Pristine Flower Island is real beach escape

Flower Island's white sand beach is concentrated at only a section of the island, and where one enters and exits.  This is pure bliss!

This is a real beach escape! That’s all I can exclaim! An island so remote that if you go by the regular route: plane to Puerto Princesa, van to Taytay and two hours pumpboat ride can almost take you eternity to reach. But good thing, after negotiating the rough sea, all you can proclaim is the beauty of this hideaway. It’s the best beach resort in Palawan worth the ride.

How pristine is the water around Flower Island? Many of the coveted south sea pearls, which only thrive in clean seas, of prestigious Jewelmer, a Philippine based jeweler and advocate of pristine seas and environment, source these in this area of northern Palawan.

And I just love this place! No crowds, no hawkers, no touts. Its the pristine beach and creamy sand. You can watch the sun set over the mountains of northern Palawan, do yoga in the afternoons with guests and staff, sleep in native houses or at the tallest structure in the island offering 360 degree vistas…

…and you still have time to explore around the island, marvel at its flora and fauna, or just while away the afternoon on the beach lounging chairs. Or why not walk to the rockies at the edge of the white sandy beach and marvel at the island?

But nothing can compare to the emerald water. Frolic. Fun. Let the photos do the talking.

Just beautiful serene view
