I fell in love with Nacpan Beach the very first time that I went there. And I’ve been visiting this place countless of times ever since my blog post about it. There was even a time that I went there alone.
I love how it represents an untouched side of El Nido. I love how laid back it is and I love that you could walk in its long beach lined with only vegetations and coconut trees and just take a dip on the slowly descending shores whenever I want to.
There was even a time I was sitting on the sand and drinking coffee while waiting for the sunset while rain clouds were dominantly scattered above. And I still loved it. It was a bummer though that I did not get to see the sunset that time.
I’ve always wanted to stay there for a night. Actually, I already did last year and I just did it again last month with my former officemates who visited me here in Palawan.
And so after our Island Hopping from the town proper and a long wait because the tricycle driver forgot our arrangement to fetch us right after the island hopping tour, we got there around 8PM. Tired, sticky and espasol-like from the dust on the road going to Nacpan Beach. For that night we stayed at Jack’s Place.
If you’ve read about my blog post on Stella Maris in Bataan, you would have known that I love minimalists resorts with lots of open space, well maintained grass and concreteless pathways and Jack’s Place offers just that. Plus their rooms are made mostly of wood and indigenous materials with only less concrete.
