Great first stop on Island Hop

The beach and amenities on the island were welcome as our boat had problems and quickly they had us up and running and we spent about an hour on the island. Not much there though... read more

This, for me, was the best island among the three islands that I visited during the Honda Bay Tour. White, powdery sand, very scenic and long stretch of sand bar that is picture perfect. Swimmable beach with perfect temperature. There's even a kayak rental which you can use to explore the mangroves nearby. Two thumbs up for this island!

The beach and amenities on the island were welcome as our boat had problems and quickly they had us up and running and we spent about an hour on the island. Not much there though it was open and scenic and good views of the surrounding areas.

Tiny island with nothing to do there. We arrived at low tide. they cornered off a tiny (really tiny!!) section by the beach where we could snorkel and feed the fish. Water was dirty and no fish insight! We literally walked on and off the island. Very disappointing and waste of time.

Nice place to go. Still would say you can skip this if you are overly done with too many beaches in Philippines. Else, is a different experience going there

This little island in Honda Bay is small, but very nice. It only has one little hut where the tourists congregate, and there were not more than a dozen other tourists there when we visited. It's a very low, sandy, island, essentially just one big beach with a neighboring mangrove island in view. The beach and ocean and sunny sky... More

Included in the island hopping, place is good, but again, beaches in Puerto Princesa are too crowded for me. But a must visit if you are in Palawan, very accessible

This island is little more than a large sandbar with mangroves covering one end of it. There is accommodation in one hut that overlooks the only demarcated swimming spot which is totally overcrowded and filthy water. There is a covered area to sit and eat and a small bar selling drinks. Ablutions are available. Swimming and snorkeling outside the demarcated... More

Humble island to go swimming. Truly you can just go to chill and look at the surrounding view and walk around and just chill

I believe Lu-Li Island is the smallest island amongst Cowrie and Starfish Islands. It is the second island we've visited as part of our Honday Bay Island Hopping Tour. You can dive/jump on the board like 12 or maybe 15 feet high to your heart's desire. Your boatman will be there to assist and keep you safe. If you are... More
