What to see in Narra:
If you’re planning a holiday in Narra, here are some must-see destinations that we highly recommend:
Standing at 1,726 meters above sea level, Mount Victoria is one of the most scenic mountains in Palawan. It is home to a unique array of biodiversity, including some rare species of pitcher plants.
A popular spot among locals and tourists alike, Estrella Falls is perfect for swimming in refreshing waters and enjoying a riverside picnic.
Home to the endangered Katala, also known as the Philippine Red-Vented Cockatoo, Rasa Island boasts more than 100 species of birds, making it an ideal destination for birdwatchers.
This island is a nesting site for green turtles and hawksbill turtles, making it a must-see for wildlife enthusiasts.
When to go:
Narra can be visited throughout the year, as it offers unique experiences in every season.
The best time to hike Mount Victoria and visit Estrella Falls is during the dry season, which runs from December to early June. During this time, the weather is cooler and drier, making it perfect for outdoor activities.
On the other hand, the wet season, which occurs from June to October, is characterized by hot and humid weather with frequent short bursts of heavy rainfall, and a prevailing wind from the west. While this may not be ideal for hiking or outdoor activities, it is the perfect time to witness the lush greenery and blooming flowers that Narra has to offer.
