QUICK GUIDE: Buena Suerte Beach in El Nido, Palawan

Buena Suerte Beach is not the finest, whitest beach you’re going to see in El Nido, Palawan, but it is most likely the first to greet you when you arrive. Fringing a small cove facing El Nido Bay, Buena Suerte is one of the four barangays that make up the town proper (poblacion). It is framed by imposing limestone cliffs that tower in the background. It is also the most developed, with dozens of resorts and hotels that have mushroomed along the coast, and the most usual jump off point to the islands. The beach also gives a fantastic view of Cadlao Island.
