Ohhh I still can't get over our El Nido trip 3 weeks ago. Aside from the fact that it was the boyfriend's birthday getaway, it was really unforgettable for both of us because it's our first time in El Nido. We've been eyeing it since last year but I was not able to score tickets so when I saw AirAsia introduced a new promo, I grabbed it right away! 128516

Anyway, here is one of my favorite places that we have visited. The beautiful Seven Commandos Beach. According to our boatman/tour guide, Seven Commandos Beach was named after seven Japanese soldiers who allegedly got stranded in the island after World War II. People who found this beach claimed that they saw the soldiers' names written on a rock so they named the beach after them. Though I am a bit skeptical about that, di kaya name ng barko nila yun? Whatever it is, we'll never know. Back to my story, Seven Commandos is part of the Tour A package that we availed together with my aunt and her husband. A white bed of fine white sand, proud coconut trees and clear water will greet people and instantly sets a relaxing mood for anyone as you disembark from the boat. This is a great place if you want a romance with the sun while enjoying the view. Perfect spot for snorkeling, swimming or just basking in the sun. I don't know about others but this particular beach made me think of Calaguas. A slice of paradise on Earth, indeed. However, there are some wooden seats and stalls that sells buko in the area. A bit more commercialized than Calaguas but still has that laidback ambiance that you won't find in Boracay. (Don't get me wrong, I love Bora and it's definitely nice too but I just find it too crowded, noisier and dirtier)

There's also this seasoned island photographer in the area that offers trick photos for 50Php. Manong photographer was a bit snobby but he was quite good in taking photos and he has a great timing. See the boyfriend's photo? He took it with just one click. Well, sa bagay ikaw ba naman siguro araw araw gawin yun tingnan ko lang di mo pa maperfect. Lol. 128517 And then there's this swing na nakakatuwa. I did not try it because I was scared that I'll fall off from it but the bf did. Sarap daw. Haha

We were not able to stay here longer but I heard that there are available rooms for rent in this beach. If given a chance, I'd like to spend a night here overlooking Bacuit Bay. I am really fond of powdered white sand beaches with a chill vibe. Ayoko ng madaming tao. Lol!

Along the pristine beach of the Seven Commandos Beach, coconut trees stood proud like soldiers ready for battle. According to our boat man, this Island was named after the seven soldiers who lived and got stranded in this island during the World War II. After the island was abandoned, the locals discovered and explored the island. They found a carving on one of the huge stones in there, and the carving reads "Seven Commando".

Seven Commandos Beach can be found in one of the islands in El Nido, Palawan. It has a vast sandy shore that is perfect for sunbathing or snorkeling, playing sports or simply lazing. You may also consider spending time in their nipa huts for free with your best friends while waiting for the most stunning and beautiful sunset you'll ever see. If you are a beach bum, this is the island for you. 🏖🏝

If you are planning to visit the island, you may want to avail of their Tour A which includes other islands such as the famous small lagoon, big lagoon, Entalula Island, and Shimizu Island. Seven Commando is the last stop of Tour A.

Lemme start this review by saying that I am glad that i visited Seven Commando Beach before it's popularity.   I got a little sad when i found out the island got victimised by modernity and commercialisation. 

This is Seven Commando Beach sans the popularity. 

Out of all the islands we visited in El Nido,  7C is one of my favorites.  The beach is bare except for the lush fauna and rock formations that serves as backdrop.  The fine sand that makes the shoreline condusive to snow angels or making sand castles (whatever tickles your fancy).  The turquoise waters is perfect for extended hours of swimming. 

7C is straightforward.  Not too pretty as Big Lagoon,  not too complicated as Secret Beach.  What makes it stand out is it's simplicity.

7 Commando Beach was the last stop of Tour A. The island was named after the 7 Japanese commandos who lived in the island after World War II.

Probably my favorite island that I've visited. White, fine, and sandy beach perfect for swimming. I can frolic here all day!

Seven commando(s) beach is the last stop of Tour A. It was supposedly named after the seven American soldiers who lived and eventually died on the island. So they say.
You can spend around an hour here just swimming, sunbathing and of course taking photos. It's a fun stop as well because I think it's the only one where you can buy shakes, fresh buko, halo2 or in my case, halo2 in buko! Yeah! Prices aren't absurd either, I think I paid 150 for the halo2 in buko which was delicious. There are also some hammocks ands volleyball net. Definitely a great way to end the tour 128077🏼

Last stop of our El Nido Tour A! 128522

Wide shore area... You can either sun bathe, play beach volleyball, frisbee, or just go chill at the tables and cottages for free. Enjoy cocktails and their buko-halo: A halo-halo served in a buko for P150! 128541 This is the only island in Tour A that has snacks and cottages. And oh, a comfort room. 128522 It's just sad cos some tourists are leaving their beer bottles and buko shells in cottages. Lol too lazy to walk their asses off and put in the trash bin, huh? 128528

Our boatmen allowed us to stay here for an hour before we go back to pier and return to our respective hotels or inns. 128522 We joined the other tourists in our boat-- local and foreign and had some beer, buko-halo, and stories with them. 128522

Beware of jellyfishes.... I mean, jellyfishes as big a basketball. We saw 6 already on our way to this island. The boatmen said there are even bigger jellyfishes in the middle of the ocean. 128552128561128560

Seven commando beach is part of El Nido island hopping Tour A. The beach has a long fine white sand shoreline. The water is very clear, blue with a touch of green.

The only island in Tour A with natives selling halo-halo and fresh buko juice.
