El nido is one of the beautiful island in Philippines and this comes under Palawan region. It is famous for it’s beautiful Lagoons and secrets/hidden/beautiful beaches. There are around 50 beaches, which can visited during multiples visits to el nido.
El nido is famous among Europium and Spanish tourist. I encountered lot of them during my visit to el nido recently. They all had come to enjoy beach life like- snorkeling, corals, sea food etc. There are many cafe’s on El nido beach, who serve best and lot of variety in sea food. This place is paradise for sea food lovers. The best part I liked about it, these cafe’s are on beach itself, if you you choose to sit outside of cafe on cafe’s sitting arrangements, then there are chances that sea water kiss your feet.
