There is a cool little spot in Corong-Corong beach for someone who wants to just lounge all day, enjoy spectacular sunsets, along with some good music, drinks and food. I tell everyone about this place called La Plage. It is one of my favorite places in El Nido, as well as my daughter’s. Its spacious grounds, dogs, and shallow beach is good for kids who like to run around, chase after dogs and pups, and go dipping in the water.
We lived in Corong-Corong for the past eight months and we walk to La Plage when we want to eat. This part of El Nido directly faces west and its cushions make for a relaxing place to lay down and sip Pinacoladas, Thai Mojitos, and Mango Sex on the Beach. The place is owned and ran by a French couple, Bastien and Alec, along with some Filipino and French staff.
They hold parties with DJs and sometimes live music too. We were there for New Year and had such a great time.
In Corong-Corong, there aren’t a lot of restaurants to go to. There are Greenviews Resort and Restaurant and Stunning Vistas Resort and Restaurant, but other than that, there isn’t anything else. Through the months, a few little places have cropped up, like Ailyn’s Beach Resort and Sunset Bar as well as the little bar of Talindak Beach Cottages, but amongst all of these places, La Plage remains to be my and my daughter’s favorite.
If you are coming from El Nido town proper on a tricycle, look for this sign and this part of the road:
La Plage is located on the right. Tricycle fare is Php15 per person.
If you are coming from Puerto Princesa, look for this sign and this part of the road, on your left:
Don’t think you are lost but you will have to go through a little dirt path to get to La Plage.
And this is what you will find:
With seating and a view like this, how can one not like this place? My daughter absolutely loves this place. She herself asks me to come here and have dinner or go swimming or just hang out. She loves the owners, Bastien and Alec, all the dogs, the cushions, and a lot of open space.
So many times, so many sunsets, and this is just one of those:
The menu changes every time, depending on what is available at the market, but here is what you can expect:
