    The famous underground river in Puerto Princesa. In the cave I enjoy to seeing the the jaw dropping cave formations in every spot, in the cave you’ll see the limestone and pristine waters. There are many species specially bats. I enjoy the tour because of kuya who that gives us information about the rock formation and some facts and jokes by our tour guide. It was a great experience inside and I will visit again.

    Loved it. Almost skipped this part of the tour, and it was the best one yet! We were all alone, and the serenity and peace you get to experience is indescribable. If you have a chance, be sure to stop here and kayak all the way in.

    Totally worth it! That's the most famous landscape in Coron, make sure that it is included in the tour you're doing (in case you're not doing all).
    The view uphill is really amazing, and the lake downstairs is refreshing.
    If you're lucky you can see monkey going down to get a sip on it.

    This review is for the Sunset at Las Cabanas - at the very end of the strip.

    They had a perfect view of the sunset settling by the mountain islands (or rock mountains I am not quite sure) and the sea. It was a perfect place to have some quiet dinner date or relaxed hang out with your friends. Unfortunately, it was cloudy during our visit so we didn’t get to take a photo of the actual sunset.

    For the service, I have no complains. They are very attentive, very friendly, and very quick. They even offered taking our picture by the beach since they noticed that my partner and I are struggling to take good selfies.

    For the food, it was pretty decent. We ordered (i forgot the official name but here is the closest i can compare it with) lechon kawali with mexican rice and patatas bravas. For the drinks - beer (corona) and mango shake. I wouldn’t say it was top quality but it’s not bad as well.

    Will definitely come back for a great overall experience!

    I've been to various islands all over the Philippines, in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, from Batanes to Jolo, and I can say that Sebaring has one of the most beautiful beaches and sandbars in the country. The fine, powdery white sand of its beach is even better than that of the world famous Boracay! I'm sure this place will become a hit among both local and international tourists as soon as it becomes more accessible. They're currently building an airstrip on the island for small private planes. I don't know when it will be operational. Right now the only way to reach the place is by boat coming either from Rio Tuba or Balabac Island or from nearby Bancalaan Island. We took a boat from Balabac Island and it was a really long ride. It lasted for about 2.5 hours one-way! The scenery along the way, however, was breath-taking! Kilometers and kilometers of sandbars, shallow crystalline waters changing in hues, colorful corals and fish, etc. There are some native huts on the island proper of Sebaring, where I was told the last episode of the TV series "Probinsiyano" was recently shot. Not very far from Sebaring Island is Punta Sebaring, which is one of the longest and biggest sandbars in the Philippines. Its white sand is so powdery such that your feet literally sink into it! It's simply paradise! Very highly recommended if you're adventurous enough!

    This is a lovely hidden gem but if you're not a strong swimmer you may struggle getting to or from the beach. Well worth the effort of getting ashore but you'd be advised to bring some fins to help you get ashore or back to the boat.

    Can be crowded at peak periods.

  • Everything but the best. White sand, beautiful water, relaxing place. We paid 100 pesos for the entrance fee since its a private island and its not included in some tours. But its all worth it. This is the highlight of my travel vlog. Link on my bio

    Lio Beach is a beautiful span of white sand beach in one of the islands of the Palawan particularly dubbed as the Lio estates of Ayala Land Inc. Composed of four hotels - Huni, Casa Kalaw, Seda-Lio and Hotel Covo. One can go endlessly throughout the day to explore the beach area which boasts of cafes, restaurants shops , tour operators and airline and even special boutiques offering a wider variety of beach accessories from hats, sun tan lotions, soaps and even beach and summer wear. On a sunny day, one can lay in the beach for hours and watch the beach combers, the swimmers and the tourists. Quite relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis in Metro Manila, Lio Beach offers a respite for the soul and provides choices for food and for hotel accomodations.

    Wow what a great adventure, Visiting the 3 falls in Kuyawyaw falls located in Taytay completed our stay in El nido. We drove with rented motorcycle and took us 1- 0,5 hours to get there. Definitely worth it. We had also a friendly guide. The fees are bit confusing though.
    Environmental feel : 150 php.
    Foreign tourist entrance fee : 50 php.
    Local : 30php
    Tourguide fee: 200 ( mandatory bec. tourist cannot enter without a guide)
    There are some food and beverages. We ordered pizza and delivered to us with charge of 50 pesos only up to the second falls.
    There are aqua shoes you can rent for 100 pesos.
    We did this activity on our last day of stay in El Nido and leaving with filling of contentment.

    If your looking for comfort, service, good food relaxation, fun, this is the place to be. It was a long journey to get here of the uk but as soon as I stepped off the sea plane from Manila we were greeted with smiles and fresh coconut juice out of the coconut. I have come here with my wife and have the whole island to ourselves it's just paradise. Peter who runs the place cannot be more helpfull and informative the staff cannot do enough for you and with a constant smile on there faces which is so refreshing. After every meal the chef comes out to makes sure you enjoyed your meal and so far every meal has been delicious and then asks what would you like for your next meal. Went diving today have the use of three boats and jet skis for such a solitude place there's lots to do or nothing to do whatever you fancy. I would come back with the whole family next time just so they can experience a perfect holiday.

    I went here prior to pandemic, This island has a fine powdery white sand that is really inviting! We stayed here for about 30 minutes or more. It was raining when we visited this island but that's fine since we get to try the local coco juice and still enjoyed the beach while raining. This island looks like an island from Survivor show with tall coconut trees, a quiet ambiance, and an amazing white beach.

    This is a great snorkelling site in Coron, this is offshore and is deeper than the other sites we snorkel, the current is also strong, but hey this is the place where you can see a lot of fish, when i say a lot, its really a lot. its impossible to move without touching a fish, so be extra be careful in swimming because the fishes are chasing you. If you are tired of snorkelling you can just sit at the edge of the boat, and you will clearly see the fishes from the boat since there are really a lot of them.
