Star Fish Island, Palawan

We arrived at Starfish Island at about 3 P.M. after visiting Snake Island. It is called Starfish Island because there are a lot of starfishes in its shallow waters (we later found out that the high tide and the low tide make a big difference on the island – see photos below).


Again, there were available huts to stay on. You are also warned about stepping on Stone Fishes and thus it’s safer to wear water shoes when swimming. We actually didn’t swim as we saw that the sand of the beach wasn’t that good for swimming. And we were already tired so we just took photos of us roaming the island. Of course, we also got photos of ourselves with the starfishes. We left after just 30 minutes so we could rest early as we were to go to the Underground River tomorrow and knowing that we’d be back in Honda Bay a day after tomorrow.
