Cowrie Island is usually the last stop in the Honda Bay Tour. This boomerang-shaped sanctuary has amenities for watersports activities such as banana boats and kayaks. On a good day, you might even encounter schools of flying fish leaping out the azure waters! Snorkelling is also offered in the area. What Cowrie Island is famous for, however, is its abundant spread of delectable meals during lunchtime. The buffet costs P200 per head, and for visitors who'd like to rest their feet while admiring the view, cottages that can seat up to 10 people are available for P250.
Pambato Reef is a famous snorkelling site found in the middle of Honda Bay. The whole reef spans 16.49 hectares and has an average depth of 13 meters. This marine sanctuary was discovered by boatmen and was officially opened to the public on August 2008. It is composed of a thriving community of branch and ear corals that serve as home to schools of barracuda, lapu-lapu, sergeant major, parrotfish, and the friendly spadefish, among others. Exploring the vicinity would take 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on the current.
The name is a diminutive of "lulubog-litaw," a distinct characteristic of the island which causes it to change shape depending on the tides. Come high tide, the only sight you'll see are the cottages and the restaurant which seem to float above the water. Known for the vast expanse of its sandbars and its undisturbed mangrove forest, Luli Island also has amenities that would please the thrill-seeking beachgoer such as its 12-foot diving board. Snorkeling is also a popular activity since there are schools of fishes that would bravely swim towards curious onlookers!
