Palawan the Philippines' last frontier takes pride with her unspolied splendour, that is, the El Nido.

Comprising 45 jagged and enthralling islands and islets that boasts of distinct features, El Nido which is one of the most sought after tourist destination in the province of Palawan in the Philippines is a paradise that will make all of your wishes of a near flawless vacation trip or a date become a reality. Imagine what this wonderful place can offer: sunset champagne that stimulates further romance, a hearty breakfast in a cruise, frolic in the fine white sand playing volleyball or other ball games, having picnic near the subtle nearby water, and a truly palatable dinner dished out by connoisseurs while enjoying the serenades that is accompanied by an acoustic guitar.

Most of the breathtaking islands and islets here are endowed with fine white sand beaches and coves that are perfect for sunbathing and having picnics. Well-crafted ancient caves are common here, as gentle and calm lagoons lurks beneath the limestone walls as it depth displays blue and green shades at will at Miniloc Island.

El Nido is not only a nature’s masterpiece as it is endowed with rich natural marine life. This hidden paradise prime itself as one of the best place in the Philippines when it comes to biodiversity as it hosts more than 400 species of corals which is eight times greater than that of the Caribbean.

El Nido’s fun under the sun offer is endless. Kayaking is one of the things that you will definitely enjoy, go forth and explore mystical lagoons in various caves. Snorkel underneath the Miniloc House Reef and swim side by side with a one and half meter long Jackfish, which is considered to be a rare treat and get dazzled with the exotic and vibrant life forms here.

You may opt to discover Cudugnon Cave, go bird watching by the mangroves to get startled with nature’s showcase of explosion of colors and plumage, have a sunbathe in the Bacuit Bay or see the grandiose of the place by engaging in an island hopping spree.

Foods with distinct Filipino taste will surely satisfy. Shrimps, prawns and other sea foods will surely make you asking for more once you tried them. Chicken tocinos, Filipino versions of ensaladas and barbecues are cinched to be a perfect treat. A gastronomic gourmet dinner is a perfect way to cap your trip to one of the best and romantic place to enjoy a memorable vacation trip or a date.

The fun here never ends and the landscape is indeed mesmerizing so as to speak.

Glad I'm back... Looking forward to write more.
