Port Barton Bay in Palawan attracts tropical vacationers with its gorgeous turquoise waters, hidden coves, and rich marine life. An island hopping tour of this hidden gem will wow you. Island hopping tours are a beautiful way to learn about the region’s natural beauty and the importance of maintaining it. Today, I took part in this activity!
As the boat leaves Port Barton settlement, limestone cliffs and lush flora meet you. The first destination is frequently German Island, where pristine white sand invites relaxation. Snorkeling in the coral gardens shows the bay’s diverse marine life.
Next, Inaladelan Island, or “Turtle Island,” as our boatmen explains, provides the experience of seing peaceful sea turtles sliding over the water. We weren’t too lucky as we only saw one. Boatmen says the turtles haven’t been seen that much since the last strong typhoon a few months ago that battered the area.
Further on, Exotic Island shows Palawan’s stunning emerald waters and golden sands. The tour ends with a visit to the sandbar of the Starfish Island. This lovely spot for snorkeling, kayaking, or just relaxing in the sun lives up to its name.
