Palawan Puerto Princesa Honda Bay Island Hopping Tour with Lunch | Starfish, Luli, & Cowrie Islands
Swim in the azure waters surrounding Puerto Princesa's best beaches with this island-hopping tour. With three of the city's top islands on the itinerary, this trip is perfect for travelers who love the beach. It also includes transfers to each island, the service of a guide, a picnic lunch, and hotel pick-up and drop-off within Puerto Princesa's city proper. You also have the option to upgrade this shared tour to a private experience.
Your tour starts after your guide fetches you from your accommodations at 7:30 AM. You will then head to Honda Bay, where you'll board an outrigger boat. After putting on your life vests, you'll start sailing toward Starfish Island. As its name suggests, this island's waters are home to various starfish species. You can snorkel here as well to get a closer look at these sea creatures and catch a glimpse of other marine animals in the area.
From there, you'll travel to Luli Island. This sandbar only appears during low tide but boasts smooth sand that's perfect for a stroll. You can also rent a cottage here to enjoy a cool drink while taking in the tropical ambiance. Feel free to wade into the clear waters as well for a refreshing dip.
Finally, you'll end your island-hopping escapade at Cowrie Island for your picnic lunch on the beach. The island also has a local shop that sells beer and cocktails that make great treats while you lounge by the sea. Before leaving, you can also get a massage in one of the cabanas that overlook the shoreline.
After your time here, you'll travel back to Honda Bay. Your guide will then escort you back to your hotel within the city proper before calling it a day.
