Marimegmeg Beach, El Nido, Palawan… on a GENER-ous Day

The typhoon Gener was whipping the islands with non-stop heavy rains and winds, classes were suspended, and yet, one of our faculty members who had just arrived and had not been to the beach since, wanted to go to the beach. So we headed to the nearest pretty beach in Brgy. Corong-corong – a trike’s ride away out of town proper and a few minutes walk down a muddy path.

There are a few beach resorts on this strip of beach, right before travelers from Puerto Princesa arrive at the town proper of El Nido. Las Cabanas is one of them. In fact, there is a Las Cabanas signage right by the road. But for the most part, this beach is a private one, and you need to bring your own food or drinks or your beach mat.

We we’re blessed with a little bit of sun for some time, which allowed me to take the following photos.

El Nido, even in bad weather, is still breathtaking!

I absolutely love this little bar. It’s on the beach front, a few meters away from Sea Slugs, Og’s and Habibi. The place is very photogenic. I took a hundred and twenty photos in twenty minutes. The sun peeked in and out of the clouds, and it was fun to play hide and seek with.
