Ursula Island

Ursula Island was declared as Palawan’s Game Refuge and Bird Sanctuary through Presidential Proclamation No. 14 on April 30, 1960. It is a haven to over 150,000 birds that cluster here two hours before sunset.

Ursula Island is a 17 hectare, oval shaped island is located southwest of Sulu Sea. On the southern part lies a wide coral reef covering an area larger than Ursula island itself. The beautiful coral line and marine vegetations surrounding the island are a delightful sight for tourists and divers. For more information, contact the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office at Barangay Sta.

Stunning Snake Island

Snake Island in Palawan

Slither up to Snake Island in El Nido, ‪#Palawan‬ which is known for its S-shaped sandbar that connects the island to the mainland and can only be accessed during low tide.

Snake Island is one of Palawan’s remarkable landmarks because of how it stretches along the sea in a snake-like form. There might not be snakes in the island but you can definitely snorkel with the sea turtles here at this white sand beach!
