El Nido is the most popular holiday destination in Palawan, the westernmost province in the Philippines. It is a first-class municipality that also comprises 45 islands and islets. “The Nest” owes its name to the fact it’s an important turtles’ breeding area. Famous for its white-sand beaches, turquoise waters, coral reefs, and splendid limestone rock formations similar to those of Ha Long Bay in Vietnam or Phang Nga Bay in Thailand. As for activities, sea kayaking is the favourite eco-friendly way to explore the nooks and crannies of each island. Snorkelling and scuba diving are the activities that first began to put El Nido on the bucket list of many travellers.
