Zip-line Island hopping in El Nido, Palawan
Ever been zip-lining? Ever gone on a zip-line over water and to another island? Well in El Nido you can do this. At Las Cabanas Beach there’s a 750-meter long zip line that allows you to island hop between El Nido an island called Depeldet.
Prices for the zip-line vary from 500 to 1,100 PhP. It all depends on the amount of trips you want to do and the way you want to be seated. These are the options:
- Sitting position – One way – 500 PhP
- Sitting position – Return – 900 PhP
- Superman position – One way – 700 PhP
- Superman position – Return – 1100 PhP
- Combination of both positions – Return – 1000 PhP
The views from the zipline are amazing and it’s definitely a great experience not to miss. We recommend to do a one-way trip and walk back since the water between the islands is shallow and you’re surrounded by beautiful scenery.

How to get to the El Nido Zip line?
There are a few ways to get there. If you’ve rented a scooter simply drive out of the town and look for the signs for Las Cabanas beach. It’s about 15 mins/5km from the town proper. Alternatively, you can take a jeepney or a tricycle there too, it won’t be that expensive or take too long. From the beach, there’s a small hike up to the top of the hill.
In our opinion, we think it’s best to go just before sunset or when the tide is in. It offers the best views. Afterwards grab a seat and a drink and enjoy the sunset on Las Cabanas beach. There’s also a great viewpoint on the way back to El Nido town that’s worth a stop.
