Puerto Princesa Island Hopping Tour in Honda Bay with Lunch

Pack your swimwear and hop aboard this tour that will sail you through the deep blue waters of Puerto Princesa. This is the perfect vacation escapade for island hopping and beach enthusiasts. You will depart from your hotel early in the morning aboard an air-conditioned van that will take you to the mid-eastern coast of the city where Honda Bay is located. The province of Palawan is known for its white sand beaches, and Honda Bay has three of the best of its kind – Luli Island, Cowrie Island, and Starfish Island. In addition to white sand, the islands are acclaimed as some of the best diving sites in the province. Luli Island is the first island in your itinerary. Luli is composed of three long sandbars that sink during high tide but rise during low tide. Hence, the origin of its name – “Lulubog-Lilitaw”, a Tagalog phrase for “sink then rise”. The site offers fun water activities such as board diving, cliff jumping, snorkeling, and a few more. You also get the chance to feed the colorful fishes and see them up close. Your adventure continues to Cowrie Island. It is a boomerang-shaped haven for water sports like banana boat riding and kayaking. Like in Luli, you also get to dive into Cowrie’s azure water and say hello to the schools of fishes abundant in the area. There are also many accommodations here like cabanas, pavilions, and nipa huts, plus there are available facilities for beach volleyball and Frisbee. As a short break, you can have your hearty lunch either in Luli or Cowrie Island. Then afterward, you will get back in your boat and travel to your last stop which is the Starfish Island. From the name itself, you will eventually know what is waiting for you there. You will see small and big starfishes both in the shallow water and on the sand. Don’t forget to bring your waterproof camera and diving gears to this island hopping excursion where you get to have a meet and greet with many sea creatures.
