    The Trip

    The Philippine island province of Palawan is a dream destination for stunning beaches, aquamarine waters and secluded coves – a true paradise for sailing.  This sailing expedition will take you on one of our favorite routes: the Bacuit Bay archipelago, Entalula Island, Miniloc Island, the Big Lagoon, Snake Island Bay, and Linapacan.

    The Itinerary

    The Bacuit Bay archipelago is one of the most beautiful in the world: a fantastic landscape of islands and islets covered in lush vegetation, lagoons of brilliant turquoise waters, huge karst peaks, and incredible marine life to discover while snorkeling or diving.

    It’s hard to choose which of the 45 gorgeous islands is best to include in a sailing expedition here, but some are particularly beautiful and we recommend to follow this route to explore them.

    Sail into the bay and stop for the first night at the beautiful Entalula Island: from here you’ll have a first-row seat on the sunset. Then tour around  Miniloc Island and the majest Small Lagoon will its beautiful limestone cliffs and many shades of blue water. Sail into the shallow channel that takes you to the Big Lagoon: we prefer the early mornings to avoid the crowds if the tide is high enough. As you enter, you’ll find yourself in between 2 limestone walls, with all the lanscape of karsts and white beaches in front of you!
    Spend a night in the bay of Snake Island and enjoy the view of the snake-like strip of sandy beach that appears during hightide.
    Depart the next morning to Linapacan Archipelago where you’ll spend 2-3 nights discovering the local virgin islands. This area is a bit farther away – about 8 hours sailing – and still off the beaten track. You’ll be likely to have these paradise beach islands mostly to yourself. Enjoy the amazing clear water, snorkeling & cliff diving, and even jungle trails for the avid hiker.
    Spend the last few nights back in the Bacuit Bay, island hopping between Lagen Island, Binagbuyutan Island, and Malapacao Island.
