PUERTO  PRINCESA

Welcome to one of Southeast Asia’s last frontiers – Puerto Princesa - the exotic, exciting tropical paradise of Palawan in the Philippines. Consisting of more than 7,000+ islands strung out in a chain between the China and Sulu Seas, Palawan is a showcase of unspoiled natural beauty, environmentally pleasing and some of the best beaches you will visit on earth.

 

Legend attributes the name "Puerto Princesa" to a princess-like maiden who in the early days is said to have roamed around the place on certain nights of the year. On the other hand, practical people attribute the name to the geographical advantages of the place as a seaport naturally protected the whole year round.

 

Pristine, powdery white sand beaches are found in almost all islands and islets in the city. Strands of white sand beaches huge the coves and bays of Puerto Princesa's coastline, providing a scenic contrast to the green canopies and the emerald or blue waters. The islands on the nearby Honda Bay offer beach lovers uncrowded havens so rarely found anywhere else.

 

A must-see for first time visitors and tourists in Palawan. The longest navigable underground river and reputedly the most beautiful subterranean river in the world. Its main attraction is an 8.2 kilometer Underground River that winds through a spectacular cave before emptying into the South China Sea. 

 

Just a few minutes north of the city proper, hop onto a boat and go Island hopping at Honda Bay located in the

mid-eastern coast of the city. Take your pick from dozens of white sand beaches. Dive sites abound here, as the entire area is studded with patches of coral and sand. Submerged reefs may be found close to the surface down to 24 meters. Small reef and aquarium fish can also be found here. Among the well-known dive sites here are Pandan Island which has good reefs near small drop-offs, Arreceffi Island

  and Panglima Reef where coral boulders and gray reef sharks are found. Each island at Honda Bay offers different thrills. Snake Island has a sandbar that slithers on the surface of the sea, much like the critter that bears its name. It is best for snorkeling, swimming or simply basking in the sand. It can be reached in an hour by pumpboat Bat Island, only 20 minutes away from Sta. Lourdes wharf,  is literally teeming with bats which make their way out at sundown to look for food in the mainland.

 

There is also a tiny pendant on this magnificent chain of islands called Huma, a premium luxury hideaway that offers the

discerning traveler a personalized experience of exploration, discovery combined with beauty and endless pampering.

 

 

Hidden Luxury Islands and Resorts will definitely spoil and seduce you into wanting to stay longer - Forever
