Where Is The Las Cabanas Beach Zipline?

The Las Cabanas Zipline is located about 15 minutes south from El Nido Town on Las Cabanas Beach.  With that being said, despite how easy the drive is to the Las Cabanas Zipline, finding the actual entrance can be a bit more confusing.  However, this is only a problem if you drive yourself.

How To Get To Las Cabanas Beach From El Nido Town?

Traveling to Las Cabanas Beach From El Nido Town is quite simple thanks to how close they are located to each other. In addition, the ride is along a nice paved highway where you will arrive at The Vanilla Beach Shopping Center. 

Tricycle -This is the most common way to reach the Las Cabanas Zipline from El Nido Town. There are tricycle drivers located all over the city who are more than willing to make the drive. Expect to pay around 100 -150 pesos for a tricycle from El Nido Town to the Las Cabanas Beach Zipline.  The tricycle will drop you off outside of the newly built Vanilla Beach Shopping Center which is the entrance to Las Cabanas Beach. This is where you can walk through the shopping center for easy access to the beach. There will be a McDonalds in the front so it shouldn’t be too hard to spot.

Motorbike – Another option to reach Las Cabanas Beach from El Nido town is to simply take your own motorbike. Although it is not financially beneficial to rent the bike for just one day in order to ride to Las Cabanas Beach because taking a tricycle would be cheaper, it is a quite pleasant ride if you’ve already rented one.

Motorbikes can be rented for about 300 -400 pesos (which is approximately $6 – $8 USD) per day and it is possible to haggle for discounted rates if you are renting the motorbike for extended periods of time.

Unlike taking a tricycle, those who drive their own motorbike have the option to ride their bikes up the steep hill where the zipline is located as opposed to walking up. However, beware that the hill is a dirt path that is quite difficult to ride up, especially for new motorbike riders. To be specific, you will need a dirt bike or Motocross bike in order to make it up. Trust me when I say, this cannot be done on a typical scooter.  

You will find the entrance to the dirt road on your first right just past the Vanilla Beach Shopping Center coming from El Nido.  Once you’re on the dirt path just make your first left and continue along until you see the massive hill on your right side.

On the other hand, you always have the option to park your motorbike at the shopping center parking lot instead, if you don’t feel comfortable riding on the dirt road.    

What Hours Is The Las Cabanas Beach Zipline Open? 

The El Nido Zipline is open from 8 am until 5:30 pm.  I suggest arriving around 4:30 pm, so that you can enjoy the thrill of the El Nido Zipline and then after relax and watch the perfect golden Las Cabanas Beach sunset. 

How Much Does The Las Cabanas Beach Zipline Cost?

The Las Cabanas Beach Zipline price changes depending on what package you order.  The packages are as follows:

Sitting Position (One Way) | 500 pesos

Sitting Postion (Roundtrip) | 900 pesos

Superman Position (One Way) | 700 pesos

Superman Position (Roundtrip) | 1100 pesos

Mix Of Both (Roundtrip) | 1000 pesos


Although most people choose the Superman Position because it looks cooler, I actually prefer the sitting position. Not only does it all you to see more as you rotate 360° but, it also allows you to flip upside down which offers a truly unique El Nido Zipline experience.

The Las Cabanas Zipline has lines running to and from Depeldet Island. Therefore, you can either book one way or roundtrip tickets.

If you book the one-way tickets you will have to walk down from Delpeldet Island across the sandbar that connects the two beaches and along Las Cabanas Beach in order to reach the main road where the Vanilla Beach Shopping Center is located.  However, the walk is quite scenic so most people just choose to book the one-way ticket.

Frequently Asked Questions

No there is no entrance fee for Las Cabanas beach. You can simply walk back through the shopping center until you reach the beach free of charge.

Unfortunately, there is not a Nacpan zipline yet. However, with all the new renovations happening on Nacpan Beach, this could possibly change sometime in the near future. 

Can You Fly A Drone At The Las Cabanas Beach Zipline?

For the time being yes, drones are permitted despite obvious safety concerns for anyone on the zipline. With that being said, Zipline Adventure Inc (who are the owners of the El Nido Zipline), have their own drown and offer paid drone footage of you as you go down the zipline for 400 pesos. The videos they take are quite amazing so I highly recommend this for anyone that wants video proof that they were brave enough to go down the zipline.
