Traveling from Coron to Palawan by boat, sleeping on deserted beaches, snorkeling the most beautiful reefs, eating fresh veggies, roasting a pig for the boys, and playing volleyball with local island girls. That sums up about five days of island-hopping with the eco/cultural organization of Tao Philippines.
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
First night on a deserted island somewhere near Coron
Sleeping under the stars, how much better can it get?
Early morning yoga sessions on the beach
The boat (it might look small, but it’s not. There’s an upper deck you can chill on, bean bags and everything)
There’s nothing like a nice meal after a heavy work-out
Just hanging out at another deserted beach
The green side of Tao Philippines. They take organic gardening very seriously, and they help out the communities on the island with the profits they make. Women on the islands are offered massage courses/training, boys are offered jobs in the garden.
The crew and the guests
You can also do the reverse trip, from Palawan to Coron. Costs are 400 EUR for 5 days. That includes everything, 3 to 5 meals per day, unlimited water, drinks, snorkeling gear and of course accommodation (do not expect a 5 star hotel, it’s sleeping on the beach in nothing but a mosquito net and a platform, or a basic hut).
The good thing is that you also help out the Filipino community. We saw where the money went, they really make a difference. More info on social and eco Tao projects, visit their website.
