All about the Balabac Adventure | 5 Days.

Venture off the beaten path to visit the municipality of Balabac which is home to some of the Palawan’s most beautiful islands.

Balabc is a secluded hidden paradise in the southernmost part of Palawan, which consists of some 36 virgin islands blessed with white sand beaches and turquoise water. The islands of Balabac are absolutely breathtaking and they are known as the Maldives of the Philippines.

These islands are also an invaluable refuge for many species of wildlife such as the Philippines mouse-deer, dugongs, saltwater crocodiles, sawfishes, and sea turtles.

While it’s not an easy undertaking to travel to Balabac, the unspoiled sceneries and rich marine life make it very worthwhile.

Our tour package Balabac Adventure 5 Days / 4 Nights provides a convenient and hassle-free way to explore the spectacular islands of Balabac.
