Seventy percent of the island is covered with tropical forest and home to a wide range of flora and fauna. You can reach the island by taking a flight to Tuguegarao from where you can take a 3-hour ride to St. Ana and San Vincente port.

Hi, we are an association that exists of fisher folks, farmers and their families of Palaui Island. We started this community-based tourism project 8 years ago to improve the lives of our community and to create another way of income instead of being dependent on fishing for livelihood. We have been supported and trained by different organizations to be able to offer tourism related services like guiding you on snorkel trips around the island, trekking and bird watching. We welcome you to come and explore our beautiful island!
