Apulit Island North Palawan - PHE007

Eco-adventure and luxury on an idyllic island

Apulit Island, located east of Palawan in TayTay Bay, is home to limestone cliffs begging to be climbed, waters teeming with healthy coral and marine reef, caves to explore, and white sand beaches on which to relax. It's the perfect spot for an active holiday in a peaceful setting.

All 50 of the rooms at Apulit are built on stilts over the water. The spacious Water Cottages sleep two while Loft Water Cottages sleep four. Loft Water Cottages have stairs leading straight down into the sea so you can swim and snorkel just below your balcony. All cottages have private verandahs overlooking TayTay Bay and are designed to combine classic Filipino architecture with contemporary design. Full board is included when staying on Apulit.

Cave tours, rock climbing, rappelling, volleyball, frisbee, and many other land activities are available. Those who prefer watersports have their pick of snorkeling, diving, windsurfing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and cliff jumping. Island-hopping boat trips can be arranged. Activities for the younger set can include a scavenger hunt and sand sculpture making.

Reaching Apulit requires a 90-minute van ride from El Nido to TayTay followed by a 50-minute boat ride.

"Apulit was amazing especially dressed up for Chinese New Year! The staff were incredible and our trip to Isla Blanca was stunning - only a handful of other guests came. Wish we had stayed another night!" - AM, Feb 2019

"Apulit Island is beyond words & pictures don’t do it justice of what a beautiful place it is.” - SM, Nov 2018
