“The best beach in El Nido”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

The clear waters besides a rock formation was inviting, this place was ideal for a swim and the view of the islands was awesome. Just sat there staring at a distance and wonder of the beauty Nature has endowed this place.

“give it a miss”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

didnt like the over commercialization going on at this beach, very ordinary to be honest, and the beach is a bit steep.

“tourist trap”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

nothing to do but buy expensive drinks from a ECO TOURISM BAR... really?...

A lot better to go to any other beach with less people (here all boats stop so they get their commission...) and better views.

“Privatization Everywhere”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

I really enjoyed Seven Commando during my past trips to El Nido, but during my last trip, we were told that we can't dock on the beach anymore and just had to stay away from the beach because it has been purchased and will be turned/has been turned into a private resort. Same goes for more than 50% of the islets in the area. This is a travesty and definitely makes me think twice about going to El Nido again

“Big wide shore great for beach football or ultimate frisbee!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Loved the natural shade of the trees in the area. Cottages are also for rent for a minimal fee. There's a bar near where the boats dock but the drinks are a bit expensive.
