Lally and Abet Beach Cottages
Travel Blogs from El Nido
After the underground river, we headed up to El Nido, a beach town that's nestled between limestone cliffs in a little bay. El Nido itself is not super exciting, but it's a gateway to some nice beaches and really neat islands. We didn't do anything too interesting while we were there. On the first full day we slept in and then rented mopeds. It was …
... a beach with just ourselves, good snorkelling and a chance to explore, on my return we ventured on and found a remote spot and we beached the Kayak but were greeted by a guy running out of the forest telling us it was private island and owned by s german guy, to back him up a guy appeared with a shotgun so the diplomats we are we upped anchor and moved on but not before capsizing in our haste to leave.

TravelPod Member ReviewsLally and Abet Beach Cottages El Nido
The cottage was nice, but very stuffy despite the aircon. Electricity is timed and they do not have a generator. The CR water pressure was low. There is a beautiful garden so the garden facing room would have been better if only it had aircon (it does not!)
After 2 dissatisfied days, we moved on to Taiyo village which was far better
