Nestled in the Sulu Sea in northeastern Palawan is the perfect travel bubble destination: a tranquil private island called Banwa.

Recently voted ‘Private Island of the Year’ in the Destination Deluxe Awards, the six-hectare island is a marine-protected habitat, and a sanctuary for flora and fauna.

There are only six well-appointed villas on the island, each with its own pool.

Book the whole island for ultimate privacy. Activities include tennis, golf, bird watching, hiking, dive trips to Tubbataha, and on a clear night, gazing at the Milky Way. Honestly, what are you waiting for?
