Information about Payong-Payong Beach
Payong-Payong is one of the picturesque white sand beaches on Miniloc Island. The beach is a popular stop for lunch during El Nido’s Tour A island-hopping option. The idyllic setting consists of a small beach, amazing cliffs, and commanding rock formations. There are several trees dotting the island, which provide the perfect shade for picnics.
The crystal-clear waters of Payong-Payong Beach are abundant with fishes and corals perfect for snorkeling. The waves are just small and gentle, which makes it great for leisurely swimming. Because there are no hoops and volleyball nets here, there is not much to do here but just chill and rest after a hearty lunch stop. You can explore the cliffs offshore but make sure that you wear the right shoes – the rocks in El Nido are rough and sharp and Payong-Payong Beach is no exception.
