Corong Corong: Scenic stretch in North Palawan, Philippines

When someone thinks of northern Palawan, the first thing that comes into mind is El Nido. El Nido is sure very pretty with stunning limestone karsts, underwater life, lagoons and more, but a short distance from it in Corong Corong, where one can see this pristine nature from a high vantage point. And when you want to get close to it, you can just walk down to the Las Cabanas or Marimekmek beach below.

This is also one of those places to see the best sunsets near El Nido and the mighty limestone karsts here cast quite a surreal definition to this panorama. There are some places to stay here if you wish to be close to this view for a longer while. Swimming areas are good in patches as most of the waters here is shallow and rocky and is very tricky to get into during low tide. But, one can go island hopping during low tide and enjoy a swim during high tides.

Unlike El Nido, Corong Corong does not have too much of a night scene, but it is not for the party type, but for the quieter types. At six kilometers from El Nido, Corong Corong can be easily visited either on a rented motorbike or a tricycle (one way 100 pisos) as part of a day trip with most people preferring to visit it from noon till sunset.
