We had our own hammock with and relaxed at the beach! There are some monkeys but are not harmful or eating/stealing from you. There was no tourist at all. We shared... More

Ipil beach offers a great view towards paradise beach and helicopter island. The pam trees are great to hang a hammock and relax for a couple of ours. Monkeys might roam the trees around, but the two friendly dogs from the nearby house keep them away. Kayak here, its only half an hour. Beware of the sometimes strong winds on... More

The stunning verdant Island of Cadlao and marine-rich Bacquit Bay makes Ipil Beach in El Nido a favorite place for photo enthusiasts, beach combers, snorkels, and nature trippers.

last stop on our A tour boat ride, narrow white beach, beautiful area with great shells, be careful of the dropoff a few meters offshore!

It is a little island, which could be your little paradise if you want, for a long time. Plenty of palmtrees, and with one of the best coral reef in El Nido, snorkelling here is highly recommended. Moreover, is not full of people and you can feel alone in this amazing place. THE BEST. PARADISE. 😍

You must take one of the Island hopping tours to get here as it is only accesible by boat. Lovely, untouched little beach overlooking all the limestone islets in the bay. It was the last stop of Island Tour A (booked through the Art Cafe). Its sandy with a forest backdrop, not the widest of beaches but the water is... More

If you are a decent paddler, rent a kayak and paddle here from El Nido. Bring supplies and enjoy a day under a palm or in the water with few to no other visitors. At least in November. Be sure to get the right beach as there is a small private beach nearby with a couple occupied houses.

Stopped here on our way out to island hopping tour. It is only for guests of Ipil Resorts, and they actually have some bungalows or something here where you can stay. Played with some turtles and a couple of friendly local cats!
