Island OasisThe Palawan archipelago in the Philippines is a tropical paradise known for its natural beauty and limestone cliffs. One of my favorite experiences was the afternoon we hired a banka to explore the northern part of the province.
After visiting some great snorkeling reefs, we passed a tiny, deserted island called Isla Walang Lang-aw. My husband and I asked our guide if it was possible to visit it. He smiled and nodded as he passed us a pair of snorkels and fins. We excitedly swam ashore pretending to be castaways. We spent the next half hour alone on the island island, exploring its rocky cove and lounging on the beach to take in the fantastic views of the neighboring islands.
