Top Things To Do In Puerto Princesa, Palawan

1. Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park

The boat trip from Sabang to the national park is simply incredible, and a very romantic experience for you and your lover on your Palawan honeymoon. You’re surrounded by crystal clear ocean and pass by many stunning rock formations on your way to the national park. The entrance to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is framed by limestone-jagged cliffs and you can hear the sounds of native wildlife.

Access to the river is at the mouth of the cave and is framed by ancient trees growing right to the water’s edge. The Underground River travels 8.2km deep underground, through the surrounding mountains that you see on your drive into Sabang. The river opens up into several massive underground caves, with the most intricate limestone stalactites & stalagmites we’ve ever encountered. One large chamber known as the ‘Cathedral’ is over 60m high and has many cool formations inside like the incredible angel formation mounted on the wall. Try to get the front seat of the tour boat, if you’d like the best view. You are given a headset with an auditory explanation throughout the tour, which is super useful and informative.

Inside the Puerto Princesa Underground River…

At 1.5km inside you hit the twilight zone, where there are tons of bats and other creatures who have never ever been exposed to sunlight. The biodiversity inside the Underground River dates back 1000’s of years and has many species that have evolved over the years. We shone our torch on a crab, which had the thinnest transparent shell, you could literally see the inside of its body. The photo’s don’t do it justice at all, you need to see it in its full natural state to grasp how incredible the Puerto Princesa Underground River truly is!

Try to get an early tour of the Puerto Princesa Underground River on your Palawan honeymoon in the Philippines. Wait times can exceed up to two hours in peak times! We were lucky and only had to wait 15minutes, however, some of our friends weren’t as lucky and waited well over an hour!

2. Puerto Princesa Night Market

If you’re heading near the public bus terminal and have half an hour free, then you definitely need to check out the night market on your Palawan Honeymoon! They have literally anything and everything imaginable from clothes to shoes, fresh seafood and meats, even some delicious street food. It’s a really authentic experience that most honeymooners overlook when they come for their Palawan honeymoon in the Philippines. We found the meat section pretty overwhelming… but we’ll give the Filipino’s one thing, they’re really economical and don’t waste any part of the animal.

The whole vibe of the market was cool, everyone is so intrigued as to why you’re here and is excited when you’re keen to try their street food. Just make sure you know what you’re ordering because there’s a lot of weird meat… After seeing the meat section I was pretty keen to have something vegetarian. It looked like they had some wicked grilled capsicum on the BBQ, so I asked if it was and the lady said yes. Unfortunately, I didn’t see her son laughing hysterically behind her and opted to get my delicious grilled vegetable. Turns out it wasn’t capsicum at all… it was, in fact, pig skin! Just stick to the standard fried lumpia’s (spring rolls) and you will be fine. Visiting the Puerto Princesa Night Markets on your Palawan honeymoon is such an off the beaten path honeymoon experience.

3. Honda Bay

You don’t have to venture far to enjoy pristine beaches & exotic marine life.  Spend the day island hopping with your lover on your Palawan honeymoon. Visit places like Luli Island, Starfish Island and Cowrie Island in Honda Bay Palawan. This awesome tour picks you up from your hotel in Puerto Princesa and takes you to the best places in Honda Bay, where you can go snorkelling. Couples looking for a fun day island hopping on their Palawan Honeymoon will love this tour, which includes a delicious buffet lunch.

4. Iwahig Prison & Penal Farm

Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm is a wicked off the beaten path experience, located about 45 minutes from the city. It’s a really interesting off the beaten path honeymoon experience that you won’t get anywhere else in the world. You can literally go to the prison and chat with the inmates who are in jail on your Palawan honeymoon in the Philippines. Kind of crazy, but also kind of cool!

The trike ride was 800p for a round trip, or you can just rent a motorbike and cruise there on your own. Make sure you’re fully covered up, this means your legs and shoulders need to be covered. It’s free to get into the Prison, but you should bring along a gift e.g. cigarettes or money. We’d recommend gifting something that can easily be shared among the inmates.

Palawan Resorts & Hotels – Puerto Princesa

The best part about your honeymoon in Palawan is the affordable cost of accommodation!

Honeymoon In Palawan: Port Barton

If you’re looking to relax by the beach away from the crowds on your Palawan honeymoon, Port Barton is the place to go. It’s a great Palawan honeymoon destination that’s off the beaten path… literally. It’s off an unfinished dirt road that has construction going on around you. Perhaps the road has since been finished, nevertheless, it’s a great Palawan honeymoon hotspot that isn’t packed with tourists. The drive to Port Barton is incredible as it goes through some of the most untouched and underdeveloped parts of Palawan. We saw people bathing and washing their clothes in the river, farmers riding water buffalo and animals roaming around.

About Port Barton

Port Barton is a little-untouched slice of paradise which is ideal for newlyweds who’re having a romantic Palawan honeymoon in the Philippines. Relax by the beach, indulge in a couples massage just relax and unwind after all the stress of the wedding. Palawan honeymoon destination, Port Barton is a very simple town, with dirt roads and no taxi’s, so you have to walk to get around. The beach in Port Barton is far nicer than El Nido and is really secluded for couples wanting their own privacy.

Things To Know Before You Go!

