Generally, the water region of El Nido is beautiful. However, it, also consists of beaches that makes part of the whole. Here are 10 of the beaches that can be added into your itinerary for an exciting El Nido Tour.

Seven Commando Beach
There are two stories that explains why this beach is named as such. Some say it’s because of the legend involving the sailors who once got stranded in the island. Others say it’s about the story of 7 Japanese commandos who went missing in the place. Nonetheless, the Seven Commando Beach is only adjacent to the Papaya Beach.

Helicopter Island Beach
The island by where the Helicopter Island Beach is located was open to many interpretations depending on the angle you’re viewing it. Some say it looked like a whale half-soaked in the beach, some say it’s a fish. But the idea that the island looked like a helicopter (minus the rotor blades) prevailed and thus earning its name.
