This gem of an island is owned by the husband of the tour operator’s sister. I asked if I could develop it with profit sharing but he is adamant about selling only. Ten million pesos anyone? We often camp here overnight on our boat journeys. Best coral reefs I have seen yet and will upload a video once I’m done editing.
Collecting corals to make beach pristine soft.
Getting the evening fire ready for fish roasting.
To get here you can join or book one of our private custom Palawan boat tours between El Nido and Coron. Tons of paradise beach islands to see along the way, excellent snorkeling in crystal clear waters, caves to explore, Spanish fortress and much more. Completely off the beaten path!
We are a family operation managing private custom boat tours in the beautiful Palawan area, and are happy to help travelers with their plans through the country, having traveled a lot of it ourselves and planning to visit it all.

Kindly let me know details concerning sale of Takling Island.
Should be about 10.5 million pesos (about $225k), but this request spurred me to write the following post on facebook: “okay, maybe i’m jumping the gun with excitement here, but just got an offer from the net from someone interested in buying one of the deserted islands posted on my site for boat tours, and it got me thinking. if the sale goes through, should give me enough to buy my own boat, move all my shit on that and move to the sea like a pirate, exempt from local laws they say. make money from the tours myself, solar panels on roof, and while on or in between tours i can explore the 1000+ islands in this area, for future potential tour stops and compile a database for more sales. the constant flow of volunteers could be dropped of on the various islands to develop them with the gardening type work i have been doing. what an awesome dream.” Nothing wrong with dreaming!
