Plenty has been said and written about El Nido—that part of Palawan where Karst limestone cliffs tower above white sand beaches and crystal clear waters—especially now that prestigious international magazines has repeatedly taken notice.
I first heard of it when I was still in high school. There was an article in Time that gave us details. I forgot about it, until just a few years ago, when the rising popularity of DSLRs prompted many to travel and explore the country.
The whole area is just north of mainland Palawan, where Bacuit Bay meets nearly 40 islands made of rough, natural, limestone material. Going there necessitates having a sufficient number of memory cards for the camera, as well as making it protected from the sea and sea spray.
