Roughly 32 kilometers from Puerto Princesa airport lies one of the city's best-kept secrets: Nagtabon Beach. It's not on the Palawan group tour route and attracts mostly local tourists on weekends and independent travelers. Tucked away in a cove and nestled in a thick forested area, Nagtabon has cream-colored fine sand, clear waters, and from October to February, beginner-friendly surf waves. Expect shallow waters close to shore, perfect for wading and for kids to enjoy. The seabed is sandy with a gradual slope. A nice beach for a day-out. Cheap thatched native huts are available to rent along the beach.