  • There’s a limited supply of electricity to Port Barton. Therefore the town is prone to blackouts.
  • There is no ATM in Port Barton, so be sure to get cash out before you arrive! If you’re strapped for cash, you do have the option to wire transfer some money.
  • Try not to hurt yourself, as they have no hospital in Port Barton.
  • WiFi comes and goes in Port Barton, so try to live in the moment and not on your phone!

Top Things To Do In Port Barton, Palawan

If you’re on budget honeymoon in Palawan, Port Barton is perfect as they offer island hopping for only 800 Php, opposed to 1,200 and upwards in El Nido Palawan. The price includes lunch and snorkelling, but be wary of people attempting to make you pay an ‘environmental fee’ on some of the islands as it’s already included in your ticket.

Palawan Honeymoon snorkelling

2. Pamuayan Waterfall

Rent a motorbike for the day (400 Php) to find Pamuayan Waterfall on your Palawan honeymoon. Otherwise, you can walk through the jungle to Pamuayan Waterfall. We opted to walk to the waterfall by taking the trail next to Green View Hotel. It takes about 1.5 hours but, it’s amazing as you’re surrounded by nothing but nature, animals and little huts on the side of the road.

The waterfall is spectacular, especially on a stinking hot day in the Philippines. You can climb up the side of the waterfall and jump off into the depths below, just be careful because the rocks are super slippery! We got a lift back to town on the back of a motorbike with a local for only 100 Php once it started to rain on us! This is one of the best things to do in Palawan for couples on their Philippines honeymoon!

How To Get To Palawan: Port Barton

You can get to honeymoon destination Port Barton by either land or sea on your Palawan honeymoon. We’d recommend land for couples who’re on a budget honeymoon in the Philippines as it’s slightly cheaper.

Honeymoon In El Nido: Palawan

El Nido is a popular Palawan honeymoon destination, for beach-loving couples. The charming town El Nido, Palawan is surrounded by stunning gorges and cliffs. The sun even sets behind the cliffs of El Nido, turning the whole sky pink as it soon fades to darkness. The main beach of El Nido is nice-ish… It has potential if it wasn’t for the million boats docked on the shore. However, there are so many beautiful beaches nearby like, Marimegmeg and Nacpan Beach. Regardless, the view from the beach is incredible, it has a beautiful outlook over the ocean and limestone rocks elevating from the water. If you’re looking for an El Nido honeymoon package, perhaps try staying at an all-inclusive resort like The Nest El Nido Beach Resort!

About El Nido Palawan

Before you head to El Nido remember to visit an ATM beforehand. There’s only one in town and it runs out of cash on a regular basis. Trust us, we found out the hard way… We got stitched up paying a 6% fee on top of our regular bank card fees, just getting cash out from the local gas station. It’s always worthwhile keeping spare cash when you’re on your El Nido honeymoon.

You will need to purchase an environmental permit for your El Nido honeymoon. Most tours do not include the 200 Php environmental fee in the price, however, the permit does last for ten days.  The environmental fee funds environment and tourism-related projects.

The most romantic El Nido honeymoon package includes an island hopping tour! There are four different El Nido island hopping tours you can choose from, however, tour A and C are by far the best. Island hopping tours in El Nido range in price and also includes lunch.

Honeymoon on the beach at the secret lagoon in El Nido, however, it isn’t much of a secret anymore…The romantic honeymoon island hopping tour also stops at the big and small lagoon where you can swim, snorkel and kayak around. We saw turtles, clown fish, parrot fish and tons of other tropical sea life while snorkelling in El Nido. Lunch is caught, cooked and served from the boat and consists of an array of seafood, vegetables, rice and fresh fruit.

Our last stops were Shimizu Island and 7 Commando Beach where we swam in the sea, sunbathed and sipped on fresh coconuts. Everyone on the tour was slightly intoxicated and all friends by the end of it. We had a great day getting day drunk, frolicking in the sea and island hopping around El Nido on our Palawan honeymoon!

If you’re not much of a diver and don’t plan on getting scuba certified on your El Nido honeymoon, give snorkelling a go. The best part about snorkelling in El Nido is that majority of reefs in El Nido are fairly shallow, so you don’t need an oxygen tank to see beautiful marine life like turtles, stingrays and tropical fish.

Philippines Visa Requirements

Majority of nationalities are able to obtain a free 30day visa upon arrival into the Philippines. Check to see your countries visa requirements. Thirty days is great for those wanting a short holiday, however, it wasn’t nearly enough time for our Palawan honeymoon. If you plan to stay longer than a month, definitely look into getting a 59-day tourist visa. You can obtain this directly from the embassy or online. If you don’t have time to organise this in advance, you can also extend your visa waiver from the immigration office in the Philippines.

Travel Insurance

You’d rather not think about all of the things that might go wrong on your romantic getaways in Alaska, but these things can and do happen. We like to think of travel insurance as a safety net, as it’s saved our butts big time on more than one occasion. We had our bags stolen, with passports, cameras and a decent chunk of money, and thanks to travel insurance we were able to replace these valuable items.

I fell ill on our honeymoon and had to spend a week in the hospital, which racked up a huge debt. Without travel insurance, we would have been in thousands of dollars of debt. It’s not worth the risk to travel without insurance! Keep your mind of ease on your Alaska honeymoon by travelling smarter and safer with World Nomads travel insurance. These guys are the best in the business with affordable coverage for you and your lover on your Alaska honeymoon travels.
