By motorbike: When coming from town or any northern El Nido destinations (Nacpan, Duli, Dewil, Sibaltan…) take the national highway towards the south, pass the market in Corong Corong and continue through the commercial portion.

Walk through the commercial center till you get to the beach. Turn left and walk for around 5mins.
