Either a seven-hour van ride from Sabang, or a short air-conditioned flight from Manila will bring you to El Nido, the perfect place to spend a few days decompressing, topping up the tan and island hopping.
Organize a day of island hopping for about $10, and let your captain drop you on deserted island after deserted island. Work up an appetite walking on your own private beach, or swimming in the clearest turquoise water you've ever seen. Then watch as your lunch of freshly caught grilled fish, and sweet, ripe mangoes is prepared. Island life is so good! It will be hard to move on to your next destination after this treat!
