Palawan is one of the popular tourist destinations in the world. If you are in Puerto Princesa and would like to visit the nearby islands, the best way to do it is to book a Honda Bay island hopping tour. Those who love to snorkel and see different corals and fishes would enjoy this tour. Here are some of the islands included in a Honda Bay Island hopping tour.
The first stop of a Honda Bay island hopping tour is often Pandan island. This is where you are most likely to have your lunch. Of course, this will depend on the itinerary prepared by the Palawan travel agency you got the tour from.
A Honda Bay island hopping tour from Hopping Buddies Travel & Tours includes the service of a licensed tour guide, boat & land transfers, permits/ entrance fees and a buffet picnic lunch.
While waiting for your lunch, you can kill time by snorkeling or kayaking. There are also banana boats for rent at the island.
If you haven’t seen thousands of bats get out of their caves, this is your chance to experience it. Don’t worry, there’s nothing to be scared about these bats. They are only fruit bats.
One of the recognized islands during a Honda Bay island hopping tour is the Cowrie island. It offers about 3 hectares of beautiful white sand beach. If you want to get some tan or simply want to rest after snorkeling for hours during your tour, this is the best island to do it.
The Luli Island is very popular because it’s the only island that sinks and rises with the tide. The name is a shorthand for lulubog, lilitaw.
Starfish island is a popular sandbar that got its name because of the abundance of starfish in the area. Locals also call it as Tabuan Island.
Though not often included in a Honda Bay island hopping tour, you’ll be able to pass through this privately-owned island. This is where you’ll find the famous Dos Palmas Island Resorts. Day trippers are welcomed in this island for a fee.
A regular Honda Bay island hopping tour includes 3 to 5 islands. If you have certain islands you want to visit, don’t forget to inform your guide ahead of time so you can work out a good itinerary for the tour.
