    Hi everyone

    I am looking at spending time around Long Beach after my Tao Phillipines trip. Information is slim on the ground, which to me signals a good sign, but does anyone have any recommendations of places I can stay - shall I just turn up?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Wow, that is a bargain, did you stay there, can you book? How do I get from El Nido down there?

    they usually have rooms available lean season. bookings are possible thru personal contacts. expect rustic set-up and if lucky an invitation to a home-cooked dinner fr your landlord. bus from el nido to san vicente takes abt 3-4 hrs. a short motorbike ride from san vicente to long beach and back will cost abt P200.

    Thanks! Do you recommend the area as a place to stay in, in general? My plan was a couple of days in Coron once landed, then Tao Phillipines, then a couple in El Nido, then about 4 days or so a bit further south (somewhere, Long Beach was my first idea) before flying back to Manila from Puerto Princesa

    zenpmd, have a look at Port Barton. Its near the Underground River but I am told very remote place. I have had 2 friends go there and they have loved it because of its isolation, I have been checking it out now for 6 years but haven't made it there yet. You can find a little info on the net about the place, just look hard and you can come up with some interesting info. I think it would be a great place to visit now, as when San Vincete takes of, it wont be that Natural anymore. Have a great trip Bro.

    I've been to palawan and everything is beautiful and awesome, and there is nothing more to ask. Sample pictures for your preview Palawan El Nido pictures I want to go back if i have budget! but i believe that is a one time trip. :( no money for now. I will greatly suggest this place, the place is like a photoshop in reality

    Hey CC

    Too late! I am back in the UK now, sadly. Palawan was incredible. Everyone there has a lucky life.
