Quiet Place Away From El Nido Town, Palawan

Upon hearing that el Nido, Palawan might be a bit crowded, noisy and touristy, Jerry and I decided to find a quiet place away from the busy town center. After a quick search, we've found a cute beachfront cottage that seemed to have our names on it. We found the stay so awesome, that we dedicated a whole blog post to it. :)

Quiet Place Away From El Nido - Garden Bay Beach Resort

Quiet Place in El Nido

This quiet place away from el Nido town is called the Garden Bay Beach Resort. This place is a 15-minutes walk away from the centre. It might be that you find it a bit tiring to walk there after a bumpy 5-hour van drive from Puerto Princesa to El Nido, but believe me, those extra minutes are well worth it as you'll be able to make up for them at the resort! While others were whining about the busy town and the scams that usually come along with it, we experienced el Nido as a beautifully calm and relaxing place! So what does this place offer?

The Garden Bay Beach Resort offers beachfront and off-beach bamboo cottages with a lovely terrace in the front, air condition and a spacious bedroom and bathroom. As you see below, we really enjoyed hanging out on the terrace and sipping the freshly prepared mango and pineapple smoothies. Usually, in the morning hours, we were visited by a cute cat, making the atmosphere even better. The only thing that was not working properly was the wifi. It was weak and only available at the reception. But honestly speaking, at one point it makes one happy not being able to be connected to the world all the time, so the paradise can be enjoyed instead.

While we first thought that we would need to walk those 15 minutes every day for every meal we wanted, it turned out they served extremely delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner too. There were meat, fish and veggie meals available. For breakfast we usually had mango pancakes or granola cup with fruits.

What made this stay so special were the numerous hammocks at the beach and even a picturesque swing. Definitely the perfect "tools" to relax and observe the beautiful nature. Needless to say, at the beach, there were usually only 2-3 people to see, sometimes we had the whole beach even for ourselves. Another handy feature of this place is that it's a really nice place to swim. :)

Another thing which made it convenient to stay here is the fact that they organise everything for you - the el Nido A, B, C, D group or private tours, motorcycle rental, etc. So there is really no need to walk back to the city each time you need something!

The cherry on top was that this stay turned out to be a perfect spot to savouring the magical sunsets. Just imagine, lying in the hammock and watching those colours every evening.

The good thing is, if you are not planning to sleep over at this place, you can still enjoy some of their facilities, as lying in one of their hammocks, swimming or eating delicious food by only visiting the place during the day! We highly recommend so if you want to escape the crowds!

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    Do not invest in any trading platform, there is nothing such as get rich quick, it doesn't always end well. I was also a victim to this kind of scam. An Asian girl introduced me to ibitminers and i got really deep into their shit and all i can say is these scammers are good at what they do. I was allowed to withdraw a little amount which i believed was to build my trust but they sucked me dry and i never got my capital after all was said and done. I lost a ton of asset and when i reported to local authorities i was told since crypto is untraceable, there is nothing they can do about it. I couldn't get any help from them until i contracted the service of a professional ethical hacker. He hacked into the eth wallet address i made payment to and retrieved my stolen crypto and he showed me the transaction history of these scammers, I was in shock.

    A revolution in banking has been brought about by the digital era, with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin taking center stage. But there are also risks associated with this emerging field, the most frightening of which being the possibility of losing digital assets. This is when Osecybersailing and it's team steps in like a shining knight, equipped with the formidable weapon of Bitcoin recovery. My valuable Bitcoin was stolen via a technical error, leaving me hopeless. My dreams were almost dashed by the cold reality of irreversible blockchain transactions. However, there was a ray of hope that emerged from the shadows when I came across Osecybersailing and it's team. Equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience, their team of professionals painstakingly navigated the blockchain maze, following even the smallest digital traces of my misplaced funds. The fact that my Bitcoin appeared, safe and sound, back in my wallet in a very short amount of time was a credit to their commitment and competence. It restored my faith in the security and reliability of the crypto ecosystem. But my testimony is more than just a celebration of Osecybersailing technical abilities. It also serves as a rallying cry for ethical cryptocurrency stewardship.
    If you find yourself lost in the depths of lost Bitcoin, facebook Account and Whatsapp hacking to check if your partner is cheating, then let Osecybersailing and it's team guide you towards the light of redemption.

    Just like so many other people, I warmly give my gratitude to Dr Isikolo for his help and solution to my problems. I was blinded with jealousy and insecurities, and it created chaos in my relationship with my fiancé and he couldn’t resist my troubles and he left me. After he I realized I had gone too far with everything I was doing wrong to him only for him to relocate to another city and I lost every means of trying to reach him and apologize. At this point I knew I needed help to get him back, so I had to contact Dr Isikolo. He showed much concern, and I told him everything and agreed I was at fault, and he assured me of getting him back and restoring the love and happiness we shared which he did. Just as promised, after 48 hours Thompson called me and I apologized for everything and he invited me over so that we can make things up and be together again. Thank you Dr Isikolo for everything and your sincerity in helping people. Just text him via WhatsApp +2348133261196 or email him via: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com

    DR ISIKOLO IS WHOM I GOT HELP FROM TO SAVE MY HOME
    I lost our marriage and beautiful home wrecked by unhappiness seeing my wife walk away over the lies she was fed with and insecurities which were never true. I vowed from the beginning never to be a cheat and stood my ground to ensure I built a happy home but unfortunately she never trusted me enough. I wandered for months trying to get her back and sought help from various sources including her family intervention but never yielded success. I came in contact with Dr Isikolo who I doubted at the earlier stage we got in contact with. I had to keep hope alive and complied with the procedures just the way he explained everything to me. He assured me of her return which happened after two to three days and i am yet to find words to express how happy and appreciative i am knowing my son and I had his mom back home to us. I am telling everyone about Dr Isikolo and his kind heart helping people. He won't fail you if you try him out. Contact him via email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com You can also WhatsApp him on +2348133261196

    Christine Allen (Friday, 09 February 2024 20:45)

    Hi peeps. My name is Christine Allen and I have had tough and horrible experiences in my past relationships and I indeed waited till I met my husband and after we met, we fell in love and got married. After two years of our Union, he changed and started acting weird and eventually left me and our son. I Did all I could to get him back but all was fruitless. I came in contact with the comments and what everyone was saying about Dr Isikolo. I reached out to him and he responded and gave me his best effort and support to make my marriage work again. He was the one who made it known to me that my husband was taken from me by another woman and he cast a love reunion spell that reunited us back together and he came back home to me and my boy. Indeed no one out there has lied about Dr Isikolo and his good works. My husband came back home 48 hours after he did the work for as promised. Reach out to him now and be assured he will help you. You will have to email him now via: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or text him on WhatsApp him on +2348133261196

    I almost lost my marriage when I watched my wife turned into a total stranger and left the kids and I. I was so furious knowing I had done everything possible to ensure I sustained my marriage as a father and husband. The terrible fights we had traumatized me and I couldn’t function properly as a man. I kept on trying to find out what made her did what she did which made me contacted Dr Isikolo. I was surprised to have found out that she was under a huge manipulation from a man who wanted to ruin my marriage with her and take her away from me. Dr Isikolo had to intervene and fixed the problem thereby ensuring she was rescued from the claws of the dark magic charm they used on her. Knowing that I was able to get my family together again with the help of Dr Isikolo gives me joy and I am forever thankful to him.
