Miniloc Island Resort at El Nido, Palawan

One of my best vacations this year was our recent trip to Miniloc Island at El Nido, Palawan. It was a sweet 3 days and 2 nights stay at one of the best island resorts in Palawan, and probably the entire Philippines.

To get there, easily, you might want to take the direct flight (chartered) to El Nido and land straight in the nearest island airport. Then you have to take a speed boat ride to Miniloc for about 45 minutes.

The place is one of the smaller islands in the dozen of islands along the northern end of Palawan. There are close to a hundred rooms. The speed boats will dock about a hundred meters away from the dock to avoid hitting the rich corrals. A smaller banca will fetch the passengers from the speed boat and bring them to the docking station.

The place is amazing from the moment you step off the banca. The staff will welcome you will all smiles and sing festive songs to celebrate your arrival. The entire staff will heard you to the restaurant and serve cold fruit drinks and cold towels for you to relax while you check-in. The relations manager will then orient the visitors of the facilities, activities and some ecological rules and policies around El Nido.

From there on, it’s all relaxing time, buffet meals and a lot of tours around the islands of El Nido You can go snorkeling at the from beach where they’ve made a small lagoon, go kayaking around the island, or scuba diving for the more adventurous and just spending a nice relaxing afternoon bathing under the sun.

    Palawan is really amazing! I’ve been to Puerto Princesa and Coron, and El Nido will be my next destination next year… Palawan offers a never ending fun and relaxing destination… What we just need is to explore and have fun!

  • wilma

    my friends and i are going there on october 21, and we’re excited….can’t wait to be there 🙂

  • Pretty photos. Will try to go there some time, but already have a scheduled trip to coron with family.

  • para sa mga tulad ko na dream destination ang el nido but can’t afford the dollar rates, pwede kayo mag-Puerto Princesa then van ride to el nido town, mas affordable at mag-rent na lang kayo ng boat for island-hopping! i went there last april…

  • Mark Henry S. Go

    Thanks for the heads-up will definitely be going there sometime in the future! The Philippines is definitely awesome!!!

  • Lucy Inclusive Resorts
