"Secret and untouched beauty. As soon as we boarded the outrigger boat we knew it was something different. We reached in evening and relaxed, next day was full of activities. Guides take extra effort to make sure the stay is worth it and we could connect with everyone there. It was really worth staying for two nights. I hope it stays like this forever." -GG, Jan. 2020 

Danjugan Island is, first and foremost, a wildlife sanctuary and marine reserve. This ecotourist destination is focused on conservation, environmental education, sustainable living, science, and research. Accommodation is basic with solar-power and limited water.

Once threatened by over-fishing, Danjugan Island is now a protected sanctuary for marine and terrestrial life. It is an outdoor classroom and conservationist research area that has been opened to visitors willing to live simply and sustainably while on the island.

Accommodation is in two types of rooms. The Moray Lagoon Camp is best used during Habagat (the southwest monsoon season, approximately May-September). These open-air eco-cabanas share toilets and showers. Beds are set up dormitory-style with mosquito nets. Although solar-powered lights are in place, phone charging is not available. On the Western side of the island are the private rooms of Typhoon Beach. Each room has an en suite toilet and bath, a private lounge area, solar powered lights and fans. Phone charging is available but there is no mobile phone reception. These rooms are best visited during Amihan (the northeast monsoon season, approximately October-April).

Meals are served buffet-style using local produce and vegetables from an organic farm on the mainland. There is no freshwater supply on Danjugan Island so guests are asked to be mindful of their consumption.
