Loved the island hopping 3 islands starfish-Luli Island snd Cowrie Island. Starfish not good for swim due to rocky and rough surface. We had a swim at Luli but water is not that clean but smooth surface. Cowrie the last island for lunch and relaxing food is not too bad and they have grilling station with fresh grilled fish.

Admittedly the weather was cloudy which didnt help, but overall I didnt think Honda Bay was worth a visit. The beaches are ok, but nothing compared to those in the Bacuit Archipelago.

Island-hopping in every sense of the word! Starfish Island was great for snorkeling - you will be swimming among a variety of fishes, and you get to feed them too! Luli Island is for the adventurous - jumping boards available, jetski rentals, and food halls are available here. The sandbar stecthes to forever so great spot here for photos and... More

It's a good island hopping day trip. This is worth doing if you have already done the Cave trip or it's cancelled because of the weather.

Got all the good S in the world! Did a DIY tour and decided to see Luli Island, Splash House, Pambato Reef and Cowrie Island. We wanted to have a shared island hopping to have a cheaper excursion but they said there that it might take long time waiting for another group who shares the same itinerary as ours. Ended... More

Let's say it's a good business, we booked in our Hotel pick up around 07:30, we where driving in Puerto Princesa for almost 1,5 hour to pick up other guests. We actually expected swimming gear included but we had to rent that against very high prices (same price as tour-cost). Boat tour was pretty nice. First stop Starbeach island, here... More

The trip was nice. We were treated to a buffet lunch and had to enjoy the beach and sand bar of 3 islands/islets.

We decided to do a DIY trip to Honda Bay. We got to the wharf early, by 8.30am which is a good idea if you are doing the island hopping on your own, so you can beat the queues. Buying and paying fees etc is easy but you just need to go to several counters to pay. English is spoken... More

It was a nice experience. Try going early morning say 8-9 to avoid rush and have the feel of complete privacy.
