One thing you might want to do when you're in Puerto Princesa (PP) is to take the Underground River and Honda Bay tours. At least that's what tourists who've been to PP would tell you. Well, I'd like to say the same primarily because I have immensely enjoyed both activities. I know you will too. If you are time-pressed and only have a day to spare in the city, then your best bet would be the Underground River tour, but make sure not to skip Honda Bay next time you're in PP. Rather, don't just spend a day in Puerto Princesa - there are several things to see and do that 2 days is not enough to enjoy what this city 'inside the forest' has to offer.
How far is the Honda Bay Wharf from downtown Puerto Princesa?
though, but a reef, discovered by a local fisherman some years ago. There's a floating walk-way and large raft at the area, which can accommodate a specific number of people. The reef is a good introduction to the diverse marine life of Palawan although there aren't much fish around the vicinity.
Say, I don't want to island hop and just stay on one island, which island would that be?
comes in second for my top choice. What I liked about this island was the sense of abandonment and isolation it harbored - from the old beach houses to the worn-out shelter floating above the clear water at the other side of the island. It's probably due to this reason that some island hoppers skip Luli and the fact that there's no coral reef here.
What it had which other island didn't was the diving platform perched on the edge of an elevated kiosk. It's about 12 feet high, pretty safe for diving off. A stretch of narrow, White-powdery sandbar that extends to both sides was an addition to its charm.
is called as such because of the abundance of starfish in the island. During our stay here however I only saw one, courtesy of our jolly and helpful guide who plucked it from the shore shortly after having our lunch. Snorkeling is best done here when high tide otherwise you'll find it hard to wade through waist-deep water with sharp rocks at the bottom.
Looks like you enjoyed Pambato Reef the least.
Did it take you a whole day to complete the tour?
How much did you spend in total?
