Isla Pandan
Attraction
0.16 km away

Isla Pandan offers the most number of activities out of all the islands in Honda Bay. Aside from swimming and snorkelling, the resort that currently oversees the island's operations also offers watersports activities such as SUP, reef gliding, and kayaking. They also have banana boats and UFO couches for travelers who come in groups and would like to have fun in the water together. There are also jet skis available for rent. Birdwatchers also frequent the area to catch a glimpse of the Mantanani scops owl, a fist-sized owl endemic to the Philippines and Borneo.

Starfish Island
Attraction
3.29 km away

Starfish Island was named so because of the abundance of the sea critter in the area. Travelers are not prohibited from picking up the starfish, but they are still encouraged to handle these creatures with care. Although the island's waters are clear enough to offer a view of the thriving marine life, it's advisable to bring snorkelling gear when visiting Starfish Island to fully appreciate its colorful underwater community composed of parrotfish, rabbitfish, and yellow tail fusilier, among others. Cottages are available for rent for P50.

Luli Island
Attraction
5.24 km away

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!
