Amanpulo, a luxury beach resort in Palawan, Philippines, introduces a new adventure, The Golden South Sea Pearl, which takes guests beyond the bounds of Pamalican into the Palawan archipelago to explore the birthplace of the eponymous national gem.
Guests are invited to discover the story behind these living gems and the intricate art and science of how it has come to possess their unique lustre amid the pristine waters that produce them.
A chartered helicopter will bring guests on a 45-minute flight across the archipelago to Taytay, Palawan, for an exclusive visit to the pearl farm of Jewelmer to witness the processes with a guided tour of the oyster hatchery and laboratory for pearl grafting and harvesting, alongside an opportunity to witness the local divers in their daily trips to the underwater farm.
After the tour, a speedboat will take guests to a secluded beach for a Filipino-style picnic lunch and the option to snorkel around the bay’s untouched coral garden.
Reservations for the tour are required at least five days in advance.
