Honda Bay, Puerto Princesa Palawan

Don't ever leave Puerto Princesa if you haven't been to Honda Bay. All-in-one adventure like Island hopping, swimming, snorkeling, diving and even fish feeding. Perfect site for photography as well by capturing the sunrise or sunset across the blue ocean and white sand. Nice!

How to Get there?
There a couple of ways to go to this island. Just ensure to put into mind that both of these options meet at
Barangay Sta. Lourdes Tagbanua

Option 1. Either get a travel agent by just paying them roughly around Php1,500 each person. This includes hotel pick-up, boat rentals, lunch, snorkeling gears and entrance to islands.
