Day 3: Honda Bay Island Hopping: Pambato Reef Snorkeling, Luli Island and Cowrie Island


On day 3, we do Honda Bay Island Hopping, includes Pambato Reef, Luli Island and Cowrie Island. This time, we were added to a new group of travelers with the same destination to us. A nice chance to meet new friends. 

Meet our new travel buddies


We stopped at gear rentals. We rented snorkel set (because I left mine at home) and water shoes.


Pambato Reef

We do short swimming and snorkel in here. We see many corals, fishes and non sting jellyfish. Indeed Palawan is very rich in marine life. 





Luli Island

It means "lulubog-lilitaw" island. This is our 2nd stop. We had a sumptuous lunch here prepared by our tour guide.




Cowrie Island

Our last stop is the Cowrie Island, located within Honda Bay and it's about 8 kilometers northeast of Puerto Princesa City. It was named after the small-to-large sea snail, marine gastropod mollusc they call "cowrie".


A nice resort which is ideal for long term vacation and relaxation. It has fine white sand. They offer many water activities, they have bar and restaurants and they have massage service. 




We do snorkeling and we encounter many fishes. You can also feed them and they will gather around you. You can also rent kayak and jetski. I like Cowrie Island over the 3 islands we visited in Honda Bay.



Before we leave, our guide took some photos using the sand castles. I never though those sand castles were meant for photo souvenirs.

Ugong Rock Adventures

Want to add some cardio on your itinerary in Puerto Princesa Palawan? they try Ugong Rock Adventure. It's a cave adventure where you need to climb high rocks and reach the top of the cave. You have two options going down - zipline or manually descend  to reach down again.


First, they do a short briefing to us about dos and donts when inside the cave. After going through information center, we then proceed to gear station.



They provided us with hard hat and gloves. The gloves are for the protection of stalagmites and stalactites. Once we touch them with bare hands, they will die as our hands produce oil and sweat.


 According to our guide, they call it Ugong Rock because there are some stones that creates a sound if you slightly hit them.




The cave holes are narrow, needs to position your body according to the shape of the hole so you can get inside. It was a breathtaking climb we had during our trip, that caused us to have muscle pain the next day. 


When you reached the top, you have two options going down - zipline or manually descend down again.  The zipline is only 100 meters and the fee is 300.00. It's like 10 minutes zipline to reach the base camp. By riding their zipline, you are also helping them to support this spot for tourism.


The 2nd option to exit is to take the trail going down. Don't worry, you can found a lot of guides inside that will help you on your struggles. But be very careful, the rocks are sharp.


To add more adventure, we choose to take the trail going down. It's much easier to descend, no sweat haha and until we reach a very steep area, glad the guides are experts. I experienced muscle pain day after this adventure :D You must try this too!

Day 2: Puerto Princesa Underground River

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park or known as The Palawan Underground River was one of the main highlight on our Palawan tour. We took a package from Gulliver's 24/7 Travel and Tour because you cannot go there without booking first.


I recommend to stay in Go Hotels, at the lobby you can find Gulliver's Travel and Tour boot. At night, they left us a note regarding the pick up time for tomorrow's tour. A very nice service. They picked us up from the hotel around 7:00AM. 

Our tour guide - Kuya Alfred

Our guide was the best. His name is Alfred. I can see that he really love his job, he is happy to introduced the city to us. The history and all did-you-know facts. He has humor also which makes our long trip not boring.


We are going North, to Brgy. Cabayugan, 2 hours travel from the city.While on the road, our tour guide said that Puerto Princesa is described as a "City in a Forest" and is 1,500 meters above sea level. Palwan has 10,780 islands/islets and over 1M population. We passed by the Cleopatra Needle known as the highest mountain peak in Palawan. 

Meet our travel buddies

We arrived at last after a long time of waiting from the ticket boot and boat port. It was raining again on our 2nd day of tour. And the tourists were superb many - we cannot find any vacant seats while waiting for our turn to go inside the cave. 

A nice view of the cave entrance

We go around the place while waiting for our boat. We spotted nice views from the left side of the island. 







It was fascinating to see the inside of Underground River. Different forms of stalagmites and stalactites. Inside forms and shapes are like abstract. You can use your mind to see different images. It is such amazing how nature works and I understand why Palawan Underground River was provisionally chosen as one of the 2011's New 7 Wonders of  Nature. 

For me it looks like a T-rex, sometimes the left side looks like 
an "Alien" from a movie.




The Underground River tour lasted like 30 minutes. It was fun!
