Have you always wanted to go to the Maldives without breaking the bank? In the northernmost part of Palawan is Huma Island, the first place to bring the Maldivian resort experience to the country.
Googling Huma Island’s photos is enough to take your breath away — whether in front or aerial view, the island’s cerulean waters, beautiful greenery, and outstanding white sand never fail to impress local and foreign tourists. Dubbed as the “Maldives of the Philippines,” Huma Island is a taste of paradise — every spot in the island is photo-worthy, restaurants with delicious cuisines are ready to cater to visitors, places for meditation are all around, and its sunset is most stunning. The number of things you can do in the island — think swimming, lying lazily on a hammock, sipping wine while in the pool, playing different activities with kids in their play area — will truly make you say “I don’t want to leave this place.”
Huma Island is located at Diciligan Island, Busuanga, Palawan.
