Explore the wonderful islands located in the mid-eastern coast of the Puerto Princesa City. A great place for swimming and snorkeling. Discover the beauty of underwater reef and enjoy a close encounter to aquarium fish. Experience all the adventures offered by the island.
About 45-minutes north of the city, hop onto a boat and go Island hopping at Honda Bay located on the mid-eastern coast of the city. Enjoy visits to stunning islands, with white sand beaches. Each island at Honda Bay offers different adventures but Luli Island, Starfish Island and Cowrie Island are all great for swimming and snorkeling. There are dive sites nearby, as the entire area is covered with coral. Underwater reefs may be found close to the surface down to 24m. Starfish Island has the greatest population of Star Fish (Sea Stars) in all of Palawan, as evident in its name. Luli Island is actually a short term for "Lulubog - Lilitaw", which means Sink and Rise, which is what the Island does; at high tide, the island vanishes and at low tide, it resurfaces. Cowrie Island is named after the small-to-large sea snail, marine gastropod mollusc called "Cowrie". The island has numerous cabanas, a pavilion, and thatched-roof spa huts, all overlooking the sea and creating a beautiful, picturesque scene.
