El Nido, Palawan
I think it’s only fitting to cap this challenge by featuring one of the most beautiful islands in the world. I’m amazed at how the local government is able to responsibly handle tourism in the islands. In fact, they are proposing to close some islands this year to rehabilitate the corals, and they will be opening other sites.
I went here with my friends way back in 2012, and I only had my phone with me so the pictures aren’t as good. I’d sure want to go back here though no matter what!
Limestone cliffs from afar
I found this sandbar really fascinating, and the water is just so nice and clear! We got to cross this sandbar to get to the other island 🙂
another stop of our island tour; yet another breathtaking view
Clear waters, beautifully sculpted caves = perfect!
Another shot of the limestone cliffs and emerald water
El Nido’s islands have these limestone cliffs which locals scale to harvest ingredients for bird’s nest soup. And that’s really the color of the water in this part of the sea 🙂
Hunter x Hunter’s Whale Island??
