Welcome to Palawan SandCastles

With its rustic island charm, travellers to Palawan SandCastles are sure to find bliss on one of the most beautiful spots on Busuanga Island. Palawan SandCastles features private white sand beaches, beachfront accommodation and a house reef in a private cove.

It is also the base for extraordinary explorations by genuine sit-in sea kayak: Until further notice we’re offering free use of our Navigator sea kayaks to everyone booking SandCastles accommodation through this website. In reserving your room you might be asked for your credit card details but you won’t be charged, only having to pay for your stay in cash once you check-in! And, the offer is open to all classes of rooms including the native backpacker hillside pavilions. This means that a couple may well be paddling a couple of kayaks worth more in pesos than their accommodation!

And, SandCastles also has an outlet of Dugong Dive Center. But don’t fret if you don’t dive: We run daily boat trips into Dugong Bay to snorkel with dugong & paddling around idyllic outlying islands.

Paradise is just a booking away.

    (Jan 2016) Palawan SandCastles is a rustic getaway from city life. With its isolation, natural landscape and seascape, plus all the adventure toys for the taking, it’s like playing Robinson Crusoe with the amenities of the modern world.

    (Feb 18, 2015) SandCastles Palawan is the best resort that I stayed in my whole trip with very reasonable price, helpful staff, very clean and close to nature. There is a rock formation at the end of the resort which is very beautiful and unique. The resort is very quiet and relaxing. It is located in front of the nice beach, you can do many activites such as kayaking and biking around the mountain that is just behind the resort. There are many very white sand beaches close to the resort as well. The beach around resort is very good for snorkeling and if you are lucky enough you can see the grouper. I really enjoyed my holiday at SandCastles. I will go back for sure. Highly recommended for you to stay here.

    (Jan 13-17, 2016) I have never felt such a fabulous escape from stress until I found SandCastles Palawan. I always woke up to the mountain, beautiful beach and wonderful forest. It felt like home and all guests I met were treating each other like family. I enjoyed kayaking at the resort. Most particularly, I never felt lost with the helpful staff there. I chose the boat ride to the resort, which I found was the best thing to do. You can do a lot of activities like snorkeling, kayaking, etc. along the islands. My room was affordable and it felt so awesome that the waves always came underneath my room every night and lulled me into sleep. I am now thinking that anytime I find myself free, there is always SandCastles.
