Palawan offers ‘museums’ of ocean life

The El Nido Resorts in Palawan has been attracting luxury travelers these days due to its rare marine life, endangered species, and undeveloped natural territories that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.

Alexandra Cousteau, filmmaker and environmental advocate for the oceans, visited three of the four resorts in the islands of Miniloc, Lagen, and Pangulasian.

The granddaughter of legendary explorer Jacques Yves Cousteau was with her husband Fritz Neumeyer, a green architect based in Berlin, and their two children.

Their five-year-old daughter Clementine also experienced snorkeling for the first time. Cousteau was in the Philippines for the campaigns of Oceana, the largest international environmental organization concerned primarily with oceans conservation.

El Nido Resorts marketing director Joey Bernardino said they expect that her visit will attract many other guests who share her passion for the environment.

The Philippines is part of the Coral Triangle, the global center of marine biodiversity. El Nido Resorts offers guests the advantage of over 800 marine species, 400 kinds of corals, and 500 marine vertebrae within an area of 200 kilometers.
