Sunset Dining at Bella Vita
We had just checked in at Coco Beach Resort and thought it would be good to stretch our legs a bit and check out the Corong Corong Beach. Since it was approaching lunch time, we were starting to feel quite hungry. When the scent of freshly baked pizza started to linger around the beach, it was too hard to say no to a bite of that. After many days with local food, it was nice to finally dig in to some comfort food again!
Bella Vita is situated along Corong Corong Beach, south of El Nido town. It’s a narrow beach during the high tide and offers a long shallow walk out in the water before it gets deep enough for swimming. Due to that, the beach hosts a lot of “

The view of the sunset
The scenic view is the thing that will have you asking yourself, “Do I really need to go back to home and work?”. It is simply extraordinary. It would have been even better without all the bangka there, but that can be easily forgiven.
The bay introduces you to the glimpse of the islands just outside of El Nido. It also gives you a nice view over Merimeg-meg beach where Las Cabanas is. While they say that the sunset view from Las Cabanas is among the best in the world, we were very happy with the one offered by Corong Corong beach.
As we were devouring the pizza and slowly sipping away on the icy cold beer, we decided to come back around 6pm so that we could catch the sunset. And we didn’t leave disappointed! The clouds were like small cotton balls hanging about in the sky, and with the rays of sun backlighting them, it created some stunning photos. Below is a short timelapse of the sunset we saw and fell in love with.
The food and service
After waiting for about 15 minutes, our pizza was served. Freshly made to order, the thin crust pizza was baked perfectly. The mozzarella cheese melted so beautifully as we each tore a slice apart to savor. Nothing like a piping hot pizza for an indulgent meal! It definitely met our expectations, though Viktor wished that they would use a little less tomato sauce for the base. Aside from pizzas, the restaurant also serves a selection of appetizers and pasta.
The great food, together with the stunning view and serene suroundings, wrapped up our evening nicely.
It was a real struggle each time we had to leave Bella Vita and next time we end up around El Nido, we will come and visit again.
