Situated on the Northern tip of Palawan, El Nido boasts of around 40 beautiful islands and islets.

Lio Beach, in particular, is within Bacuit Bay on the west coast. It’s like a treasure trove of natural and exotic wonders. Travellers can revel in its ancient limestone cliffs, witness tropical fish, corals, and sea turtles first-hand in its marine life-rich waters, and explore forests that are home to over 100 bird species.

Ang gandaaaaaaa!

In 1998, El Nido became part of the El Nido-Taytay Managed Resource Protected Area, and has since been recognized by more and more travel enthusiasts and award-giving bodies across the globe. Case in point: El Nido was recently named “Destination of the Year” by Asia CEO Awards as well as “The Best Island in the World” in a recent list by Conde Nast Traveller. It’s no surprise that tourism has been booming over the last couple years, with the number of visitors growing from 65,000 in 2013 to almost 180,000 in 2016.

If Lio Beach or El Nido has yet to be ticked off your bucket list, June 9-11 will be a great time to visit! Volume Unit Entertainment and Lio Tourism Estate by Ten Knots have collaborated for an exclusive, upcoming flagship event called Lio Beach Festival. It’s three whole days of celebrating music and art as inspired by nature, and a chance for festival-goers to try out their wide range of of eco-friendly programs and activities in one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Proceeds from ticket sales will go to environmental protection and marine conservation programs of El Nido.

You can get your Festival passes online via the official Facebook page. Just click the Book Now button. Special rates apply for Palawenos, Kids, and Groups.
