Executive summary by darmansjah

It’s no exaggeration to say that this is the reason to visit the Palawan region. From any vantage point – under water, from the air, lying prone on a beach – it’s a fantasy escape of mesmerizing jagged limestone island resting in the crystalline water of Bacuit Bay. The islands hide many white-sand beaches, hard-to-access lagoons and peaceful coves. The best way to explore the Bacuit Archipelago is to rent a boat for a day (between US$30-US$40) from El Nido.

STAY Miniloc Island Resort is a premier resort in the Bacuit Bay itself, located in a sheltered cove. Cottages are perched over crystal-clear waters. Prices include meals and use of kayaks, and other sports gear (from US$165-US$200).

GETTING THERE From Cebu or Manila, fly into Puerto Princesa International Ariport with either Ariphil Express or Cebu Pacific. From Puerto Princesa, a shuttle van can take you to El Nido in about five hours (US$15).
