On the way, stop anywhere along the northern tip of Palawan; you will find some of the most beautiful, untouched islands. Spread around are numerous pristine coral lagoons, some accessible only at low tide via a small opening in the surrounding cliff walls. In the protected inlet of Malampaya Sound, a unique species of Irrawaddy dolphin has evolved. There are lots of seagrass beds and mangroves along the shores to explore with kayaks or personal watercraft. The surrounding forest landscape is inhabited by several unique animal species, including the Palawan binturong, Palawan pangolin, Palawan stink badger, Palawan tree shrew and Palawan porcupine. A number of endemic bird species are also found in the protected area like the Palawan peacock pheasant, Palawan hornbill, Tabon scrub fowl, talking myna and Philippine cockatoo.
