco-adventure playground. The island, tucked within a beautiful backdrop of mountains, limestone cliffs, caves, and lagoons is centrally located to access the numerous eco-adventure sites. From island-hopping and sight-seeing to spelunking and kayaking through the most picturesque lagoons, Miniloc Island takes you through a definitive tropical adventure unmatched anywhere in the country.

Lagen Island

Nestled between a lush four-hectare forest and a calm lagoon, Lagen is a tranquil, private island that offers an experience of pampering and relaxation with its luxurious accommodations, private gourmet dinner offerings, and its signature hilot massage. Set against a backdrop of the most dramatic El Nido sunsets, the surrounding forest and breathtaking limestone cliffs are natural attractions that serve as sanctuary for a wide variety of flora and fauna. It is a place where guests would be able to intimately observe these endemic creatures in their natural habitat.
