Two years after, I can't believe I'm still the only one in |ooloo who reviewed about Nagtabon Beach! 128565128551 Hey everyone, please! Visit this beach!!!! 128561 Try the secluded places in Palawan! 9786

Two years since my last visit, a lot has changed.... There was already a concrete steep and narrow road going down the area... And is finally divided, because the other side was bought already by some firm. 128513 But... Undeveloped yet.

Same drill, pay the locals around the area a little amount of Php 150-300 for a cottage or entrance fee. No store inside, so you have to bring your own food and drinks. 9786

Nagtabon Beach is known for a huge waves and a good sunset view. No, it doesn't have the usual Palawan white sand but I still find this beach beautiful (apparently, my standard of a "beautiful beach" isn't limited to white sand 128539128076🏼).

The waves could be really really high that you can surf! No surfboards for rent, but some locals bring their own surfboards. Some of my friends tried to borrow from two kids but they rejected. 128514🤔128560 Same situation, no lifeguard. Again, this is quite a secluded place in Palawan. So be extra careful!

Better be there for a picnic at around 3pm so you can catch the sunset! 9786

We visited this non-mainstream beach on our 4th day I believe. It's a 1-1/2 hour drive away from the city proper + 15-20 minute rocky drive. This is free, but you have to pay the locals there for the cottage. 128522 There were even foreigners drinking Matador along with the locals when we arrived. 128514

This place isn't crowded so I advice you all to be very careful. Yes, the water is shallow but sometimes the waves just get really huge. My friend and I started dipping in the water, it was calm at first and we were surprised when the wave was so huge it's like a million slaps on our bodies. 128528128165 And hey, since it isn't crowded, there's a chance no one will hear you when you're drowning and you scream for help. This beach is unspoiled and I don't think there are lifeguards around.

If you want to stay away from the crowd when you're in Puerto Princesa, stay here. You can camp overnight or do a day picnic. 128522
