How to go to El Nido?

MANILA to EL NIDO

AirSwift, the airline of Resort El Nido offers some nonstop flights to El Nido from Manila. The flight will take about 1 hour.

MANILA to PUERTO PRINCESA

If the flight time of Air Swift does not match your schedule, Cebu Pacific or Philippine Airlines also have daily flights to Puerto Princesa, Palawan. The duration of this flight is 1 hour 20 minutes.

PUERTO PRINCESA to EL NIDO

Once you arrive at Puerto Princesa International Airport, you will need a 6-hour shuttle or bus to get to El Nido Island. Because the journey to El Nido is quite long, it’s best to rent your own car (with driver) to get the most comfortable transportation from Puerto Princesa to El Nido.

4. Borawan, Quezon

If Boracay and Palawan had a child, it would be Borawan Island! The island is named after the two beaches because of the similarities between white sand and limestone.
