"To avoid the crowds and experience Marikit-Na Beach at its most serene, plan to visit early in the morning when the water is at its calmest and the beach is less populated. Also, don't miss out on the opportunity to ask local fishers about hidden spots nearby; they often know the best times and places to enjoy secluded swimming areas."

What is Marikit-Na Beach?

Marikit-Na Beach is an exquisite strip of paradise nestled in the idyllic surroundings of El Nido, Palawan. Known for its powdery white sands, crystal clear turquoise waters, and the lush greenery that frames the beach, Marikit-Na is a lesser-known treasure waiting to be discovered. It's one of those serene spots where you can indulge in the warmth of the sun without the hustle and bustle of the more popular beaches in El Nido. Trust me, it's one of those corners in the archipelago where Mother Nature has been particularly generous with her beauty.

History of Marikit-Na Beach

The history of Marikit-Na Beach is deeply intertwined with El Nido's past, which is a story of evolution from a sleepy fishing village to a sought-after tourist destination. While Marikit-Na Beach does not have a richly documented history, like some historical sites, it has certainly seen the quiet passing of time and the gentle tread of the few locals and visitors over the years. With the rise of tourism in Palawan, Marikit-Na Beach has retained its untouched allure, standing as a testament to the natural heritage of the Philippines. I've heard from the elders here that the beach was named 'Marikit-na' meaning 'beautiful' in Filipino, by the locals who were captivated by its pristine charm.

Why is Marikit-Na Beach Important?

Marikit-Na Beach is important not just because of its stunning natural aesthetics but also because it symbolizes the ecological wealth of the region. It's a living example of preserved natural beauty, a vital habitat for marine life, and an ecotourism spot that helps promote sustainable travel. For the locals, this beach is a source of pride and a slice of tranquility that reflects their respect for the environment. As someone who has seen how overcrowding can impact popular tourist spots, I can say that Marikit-Na's relative obscurity has been its saving grace, allowing it to remain an unspoiled haven.

Things to Do & See at Marikit-Na Beach

At Marikit-Na Beach, the activities center around the natural environment. You can spend your time sunbathing on the soft sand or swimming in the clear waters, which are as inviting as a natural swimming pool. Snorkeling is another favorite pastime here, as the visibility is usually excellent, revealing a vivid underwater world teeming with marine life. And let's not forget about the simple joy of a beach stroll, where every step reveals a new perspective of the island's stunning scenery.

  • Photography: For photography enthusiasts, the landscape of Marikit-Na Beach is a dreamy canvas. The juxtaposition of emerald greens and the vivid blue hues of the water create a vibrant display.

Although Marikit-Na Beach may not feature the extensive facilities found at larger resorts, its charm lies in its simplicity and the peaceful atmosphere it offers. But remember, part of its beauty comes from being a hidden jewel, so I always remind visitors to treat it with respect, leaving nothing but footprints and taking nothing but memories and photographs.
