“Small paradise...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Apart from the reason that it is accessible for Ipil clients, the place though can only be reached through motorboat and no shops or restaurants to go to, the beach is by yourself with few residents whom can be asked to do and get things done for us, have also enjoyed watching and playing with the turtles kept and looked after until its ready to go back to the sea.

“A Lovely beach in a Memorable Location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

A Lovely place when we visited (as part of an island-hopping tour). I hope it stays that way, and isn't "developed". This beach was on what we were told was Pinagbuyutan Island.

“Relax during the day, busy at night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This beach has beautiful views of El Nido. Sunset at the beach is wonderful! Quiet during the day, but the place hums at night, as some of the restaurants offer live music. We ate at several restaurants here during our stay.

“Beautiful beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Ipil beach is a beautiful beach, but apparently Ipil island is now owned by Manny Pacquiao, so things may change here in the future

“Idyllic and Tranquil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

This is a private beach and was told it is also owned by the owner of Ipil Travelodge. We stopped for lunch in this beach while doing Tour A. The beach is about 100m long with white sands, clear waters and interesting rock formations. A structure was being built while we were there and was also told it's meant to be the owner's beach house but would also be available to let. One thing interesting is that the caretakers were caring for some sea turtles that were hatched on the beach that would be released once they've grown enough to survive in the wild. The private, some people on kayaks were free to stop and just relax on the beach. The beach is only accessible by boat, a perfect place to take a refreshing dip in the clean, clear ocean, lay under the sun or watch the sun set.
