wanderlust wednesday: onuk island, balabac palawan, philippines

 Onuk is a privately owned island off of the southern tip of Palawan in the Philippines. Although privately owned, it is rumored that the owner/ mayor of Onuk will let you onto the island to explore for a few hours.
The island is relatively uninhabited, which would make it easy to pretend that the island is your own secret getaway. 

The photos alone make me want to paddle out and visit this little unknown island! It looks absolutely stunning. If you want to learn more about how to get to Onuk, check out this super informative blog post (scroll halfway down until you get to Wednesday). The writers of that blog also took these amazing shots!



The last photo of Onuk Island won a National Geographic contest! Just set me down on this island with my computer and some wifi (and Brian: ) and I think I would be happy for life!

  1. How cool would it be to tell people "Come to my private island"?
