The Philippines’ Hidden Beach in Palawan has once again been recognized as one of the world’s most beautiful beaches by the popular travel site, Conde Nast Traveler (CNT). Nestled within the El Nido Resorts in the Mimaropa region, this secluded paradise is a must-visit destination for beach lovers and adventure seekers alike.

In the latest best-of-list released by CNT on July 6, 2023, Hidden Beach was among the 29 prime destinations selected for travelers. This isn’t the first time the “secret” beach has received such an accolade. It was previously named by the same publication in the Top 10 of the World’s Best Beaches pre-pandemic and in the Top 20 even during the lockdown.

Lizzie Pook, the author of the CNT feature, beautifully describes the allure of a good beach: “There’s something about a good beach that enlivens the senses: the briny scent of salt in the air, the calming murmur of waves, the gentle nip of sand whipped up by the soft breeze. A favorite beach is like a favorite poem —individual, important, and something that makes our hearts sing, and now more than ever we are dreaming of days spent wriggling our toes in the sand and wallowing in salty water.”

Hidden Beach, with its bone-white sand and pristine waters, is no exception. It’s not quite so hidden anymore, but it still makes its mark as one of the world’s best. The beach is surrounded by imposing limestone cliffs and separated from the turquoise ocean by a small keyhole-like opening. Visitors must climb through this opening to access the lagoon, adding a touch of adventure to the experience.

Pook recommends staying at the award-winning El Nido Resorts to fully enjoy the beauty of Hidden Beach and its surroundings. The beach is part of the famed El Nido Resorts in the archipelagic province of Palawan, known for its stunning natural beauty and biodiversity.

In 2022, Palawan’s Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park was specially cited by CNT in its inclusion of the Philippines among the 40 Most Beautiful Countries in the World. This recognition, along with the latest accolade for Hidden Beach, further cements Palawan’s status as a top destination for travelers seeking natural beauty and unique experiences.

Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or planning your first trip to the Philippines, Hidden Beach in Palawan is a destination that should not be missed. Its natural beauty, coupled with the adventure of reaching it, makes it a truly unique and unforgettable experience. So, are you ready to discover what’s behind the keyhole?
