This is a perfect option after a volunteering experience in Palawan.
The Palawan Beach Week is an excellent opportunity for any traveller looking for a relaxing week in one of Southeast Asia’s most beautiful locations. Palawan is widely considered to be one of the Philippines’ top destinations, with El Nido being the top spot for white sand beaches and blue water. It is famous for diving and snorkeling, and its diverse marine life offers fantastic opportunities for underwater wildlife spotting.
For those who join this programme, there is plenty of free time to take part in underwater activities, relax on the beach or explore the local area. El Nido is home to friendly locals and travellers can be sure to find a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere.
Two programme activities are scheduled for this week: on Wednesday you will spend a day exploring by kayak, and on Friday there is a relaxing, traditional Filipino massage to look forward to.
Monday, Tuesday & Thursday
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday will all follow the same schedule; start with breakfast at 08:00 before having free time between 09:00 and 12:00 when you will have lunch. At lunch you will be free again until 18:00 when you will have dinner. In your free time you are free to explore the area and take part in the local activities.
Wednesday offers a similar schedule to Monday, Tuesday and Thursday with the exception of the kayaking trip.
Friday starts at 08:00 and includes a full body massage. The rest of the day will be spent in a similar manner to the other days.
During your free time you are encouraged to explore the area and take in the culture. The locals are all friendly and someone will also be able to point you toward new sites or discoveries to enjoy.
