Duli Beach – Best Surf Beach In Palawan

As I mentioned in my write up about Nacpan Beach, the further north you head away along the west coast of Palawan from El Nido, the stronger the surf seems to get. And Duli Beach was no exception. When we first rolled up, all you could really see and hear was this beautiful blue water crashing up on to the shore. Just like Nacpan, I was quite intrigued by this as Palawan is not usually synonymous with surfing. Yet here was another beach that had waves that were easily big enough and consistent enough to surf on.

The sand was a beautiful golden colour and a very fine texture and from the shore to the water, it was at least 30 to 40 metres. The beach itself stretches on for over 2 kms. The waves were consistently 1-2 metres high and were almost perfect as they broke. This is definitely a better place for surfing than Nacpan if you are that way inclined. This place is definitely more geared up for water sports as you are able to hire surfboards,  kayaks and other water sports equipment. However, this isn’t really a place for scuba diving although there is island hopping available.

Duli Beach Resort

There were even fewer people at Duli Beach than there was at Nacpan.  However, there are a few more little restaurants that were very much local style. We decided to take a walk south along the beach and to my amazement, there was a resort at the end of the beach. The resort is called Duli Beach Resort and is owned by a young Dutch couple who have been there for about four years. The resort isn’t a luxury resort by any stretch of the imagination. However, they have about 8 bungalows that had open fronts and a verandah. They had a nice little restaurant and although we didn’t eat there, the menu looked alright. This is the only place on Duli Beach that has accommodation.

If you are looking for a truly relaxing beach that isn’t crawling with tourists, then you must visit Duli Beach. If you are a surfer, even better! Either way, with beautiful golden sand and the bluest water you will ever see, you won’t be disappointed. You can also check out my Vlog which will give you a real good look and feel for the place.

There wasn’t much shade on the beach aside from this hut. As you can see, the beach and the water is so clean.

You can see from the photo how much shore front there is. This is one of the cleanest beaches I have seen in the Philippines.
