  • needs a little cleaning of the beach but still great place to visit and swim. Perfect for swimming activity  more »
  • I found this island impressive because of its landscape, fishes, swimming and diving areas. It's clean, quaint and even has a cute little bar.  more »
  • beautiful beach although being able to fit pe shortly and leave for other places to visit doesn't give you time to enjoy a nice sunny day and the sea anyway to see

  • Nice island with a good swimming area and diving board. Some coral to look at and marine life. There's a small tiki style bar and restrooms.
  • Such a fun beach. Be careful feeding the fish. They're pretty hungry. My leg got bitten 3x. Lol
  • grab a beer, and enjoy the evening on this gorgeous island...or ask the man with the blue cap for a cocktail, and he will teach you the essence of life.
  • One of the best, if not the best island in puerto princesa
  • The island itself stands for lulubog lilitaw, in English, it approximates to sinking and emerging as the island is inundated during the high tide, and the sands are visible at other times. When I visited, the main structures would be the mini bar where cocktails and alcohol on the rocks may be served, to its right is a larger waiting area with a bathroom and to the left, some unattended structures. Further to the left, is the snorkeling area where a diving board is located and a fish feeding structure (unsure what to call it). But sometime this year, as per the bartender, they would put up a buffet on the island for tourists to feast on which is interesting, imagine arriving when you can still see and walk on the sand, and leaving with water all around you.
