Few top experiences:
Do island hopping in Honda Bay where you will be able to explore Pandan Island, Cowrie Island, Luli Island, Starfish Island, and Verde Island for the white sandy beaches and turquoise water.
Dive-in at Night
El Nido’s Bacuit Bay is the perfect spot if someone is looking to dive in for the rich marine life. And, here it is not just about the marine life but thrilling topography including a 50-meter underwater cliff and a 12-meter underwater tunnel.
Get ready to spot marine life like Mata Rays and fully-grown green sea turtles. You’ll see even more elusive creatures such as seahorses, shrimp and catsharks in the night. Go for it!
Explore the underground river
Also, a World Heritage UNESCO Site, Puerto-Princesa Subterranean River National Park is home to this magnificent limestone karst formation and the most impressive cave system in the world.
Take the city tour
While you are at it, do not forget to take a day out and do the city tour. See historical sites like the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, the WWI Plaza Cuartel, Baker’s Hill for treats, Mitra’s Ranch to visit the horses, the Crocodile Farm and more.
Starfish Island is littered with groups of starfish doing what starfish do best. As you walk the shores and swim in the water, watch where you step! These colourful and diverse species of starfish are lounging all around you.
For the ones looking to swim amidst nature, then head to Estrella Falls that has one of the most swimmer-friendly plunging pools of any waterfall on the island. Flowing down Victoria Peak, these 20-foot rapid falls rush off a rocky ledge splitting into two waterfalls as they fill up a clean, blue basin below.
The Tubbataha Reef National Park
For this is considered the mecca of diving. The reefs are home to some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world. Rising from the volcanic depths of the Sulu Sea in the western Philippines, these magnificent atolls encompass an astonishing diversity of marine life.
