Our 10 Day/9 Night Palawan Island Hopper Adventure offers up the best island hopping experiences in Palawan, one of the most incredible island hopping destinations in the world. Raw, rugged, and largely unpopulated, Palawan is referred to in the Philippines as “the last frontier” due to the fact that is is mostly wild and untouched.
You’ll start your tour off on the lush mountainous island of Coron, taking in stunning hidden lakes, lagoons and some top notch snorkelling spots. Next we head off to neighbouring hot spot El Nido where you will enjoy some of the very best island hopping in the world, let alone the Philippines. Marvel at the dramatic limestone cliffs, the incredible corals and sea life and the almost unbeliveable lagoons and hidden beaches you’ve ever seen. We finish the tour off with a final stop in Palawan’s capital city, Puerto Princesa. Watch as the scenery changes from the dramatic limestone cliffs of Northern Palawan, to tropical jungles and green mountains covered in lush vegetation. Like the rest of Palawan, the beach is never too far away and Puerto Princesa offers yet another great island hopping experience in beautiful Honda Bay. Don’t forget your camera charger at home! We will be hitting up some of the most stunning scenic landscapes in Asia on the 10 Day Palawan Island Hopper tour!
You will arrive at Busuanga Airport, on the island of Coron, midafternoon to late evening the first day. Our guide will meet you at the airport and take you back to our awesome accommodations in the islands main town. The first night we get the group familiarized with our surroundings and give you a rundown of what to expect over the next 10 days and 9 nights. The fun in the sun begins Day 2 as we hit the water for our first island hopping tour, taking in the beautiful and dramatic sights of Coron. Day 3 is a free day for you to spend as you please. Laze the day away on the beach, take a soak in the natural hot springs, or participate in one of the many incredible island hopping tours available in Coron.
Early in the morning of Day 4 we board a small plane in Coron (or a ferry boat in low season) for the 30 minute trip to El Nido (3.5 hours via ferry in low season). We spend our first day familiarizing ourselves with the town before we hit the beach for dinner and a little beach bar hopping. Day 5 the group embarks on the legendary “Tour A”, an island-hopping adventure through some of El Nido’s most stunning islands, beaches and lagoons. Day 6 is free for you to explore the beaches, islands and jungles of this incredible tropical wonderland. Day 7 we head back out on the water for the incredible “Tour C”. There is no shortage of sights to behold here in El Nido, one of the most beautiful island destinations in the world, let alone the Philippines.
