El Nido Nightlife, Philippines

Being in an island far from the hustle and bustle of the main city, one may think that El Nido is only for the beach lovers. However time and again, guests have been proven that even a town as remote as El Nido can come to life at night. The fast-growing and almost unstoppable tourism of Palawan has led to the establishment of a good number of bars and restaurants in El Nido offering a good time for both the expatriates and the locals.

The island setting is one of the reasons why a Cuyo local built the famous bar Balay Tubay Bistro & Galeri. It serves the coldest beer and the best food that come along with it in their most affordable form. A single bottle of beer may cost as low as $1.50. A perfect ambiance is set up by a group of local artists and musicians using indigenous materials and local El Nido artistry. On top of it, nightly the local group Islanen and other local bands dish out rock, reggae and acoustic music ranging from original compositions to Filipino, reggae, classics including covers of the Marley hits and classic rock tunes of the Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Police and U2. The participation of the locals even spices up the already fun and raucous environment. The goodness of it all is you can come as you are, no ties or coats just plain old you.

 For the perfect beach fun at night, the Blu Karrot Bar is the place to be. What could be grander than sipping or some cases gulping your favorite drink while watching the sweet and melodic splashing of waves? That can only be done in this bar by the beachfront.

The resorts of Miniloc and Lagen Island have their own unique brand of entertainment for their guests. They have set up bars offering well-known and local concoctions to the delight of their guests. The non-alcoholic drinkers can have fun while staying in these bars until the wee hours of the morning.

Apart from that, there is also good food and some pool tables. The best thing is that when you need to rest after a hang-over, your cottage is just around the corner.

The overall beauty of the islands of El Nido is its main attraction. However, nightlife that has been in a complete upswing cannot be taken for granted. While Palawan and El Nido spells beach fun, surely its nightlife scene has followed suit, so do not be left behind.
