Double Island

Double Island in the municipality of Quezon is a part of Palawan province in the Philippines. The area is characterized by limestone cliffs, lush jungles, and a myriad of enchanting island hideaways. The famous Tabon Caves, a protected reservation known as the Philippines’ ‘cradle of civilization’, are close by. 

Towering coconut trees, stretches of sandy beach and crystalline waters dominate Double Island’s landscape. The sea surrounding is safe, free of mud, pollutants and rocks making it ideal for swimming in both high and low tides.

The island comprises three separately titled areas and a further 20m-wide salvage area, with a traditional home and a potable water source. There are telecommunications relays within 5km of the island—a good Internet and cellular phone connection are established. 

Provincial capital Puerto Princesa is just 121km away, via the West Philippine Sea Highway, or 171km away via the Sulu Sea Highway. Puerto Princesa International Airport is currently the closest airport to the island. Just 2km from the pier, another commercial airport is budgeted by the local government, meaning access could become even easier. 

The island is best accessed via a cemented pier at Balintang, some 3.5 km away from the island itself and is available for sale either outright, in lots or as part of a development partnership with the current owners.
