< Back to Amenities

Huma Island Resort & Spa is located in the northern part of Palawan, a province that is often called the Philippines’ last frontier. Declared as a fish and wildlife sanctuary in 1967, Palawan features more than 11,000 sqm of pristine coral reef and countless colourful marine species. It lies at the heart of the Coral Triangle, the 5.7 million square kilometres of ocean known as “Amazon of the Seas”.

Simply put, Huma Island is the perfect vantage point for remarkable diving adventure. Our island resort in Palawan has its very own Dive Centre that offers learning courses, diving escapades, and island experience programs, all under the guidance of expert in-house dive instructors.

Huma Island is surrounded by a shallow reef that is home to a diverse ecosystem. The resort is also a short boat ride away from some of Palawan’s most famous dive destinations, such as the following:
