Despite the limitations, however, what you are allowed to visit suffice as far as fun and adventure go for tourists wandering to any of them.

Speaking of islands in Honda Bay, the following are some of the most popular places to visit while going island hopping:
Cowrie Island – named after the sea snail common to the area, Cowrie, the Cowrie Island was opened as an alternative tourist area for tourists away from the Pandan Island, located nearby
Star Fish Island – an island renowned for its great concentration of star fishes all throughout Palawan. The name speaks for itself.
Luli Island – Derived from the local saying “Lulubog-Lilitaw,” hence the name “Lu-Li” meaning something which sets (technically, sinks) and rise (but not necessarily referring to the sun), Luli Island is interesting for its ability to disappear when the tide is high and then re-appear when it is low.
