We are set in one of the largest (90 hectares) unspoilt secluded coves in Palawan, and surrounded on the north, east and south by tropical forest. To the west open sea where we get “Breath-taking Sunsets”. Turtle Bay is our marine sanctuary that we have been protecting for 10 years. It’s a safe swimming location with great visibility for kayaking/ snorkelling to see the many turtles, tropical fish in our 2 house reefs.
