Maremegmeg Beach in El Nido has gained recognition on Lonely Planet’s list of “100 of the World’s Most Incredible Beaches” for 2024.
The site has earned a spot in Lonely Planet’s latest travel guidebook, making it a must-visit destination for travel enthusiasts this year.
Referred to as Las Cabanas Beach due to its proximity to a local resort, Lonely Planet describes it as the nearest appealing beach with an exciting sunset bar scene centered around Beach Shack and Maremegmeg Beach Bar.
Lonely Planet said one of the appealing features of Maremegmeg Beach is a zipline that extends across the water, connecting the mainland to an island offshore. This zipline provides both one-way and round-trip options, with prices set at ₱500 and ₱900, respectively. Local tricycle drivers highly endorse this experience, and the usual fare for a one-way journey covering the approximately 6-kilometer distance from El Nido is ₱150.
Recently, the Provincial Tourism Promotions and Development Office (PTPDO) said El Nido remains the province’s most popular municipal destination, attracting 518,385 visitors in 2023.
Alongside El Nido in the World’s 100 Best Beaches is also Pacifico Beach in Siargao, Surigao del Norte.
