Today is a day filled with possibilities, and the choice is yours. Our recommendation? Cebu's vibrant marine life is a must-explore, featuring encounters with whale sharks, turtles, and schools of sardines!

Moalboal is renowned for its massive sardine schools, mackerel, and turtles. For those seeking more, a trip to Oslob to meet the whale sharks is an option. If relaxation is calling your name, pick a pristine beach and bask in the sun.

For the adventurous souls, there's also the option of embarking on a day trip to Bohol. But, a fair warning: in this case, the alarm clock will ring well before dawn!

Paradise awaits

Today, we bid farewell to Cebu and embark on a brief flight to the heavenly island of Palawan. Stretching nearly 400 miles towards Borneo's coast, this part of the Philippines boasts some of the most breathtaking seascapes in the country.

Our plane touches down in the lively Puerto Princesa, and we promptly make our way to Sabang, a charming town nestled between the jungle and the ocean.

With the afternoon ahead of us, the question is: Do we dive into the warm waters of the South China Sea or venture inland to explore the untouched rainforest? It's a tough decision, but fortunately, we don't have to make it just yet!

Subterranean River National Park

Get ready for something truly remarkable! We have a captivating experience in store for you. The Subterranean River National Park near Sabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasts the world's longest navigable subterranean river, stretching 8 kilometers. We'll board a boat, passing by the monkeys and lizards guarding the entrance, and prepare to be astounded by the landscapes that have evolved here over millennia. Words can't do justice to what you'll witness – you have to see it for yourself!

After a satisfying lunch, we'll hit the road toward our next destination: Port Barton. This is a magical place where the sand whispers beneath your feet. So let's get settled, savor a drink, and eagerly await the sunset over the picturesque Pagdanan Bay.

A night under the stars

When we mention "island hopping," what do you picture? Today, we're all about discovering the stunning beaches and islands along the Port Barton coast, a day of relaxation, swimming in these incredible waters, and sunbathing while gracefully moving from one island to another – courtesy of a boat, of course. We're not actually hopping!

But the evening holds a special adventure for us: camping on a pristine beach, in close communion with nature. (Did someone mention plankton?!) With a clear sky and a favourable moon, we'll drift off to sleep under a magnificent starry canopy. What more could we possibly ask for in life?

Included: overnight stay, island hopping experience, lunch, night camping on Gilligan's beach, dinner

Two days in paradise

It's not easy to leave the beauty of Port Barton, but we're confident our next destination will be something extraordinary. El Nido, a charming village in northern Palawan, is our next stop, serving as the gateway to the breathtaking Bacuit archipelago. This paradise boasts crystal-clear waters surrounded by lush jungle, and it will be our haven for the next couple of days, so we can relish all it has to offer.

As the day gives way to a stunning sunset, El Nido's bars and restaurants spring to life. So, let's grab a cocktail and relish a beachfront party!

From island to island

Our time in El Nido has come to an end, and it's time to bid farewell as we make our way to Coron, where we'll spend the final days of our remarkable Philippine adventure. As seasoned travellers, we know the drill: another day, another paradise waiting to be explored.

The Calamian Island chain, situated off the northern coast of Palawan, is our next destination. With our base on the main island of Busuanga, we're perfectly positioned to discover these gems.

A short boat ride of around three hours takes us to Coron Island, home to the Tagbanua indigenous group and two stunningly beautiful lakes, Kayangan and Barracuda. Our cameras will be busy capturing these dreamlike landscapes!

Included: overnight stay, fast ferry from El Nido to Coron

Lakes and Lagoons

Today, the choice is yours as we explore the natural wonders of Coron Island. Do you want to visit Kayangan Lake, Barracuda Lake, or maybe both? Coron Island is a showcase of nature at its finest.

In Coron, there are only two lakes open to the public, as an indigenous tribe protects the island as their ancestral domain and keeps tourists at a distance. These two lakes are Kayangan Lake and Barracuda Lake.

Kayangan Lake stands out as the island's most popular destination, and rightfully so. Its pristine reef and crystal-clear waters are simply mesmerizing. To reach the lake, we'll "park" the boat and embark on a climb up several stairs to a panoramic viewpoint. After taking in the stunning vistas, we'll descend to the famous lake.

While Lake Kayangan tends to steal the spotlight, Lake Barracuda is its less-frequented sibling, which means more fun and fewer rules. Moreover, Lake Barracuda's waters are even clearer than those of Lake Kayangan. It's a paradise waiting to be explored!

Caving and Cliff Jumping

We wanted our last day in Coron to be an unforgettable, unique, and special experience, so we've chosen Black Island! Black Island has it all: pristine beaches for sunbathing, a vast coral reef for snorkelling, and caves and reefs for thrilling adventures.

Despite its name, the island isn't actually black; it earned its name from the black limestone rocks that adorn the area. Rest assured, the beaches boast beautiful, fine white sand. Officially, it goes by the name Malajon Island, but we won't spoil the surprises of this day. Just know that it promises to be fun and adventurous!

Included: overnight stay, private transfers and excursion to Black Island with dinner/barbecue included

As our final morning in Coron unfolds, we soak up the sun, sea, and sand, knowing it's time to bid this paradise farewell. During our flight back to Manila, let's make sure to glance out of the window for one last glimpse of our newfound favourite place in the world.

Upon landing in the capital, we're hoping to find the time for a leisurely stroll around Little Tokyo or Intramuros, the historic heart of the city. As the curtain falls on this magnificent adventure, our last evening in Manila will be spent in one of the city's rooftop bars, savouring every moment with our newfound friends.
