Caalan Beach Resort El Nido Palawan – 5 Days Hotel Stay Review

Caalan Beach Resort El Nido Palawan – 5 Days Hotel Stay Review

February 15 to 19, 2016 – I was in El Nido Palawan for another great adventure. I’ve finally set foot on the most talked about paradise in the Philippines, a paradise part of Palawan. With that, Caalan Beach resort in El Nido has taken me and my good friend, and travel buddy, Channel for 5 days, and 4 nights – yes, for the whole week. Usually I do get a hotel stay for at least 2 nights from hotels, which is great for me because with that I’d be able to try out the differences between hotels around the town. But the resort was so great that they did want us for the whole week there, though we can actually just say we need to try out other accommodations there, though we planned to do so, but being at Caalan Beach Resort for 3 days was really great that we don’t want to transfer anymore – so that actually summarizes our stay, we love the resort way too much that we didn’t want to leave anymore. The Caalan Beach Resort El Nido PROS: * Away from the noise of the town * Family frien

On the Matinloc Shrine of El Nido

On the Matinloc Shrine of El Nido

The Matinloc shrine of El Nido Palawan is hidden in the forests of Matinloc Island and the abandoned Matinloc shrine was built in 1982 in honor of the virgin Mary. There are also a lot of stories about the place, but none of it are not really sure that was the reason. There is a chapel there, if only they’ve finished it I do think it will be like a place where a lot of people will visit there not only for the view. Or maybe instead of a chapel they’ve could’ve made it something else that could benefit the locals there, and the place itself. A hotel maybe? I’m scared of abandoned buildings, since I do see, well, see and feel figures that not a lot of people see. So I do avoid abandoned buildings or just creepy places. But if you’re not like me, you can do get inside the abandoned building and just check it out – do some photo-shoots maybe? Since the Matinloc shrine is in Matinloc island that has a secret beach, which is a pocket of white sand beach at the corner of a sinkhole,

Secret Beach El Nido Palawan – No Secret Anymore

Secret Beach El Nido Palawan – No Secret Anymore

The Secret Beach is another reason why we think that El Nido island hopping tour C, stands for “Challenging”. It was windy, the wave is strong, and it was cold – well, for a Filipina. But we needed to jump off the boat, swim, go to the hole, and be able to spot and get into the Secret Beach El Nido. I haven’t also mentioned that the water from where we jump off the boat is really deep, I can’t even see clearly where it ends - that’s how deep it is. So, if you’re not a confident swimmer, make sure you have your life jacket on, it will also help you be not too cold with the cold water and breeze. No worries, if you’re worried that it’s still deep inside the Secret Beach, well, it’s not. There are a lot of rocks there, that you can immediately step on, and rest after swimming in a cold breeze – if it’s also cold when you’re visiting. Inside the Secret Beach El Nido , there’s a white sand, and it’s like a small pool but the bottom is of course rocks, and sands. I also saw a big

Lunch Stop at Talisay Beach

Lunch Stop at Talisay Beach

After our challenging entrance to the Hidden beach El Nido, our next stop was the Talisay Beach wherein we had our lunch prepared by the tour guide and boat men of Northern Hope Tours. They needed more time to prepare our lunch, and our tour guide kuya Alfer told us that we can take a swim, snorkel near the rocks and see some beautiful fishes. Told us that if we’re not confident in swimming or snorkeling to stay along the side of the rocks because further from that is really deep – and it was indeed deep. Just few leg strikes from the boat I spotted the clown fish nest right away, and go there. Spotted a pair of clown fish with a friend fish – sorry, it was not Dory, but he sure was angry that I was there watching them. We also saw some small fish at the Talisay Beach of El Nido, actually a school of small fish. It was dazzling, since they’re sparkling, the video that I’ve made showing them is not half as beautiful as it is. At the shore, there are also some big rocks

A Challenging Getaway to Hidden Beach of El Nido

A Challenging Getaway to Hidden Beach of El Nido

We were on the boat going onwards, towards some big rocks from our first stop at Helicopter Island . I didn’t really get where we're going, where’s the tourist spot? The anchors dropped, and our guide then said that we can now jump off now to go to the Hidden Beach. And I’m like, to where? The wave is strong, and if I jump off there most likely the waves are going to take me to the huge rocks. But then I saw some tourists coming out, and that’s the time I realized maybe we’re going there from where they’re from. I’m very dependent on my fins, I can swim without a life jacket, with a snorkel and fin, but if you remove the fin, I feel like I’m going to drown, and the guide said, no fins – I’m a dead piggy meat. I did try it. But I drank some salty water, felt like drowning because the wave is too strong that it covered my snorkel and all. I went back to the boat and ask the guide to get my life jacket, I can’t go on to where we should be without my fins, or at least a life jack

It’s a Whale, It’s a Fish, it’s El Nido’s Helicopter Island!

It’s a Whale, It’s a Fish, it’s El Nido’s Helicopter Island!

Just about 25 minutes away from the El Nido shore, we arrived at the white sands, in the land of the Helicopter island. Yes, the name of the island is “helicopter” because of it’s helicopter shape but it’s also known as Dilumacad island. Actually, I see it more like a whale, or a fish. But yeah, it can be a helicopter too, without a propeller. Once we arrived, we jumped off the boat, other from the boat decided to go around first, take pictures, jump shots, or another OOTD. But, as you might have noticed in my blog, I love waters, I love snorkeling since the day I visited and snorkel in Coron Palawan . So yeah, I grabbed my snorkel, my fins, and my GoPro Hero 4 Silver and swim far away from the island and into the corals. I was so excited to see some corals again, and beautiful fishes, hoping El Nido has something more to offer than Coron since everyone says it’s way better. But sadly, I’m not sure why but there are some corals damaged in the island, not sure if it’s because
