Cowrie Island, Puerto Princesa
(3.3/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
A shimmering turquoise treasure trove of reef-lined shores and golden beaches, Cowrie Island provides your final slice of paradise on a Honda Bay island hop. Known for some of the clearest waters in the area, the island makes a great spot to search for clown fish and starfish as you snorkel along the reef, before drying off in the heat of the day on secluded sands framed with shady cabanas. Hidden among the tropical palms, find thatched huts serving colorful cocktails, fruit shakes, and tempting buffet lunches. You can rent snorkeling equipment on the island.
