Photographer's Note

If you wander a short distance away from where the tour boats dock, it's possible to find an uncrowded section of beach, such as this, on Helicoptor Island, in the Bacuit Archipelago, off El Nido. (Also known as Dilumacad Island). El Nido is at the northern tip of Palawan. Daytrips from El Nido are only about 500-700 pesos or $12-15. Helicoptor Island is named because of its shape, when seen from a distance out in the bay.

That's Cadlao Island in the distance. It, too, has some gorgeous beaches, & good snorkelling over the fringing coral reefs just offshore.
