It also has been well known to be the best diving spot in the Philippines.
Honda Bay is an absolutely charming place to relax and an excellent place to feel the cool breeze of nature.
Island hopping is a must! Over here, I swam and snorkeled for half a day, then just relaxed on the beach amidst the clear waters and white sand. I enjoyed my close encounter with the fish and colorful reefs, especially when we got to feed them bread. You’ll be surrounded by a school of fish, which are so colorful and fascinating! It is a totally different kind of experience which you can only find at Honda Bay, Palawan.
Honda Bay is located in Puerto Princesa, consists of several islets with white sand, clear waters and shallow reefs - namely Pandan Island, Snake Island, Starfish Island, Luli Island, Bat Island, Cowrie Island etc.
Starfish Island is a sand bar that got its name because of the starfish that used to abundantly inhabit it. The island is also known by locals as Tabuan Island. It is a small island with a few cottages that are available for picnicking island hoppers. Its main island is made up of white sand and is surrounded by greenish waters. A few palm trees grow on the island with a mangrove forest on the eastern side of the island.
Not far from Starfish Island, is another sand bar that has an elongated shape giving it in a name of Snake Island. On the high tide, most of its long sand bar sinks underwater but at low tide, the sandbar stretches as long as 3 kilometers where people can enjoy playing in the sand or sunbathing. In the shallow part of the sea, small fish are filling up while in the deep part you can see large starfish and other colorful fish species. Its greenish shoreline is rich in marine life that offers visitors a good place to swim and a large area for snorkel.
Pandan Island lies south of the Snake Island. It is an oval shaped island that is managed by the Legend group of hotels. Its shores are as green as the other two islands and its sands are soft and white.
Luli Island is another sandbar in Honda Bay which has garnered its name from the local description of “Lulubong- Lilitaw” and is shortened to Luli. The name means sinks and arises. The sandbar can be seen during low tide while on high tide it sinks underwater leaving only the houses on it visible. Depending on which there would be a chance that the island may be seen or not.
