Nope, this isn't the Maldives or Bora-Bora. These stilt cottages can actually be found in one of our very own islands. Welcome to Huma Island! One of Southeast Asia's last frontiers, the tropical island is secluded in the province of Palawan, just less than two hours away from the heart of Manila by plane.

Huma Island takes its name after a vessel that sailed the seas at the peak of the galleon trade bringing various spices and herbs from the Middle East to the rest of the world. Bearing the legend of the vessel and its adventurous captain, Ibrahim, the island is known for its natural treasures, riches, and undeniable charm.
