When in El Nido Palawan - A Trip to Nacpan Beach with Northern Hope Tours

Island tours in El Nido can be quite exhausting as they try to cover at least five destinations in one day. If you opt for a chill and relaxing day, a visit to Nacpan Beach is your best choice. Just a 40 minute ride from the town proper, Nacpan Beach has become one of the popular inland destinations in El Nido and that's all because of the long stretch of white sand and clear waters that it offers.

Where to Eat in El Nido - Cafe Athena: A Taste of the Mediterranean

Dining in El Nido is kind of an adventure in itself. Since there are no fast food chains in the area, everything is basically alien to me. We got some recommendations from the front desk of our hotel which we got to try, but I wasn't totally mind blown. Luckily, we got to encounter a Mediterranean restaurant in El Nido that offered me the best meal I've had in the island.  

Cafe Athena, which started in October 2016, is inspired by everything Grecian. The setup is like a taverna but theirs is quite larger than the usual taverna due to a much needed expansion. Also, the name Athena is derived from the Goddess Athena of Greek Mythology. And as their name and concept suggests, they offer only the best Mediterranean cuisine in El Nido.

When In El Nido, Palawan - Island Hopping (Tour C) with Northern Hope Tours

I am intensely OC when it comes to anything and that includes traveling. I'd love to be the adventurous happy-go-lucky type, but there will always be a part of me that just wanted a fixed itinerary even before going. Of course, that went well and my heart was at ease with having pre-booked tours with Northern Hope Tours, a travel company based in El Nido that offers island hopping tours and van transfers both in Puerto Princesa City and El Nido.

Our Palawan trip was dedicated entirely on El Nido and you can't say that you've been to El Nido for sure if you haven't tried out any of their island hopping tours. Sure, the municipality is a destination in itself as it offers tons of food establishments to visit, inland tours to try out, and white sand beaches to enjoy, but the beauty of El Nido definitely lies within its numerous islands.
