Lio Beach El Nido really took us by surprise. It was one of those spots we didn’t plan on visiting so we were so happy we did. Here’s all you need to know.
Lio Beach El Nido – An Up And Coming Hotspot
How To Get To Lio Beach El Nido
Lio Beach El Nido is only about 15 minutes away from El Nido town by Tricycle. The Tricycle ride should cost no more than 300 PHP one way, but you can probably agree on a 500 PHP return fare. They don’t normally don’t let more than 3 in a tricycle, we pushed for 4.
However, there is also a daily shuttle bus going from El Nido town to Lio Beach.
What To Expect At Lio Beach El Nido
It was originally the restaurant ‘shaka’ that brought us to this location. We’d previously ate in this chain of restaurants before and was craving some delicious vegan food (and a smoothie bowl).
When we arrived, we were completely surprised at how beautiful it was, especially at sunset! Right now, the beach is not that crowded as it is an up and coming spot in El Nido. They have a few beach chairs that you can use for free throughout the day.
Lio beach is a huge strip of coastline, with continuous music playing in the background from the relatively new bars and restaurants. So you won’t be short of an ice cold drink and delicious food and snacks.
The area around Lio Beach is packed with cool, quirky shops where you can buy souvenirs or hip, stylish clothing.
Many shops surrounding the area are still under construction so we really believe this will be the up and coming hotspot of El Nido. The vibe at Lio Beach is just what every traveler craves. You can’t knock a smoothie on a spacious beach with a swing and a sunset.
