El Nido is an obscenely beautiful place. Be it its beaches, its limestone mountains, its lagoons, its caves, its forests or its underwater experience. It is one of those places that you hate to leave once you’ve stayed there for a while. The El Nido town in itself does not have much of these views, but once you are like 2 to 5 kilometers from it, the views get very picturesque.
Take the Las Cabanas beach as an example. It is situated about 5 kms from El Nido and its sunset is iconic. I tried going there to see the sunset, but the clouds would always come in during the evenings. In spite of that, I absolutely adored the mountain view from the beach. The massive limestone islands to the right and the small helicopter island to the left are my favorites.
