Black Island is Palawan's biggest island in the Calamian Group of Islands, located northwest of Busuanga Island. It may have been called "Black Island" because its massive limestone rock structure in the island's center seems to be dark and scary from afar. Black Island, however, is a delightful paradise of immaculate white beach and turquoise sea, contrary to its name. It's ideal for travellers that enjoy outdoor activities such as trekking, cave exploration, snorkeling, or just a relaxing day at 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.
Black Island is frequently included in Calauit Island Tours, which can be booked at Busuanga and Coron.You can also charter a boat from Coron Town proper.
This is an all-year round destination but avoid visiting during the rainy season as it might affect your experience.
There is an entrance fee to this location.
