North Palawan Escapade
Overview

Choose where you sleep

  • Flower Island, Palawan
  • Lagen Island Resort
  • Miniloc Island Resort

Taytay to El Nido

North Palawan probably remains the Philippines’ most preserved area with unspoilt nature and untouched wilderness: emerald forests plunging directly into turquoise waters, sprinkled with white powdery sand beaches, dark cliffs surrounding lagoons.

A perfect exotic combination: first, tiny Flower Island; exclusive, relaxing, charming… a little Eden in Taytay Bay. Then El Nido Bay, a mini tropical Halong Bay, preciously preserved, with the resort of your choice both with soothing comfort and customised service.

Sample Itinerary (7 DAYS / 6 NIGHTS):

Day 1:     Fly from Manila to El Nido. On arrival, set off by private 4WD minivan for a 2 hour drive from west to east across the northern tip of Palawan, following a dirt road that passes through lush jungle and exotic plantations. Arrive at the jetty and board a boat for the 45 minute crossing to Flower Island.  Settle into your beachfront bungalow.  Lunch, free time to relax and enjoy the white sand beach, dinner and overnight Flower Island.

Days 2 & 3: Full board Flower Island.  A visit to a nearby pearl farm can be arranged.  Snorkelling, island hopping, kayaking, walking around the island, badminton; etc… are also possible. 

Day 4:    Breakfast Flower Island.  Transfer back to Taytay and drive back to El Nido. On arrival, transfer by boat to your choice of either Miniloc or Lagen Island, set in the middle of the stunning El Nido Bay, characterised by its dramatic karst limestone islets.  Lunch, free time to relax, dinner and overnight the resort.

Days 5 & 6: Full board at Miniloc Island Resort for the more active, or at Lagen Island Resort for luxury.  Enjoy all-inclusive scheduled activities on site. 

Day 7:     Breakfast at the resort.  Transfer back to El Nido airport for the flight back to Manila by small private airplane.
