Banwa Private Island has launched Unscripted Adventures, offering guests activities such as waterfall chasing, sandbank picnics, snorkelling with turtles and watching the fireflies light up the night sky.
Located in north-eastern Palawan in the Sulu Sea, Banwa Private Island’s Aquos Foundation helps support, nurture and protect the island’s delicate ecosystems.
Guests can join in the protection of the critically endangered Hawkbill Turtles by setting up conservation practices to protect preferential areas for the turtles to lay their eggs, or help in deploying over 400 structures to stimulate the regeneration of corals around the island.
For adventure-seekers, travel through the Ilian River and take a short trek in the lowland forest through the remote barangay of Bagumbayan to the Disay Falls, or head by boat to Modessa island for a day of fish feeding, snorkelling, scuba diving, windsurfing and kayaking as well as a picnic breakfast or lunch, on the island or a nearby sandbank.
Those preferring a slower pace of adventure can ride a boat to explore the hidden treasure of Barbacan River, one of the oldest water flow crossing the town of San Nicolas, and discover mangrove-lined banks which support a rich and diverse ecosystem. Then at sunset, sit and relax while watching fireflies on tree branches light up the night.
Banwa Private Island’s Unscripted Adventures start from US$250 per experience per person, and are available to guests staying on the island.
