First a disclaimer - I didn't do my due diligence on Blue Cove before I visited. It was booked by a friend as stop two on a four stop holiday on Palawan, the first if which was Daluyon Resort in Sebang. It was called Blue Cove Resort and I'd reserved a 'Family Suite' so I was sure all was ok.... More

This is placed in Heaven. Remote (1hr by boat from Port Barton), wild, 25-30 degrees all day long, just you, the beach and the jungle and mountain behind. Amazing sunsets, crystal clear water, kayaks and few trails for hiking. Take care, is not a Maldive accomodation, despite the scenery. If you are ready to live in basic bungalows and have... More

We stayed at Blue Cove over Christmas and enjoyed it. The biggest plus for me was the snorkeling there - they have a few masks, snorkels and fins that you can use free of charge. We loved being able to just snorkle off the beach, although the nicest parts of the reefs are a bit further out (after approx. 70m... More

Friends were going to El Nido so we grab the opportunity to escape the "concrete jungle of Manila" and head for paradise to Blue Cove of Albaguen Island in the western side of Palawan. I will give updates on my most recent visit. The road leading to San Vicente although still under construction is longer by 50 minutes travel time,... More
