Palawan Honda Bay Island Hopping Tour with Lunch & Transfers | Luli, Cowrie & Starfish Islands
Pack your swimwear and hop aboard this tour that will take you through the blue waters of Puerto Princesa’s Honda Bay. This is the perfect vacation escapade for island hopping and beach enthusiasts. This shared tour already comes with the assistance of a licensed tour guide, boat transfers, the use of a lifevest, a picnic lunch, shed and terminal fees, insurance, and pick-up and drop-off from your accommodations in Puerto Princesa. You may rent snorkeling gear or a kayak for an additional fee, but you may bring your own gear if you have them.
You will depart from your hotel at around 7 AM 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 pristine islands, and Honda Bay has three of the best: Luli Island, Cowrie Island, and Starfish Island. In addition to white sand, the islands are known as some of the best diving sites in the province.
Luli Island is the first island in your itinerary. Luli is home to three long sandbars that are submerged during high tide but emerge during low tide. The origin of its name is “lulubog lilitaw,” a Tagalog phrase for “sink then rise.” The site offers fun water activities such as board diving, cliff jumping, and snorkeling. You also get the chance to feed the colorful fish 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 waters and say hello to the schools of fish abundant in the area. There are also many accommodations here, like cabanas, pavilions, and nipa huts, as well as facilities for beach volleyball and Frisbee.
You can have your hearty lunch either in Luli or Cowrie Island. Afterward, you will get back in your boat and travel to your last stop, Starfish Island. You will see small and big starfish both in the shallow water and on the sand. Just remember to refrain from picking these creatures up to avoid hurting them.
After your island-hopping tour, you will be dropped off at your hotel or resort in Puerto Princesa so you can rest.
