Black Island

Black Island

Black Island located in Palawan got its name because the gigantic limestone rock formation in the island's center seems gloomy and ominous from a distance. Contrary to its name, Black Island is a lovely oasis with perfect white beach and turquoise sea. It's great for those who prefer outdoor activities like trekking, cave exploration, snorkeling, or simply resting on the beach.

Snorkeling and freediving are both possible on the coral that surrounds Black Island. The island's gorgeous corals and many fish species may be enjoyed by tourists. On the island's center, a gigantic limestone rock structure leads to a network of caverns that may be explored. There are many tunnels and catacombs to discover, but only a few of them are available from the shore. Visitors may swim or cliff jump in a big cave with a pleasant body of freshwater if they like. The cave's stalactites and rock formations are stunning. It descends from the massive cave to the beach's other end, where it will pass through a tiny cave.
