Where is Mad Monkey Nacpan Beach?

We are located 45mins from El Nido town. The property sits right in front of the ocean, cradled by coconut trees between the famous twin beaches of Calitang and Nacpan, next to a humble fishing village.


How to get to Mad Monkey Nacpan Beach

To get to Mad Monkey Nacpan Beach, the cheapest and most common route is to fly to Puerto Princesa since most major domestic carriers fly here daily. Another option is flying directly to El Nido via AirSwift – however direct flights are more expensive and are only advisable if you book your tickets far in advance.

Should you choose to fly into Puerto Princesa, you may take a bus (8hrs) or van (5-6hrs) to El Nido. When you reach El Nido town, you can take a tricycle to Nacpan Beach which will take you around 45 minutes.

After arriving at the main entrance, walk to the left for about 200 meters until you see the Mad Monkey Nacpan Beach signage.

Great place to meet people and have fun
Had an amazing time at Mad Monkey. Bar and reception staff are super friendly and helpful. Also a great team of hostel reps here too! Jack and Mart are so good at getting everyone involved in the games in the evening and the DJ killed it.Had the most fun there couldn't imagine better reps.I went on the Island hopping with Mart and had one of the best days here on Philippines. A full 7 hour day trip , great music, and great vibes. We had a fun moment in one of the caves there- we we sharing our stories with the group - funny and touching moment. I highly recommend Mad Monkey to everyone.Best regards/lama girl :)

Jack and MartThis was my very first hostel experience and was totally blown away with the energy level, professionalism and positive party fibes from Jack, Mart, Jessica and the rest of the Mad Monkey staff.What I believe they can work on is a better wifi signal. This may he out if they’re hands though.If you are looking for a frosh party style of hostel, Mad Monkey definitely takes the cake. Jack and Mart are the best hosts! I don’t know how they do it! It takes a certain person to do what they do!Also, would highly recommend the island tour. This started from 10:00am and finished 5:00pm. To summarize, we visited 5 islands, went snorkeling, visited a secret cave and had an amazing lunch. Jack hosted this and killed it! The boat crew were also amazing!
