Corong-Corong Beach is a laid-back spot in El Nido where most of the resorts and hotels are more affordable. This beach is known for its beautiful sunset but its sunrise is far from being short of beauty. The thick clouds surrounding the beach gets a fiery look as the sun gradually hits them with its morning rays. Looking at the clouds’ blazing color that is painted along the calm and quiet beach is definitely a wonderful morning greeting.
The beach’s sand is clearly not white like most of the popular beaches in El Nido. There are plenty of dry seaweeds and crab holes but it’s clean. The number of parked boats is very few compared to El Nido’s town proper so you’ll have a greater space for swimming. The number of resorts is few and their gap is wide. There are even some residential houses that gives a clear indication that it’s not that commercialized yet. All of these reasons equate to a quieter and more peaceful environment.
During our short morning tour around the beach, we noticed that there was almost no one else around. We hopped on an empty boat to relax and to get a better-elevated view of the beach. It was fun to see the group of blue crablets rushing to hide as we get closer to them. The batch of crabs hiding in our every step looked like a ripple. When we got hungry, we went to one of the cheap restaurants at the beachfront and had a great time having breakfast. The beach’s fresh air and serene atmosphere made our morning coffee experience more pleasant.
What I see as the main factors for considering a stay here are the low-cost resorts, less crowd and its accessibility to the town proper. Corong-Corong Beach is only about 1.5km to the town proper and we had a leisure walk going back and forth there during our visit. Cheaper food won’t be a problem here as well because El Nido Public Market is located at its main entry point. It’s definitely a decent low-budget place to stay at which I would consider again if we get another chance to visit El Nido.
