Glimpse of Flower Island

Categories Places
Fine white sand, emerald and just clean waters and a refreshing stay at this beautiful island.

Jewelmer invited me to visit Flower Island together with two other bloggers and two Japanese journalists for a beautiful getaway in Palawan’s northern seas. I just miss this place. Flower Island, a beautiful resort place a few hours from the coastal town of Taytay in northern Palawan was just unforgettable despite the rough seas and huge waves that seemed to test our mettle.

But I took it gamely and just enjoying the occasional sea sprays and considered the wave riding as another adventure. Flower Island was a beautiful escape from the chaos of Metro Manila. From the sapping humidity of the megalopolis. Instead, I just had the time of my life enjoying this unexpected downtime, with the sea and island almost all to yourself.

I want another vacation like this. Like Cibang Cove in Calayan Island, the Babuyanes.

The Flower Island escapade is an upcoming series. Watch for it soon.

  1. @claire, yup, maganda talaga dito and kakaunti lang ang tao. you can even have it all to yourself 🙂

  2. An old co-worker of mine was forever on me to take a vacation to Palawan rather than the more obvious choice of Borocay. This photo only added further credence to his claim. Looks gorgeous.

  3. @nel, i think you can buy some islands off palawan 🙂

    @chris, forget boracay. its chaotic and over rated. 🙂
