Best of Palawan

Prices from AED10,895 per person/ sharing

To say Palawan is a beach bum's fantasy is an understatement. Sailing the length of the province­ from the north to the southern tip of the main island brings you up close and personal with paradise in countless forms: from the coral-fringed dreamscapes of the Calamianes and the karst limestone formations of El Nido to the wind-swept shorelines of central Palawan and the pristine sandbars of Balabac.

Take this 7-day day tour to explore the best of Palawan.

Day 1: Manila - Puerto Princesa

We depart Manila in the early morning for Puerto Princesa, the capital city of Palawan. We then transfer by van to the small coastal village of Sabang, located at the foot of St. Paul's Mountain range and the gateway to the Underground River. Rest of the day at leisure. Overnight at Daluyon Beach & Mountain Resort.

Day 2: Underground River

After breakfast, proceed to your Underground River Tour by taking a motorized outrigger boat to St. Paul’s Bay and the 3901-hectare natural park of limestone and marble cliffs towering the surrounding bay. Explore the park’s awe- inspiring underground river on paddled canoes. Admire the dome-shaped cathedral-like caverns of this river that stretches up to 8 kilometres underneath the limestone cliffs. The stalagmites rising from the water create an eerie atmosphere that borders on the scary, as these sights are coupled with the cries of bats that live within the caves. Enjoy a picnic lunch in a seaside resort. Overnight at Daluyon Resort.

Day 3: Honda Bay Island Hopping

Transfer to Honda Bay, which has several islands and islets located off the mainland of Puerto Princesa namely Bat Island, home to thousands of bats that live on trees and fly out at night in search of food; Snake Island is so named because of its shape and other islands such as Pandan, Starfish, and Luli.
