  • Overview: Pamalican is a small island in the Sulu Sea Quiniluban group of the Cuyo islands, between Palawan and Panay, in the north part of the Palawan province of the Philippines. The island is set in the middle of a 7 square-kilometer coral reef. It has a length of 2.5 kilometers, and measures only 500 meters at its widest point.[1]

    The island was originally exploited as a struggling family-owned plantation. It was then purchased to establish an exclusive resort, re-planted with natural scrub and trees, and equipped with bungalows. The island is private property and belongs in totality to the resort. It is part of the high-end Aman group of resorts, under the name Amanpulo. The resort has been nominated as one of the best island resorts in the world.[1]

    The island is serviced by a Dornier 228-202K plane flying from Manila, which is used to ferry customers and to bring supplies to the resort. Each bungalow (called casitas) comes with a personal buggy for free circulation throughout the island. The atmosphere around the island is extremely tranquil and secluded.[1]

    Diving activities are available, allowing for nice coral viewing and encounters with large turtles and rays. Several windsurf boards and sails are provided at the "Windsurf hut" on the north shore. The shallow protected lagoon there allows for easy windsurfing on a flat surface, and is especially favourable during the northern monsoon season (November to May), when the wind blows onshore.[1]
