Noa Noa Island Taytay Palawan: 11-Days on a Private Island Estate

I’ve always wondered how it’s like to live in a small island. Of course I imagined there would be palm trees, a nice beach, hammocks, refreshing drinks, native huts and endless view of the ocean. But when I took a project for one of the private islands in Taytay Palawan named Noa Noa Island, I never expected to be staying about 11-days in this luxurious island where I was the only guest while working on a project. It was one of my memorable escapes to a not-so-known island surrounded by one of the most astounding marine sanctuary I’ve ever swam on.

Never been much into taking a photo of myself. Never thought to be photogenic nor keen on taking “I-love-myself” photos. I also don’t think of posting my photo here as it might scare people away once they open this page. Hehehe. But once in a blue moon I do decide to flip around my camera and take a self-photo. This was an attempt to take an underwater photo and guess what those fishes just decided to literally butt-in the picture and ruin it.

Anyways, this was taken under the waters of Apulit island, home of the high-end resort Club Noah in Taytay Palawan. So far the best snorkeling and diving experience I had lately. I was really estatic on finally setting foot on the famed “Last Frontier” after last week’s delay, I thought I would never get a chance to stp on this rock. But fate’s been kind and granted me this trip. It was quite a place considering we were only two Filipino guest and most of the crowd there are Koreans and a small number of Japanese Nationals.
