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.

Once in El Nido, hail down a tricycle and let the local vibes take over. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the 45-minute ride as you’re whisked away to Nacpan Beach, where your adventure is just getting started. At the main entrance, take a leisurely 200m stroll to the left. Keep your eyes peeled for the Mad Monkey sign – that’s where the adventure begins!
