Vacation in Palawan 2 – The Orange Pearl

Second night in El Nido we moved farther along the beach. Quite a bit farther. The place was newly opening and rough around the edges, but a real pearl. It was called The Orange Pearl. If you are visiting El Nido and like quiet, secluded, white sand beaches, nice people and don’t need too many luxuries(although this might change), this is the place. You have to walk through this lovely coconut grove and then along the beach for a stretch to get there.

Here is the sunset.

And another, less subtle one.

  2. Looks awesome! Were going to Palawan this January and we are thinking of staying here. Would you say this is the nicest beach in the area? I’m debating staying on this beach or Las Cabanas.. Any tips? Thanks!

    • We ate at Las Cabanas, but didn’t stay there. Looked more comfortable than Orange pearl, but pricier as well. Orange pearl was doing a lot of work, it has probably changed a lot. We also stayed further down the beach at a much pricier place, Dolarog I believe, but very nice. See some pics here:

      Pics 7,8,9,10, 11 (pic with pool shows what you are paying for) and 14 are all of Dolarog. The rest of the pics were in and around orange pearl and Las Cabanas. Didn’t like the owners of Dolarog much so don’t recommend it. Loved the Orange Pearl people.
      We stayed at a place in Coloron and walked down the beach looking at all the places. Orange Pearl was best for us and our budget.
      Have fun!
      Next time you are in Taiwan, swing up the east coast from Kenting for an even more laid back beach vacation!

      • Awesome thank you so much for the tips! I’m going to check out those pics now. And ya we really do want to get back to Taiwan one day. I’ve heard cool things about the east coast. I heard there is a resort owned by Taiwan Natives and is hidden in some epic valley. Thanks again for your tips. So excited for winter vacation! I’m going to check out more of your blog now 😀

      • Yes, the Bunun Leisure Farm, I’ve heard good things about it as well. My wife is the same tribe, but we’ve yet to go, they don’t accommodate kids!
