Isla Felomina: A New Diving and Snorkeling Site in Puerto Princesa Palawan

by - June 13, 2016

During my 4-day trip to Palawan, one of the highlights of my tour is going to an undiscovered island along the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park - friends I give you Isla Felomina. 

Isla Felomina is the newest diving and snorkeling spot in Puerto Princesa Palawan. Very few have known this islet along the subterranean river. Water lovers and beach bum will surely fell in love with this place. Crystal clear water and lots of little fish are seen here.

How to get to Isla Felomina:

- From Puerto Princesa airport, ride any tricycle going to the Van terminal. Fare Php50.00 / USD1.00
- From the North Terminal, ride any van going to Sabang. Fare Php 140.00 / USD 3.00 Private van rental good for 10 pax (roundtrip) is Php 3,500 / USD 78.00
- At the port, hire a pump boat going to Isla Felomina. Fare Php 2,000 / USD 44.00 good for 6 pax.

Before going to the island you have to call/sms Barangay Captain Hipolito at (63) 905-2972477 if you opt to have lunch at the island prepared by the locals. Entrance fee is Php 168.00 / USD 3.7  and Entrance with lunch is Php 360.00 / USD 8.00 - Rice, Fish, Veggies and local desserts.

Snorkeling gears are for rent at the port for Php 150.00 / USD 3.3

I am blessed and still overwhelmed with the kind of experience I had during my Palawan tour. Thank you so much Palawan tourism.
