4. Let your children exercise their balance and climb the trees on the beach.


5. While you have a real cocktail or a mocktail in La Plage Sunset Bar and Restaurant in Corong Corong, the kids can take a dip in their pool to beat the heat!

6. Beach combing during the early morning when the tide is low is fun and oh-so-interesting for the young ones! Say hello to local doggies, too!

7. Schedule a Skipper Charters tour for an experience like no other of the pristine waters and islands around El Nido, Palawan. Travel Tip: Make sure to book the Nilapacan tour to see the clearest water in the whole world!

8. Another kid-friendly pool to swim for the kids would be in Lio Villas Resort. My kids loved playing with the kids of the owners, chasing the neighbors chicken. Oh, life’s simple pleasures!

Do you have any other ideas for kids that I missed? Please share! I may re-visit El Nido soon!

Air Asia Philippines flies to Puerto Princesa, Palawan from Manila. From Puerto Princesa, take the 5-hour van ride to El Nido.
