Iris Island Resort is located on Darab Island, one of the Calamian Group of Islands of Northern Palawan in the Philippines. This area is often called the Last Frontier and is world renowned for its pristine waters, pearl farms, magnificent natural beauty, and world class scuba diving and snorkeling. We are part of the municipality of Culion, where Culion Island is a historical site, where you can find a beautiful church from the Spanish Colonial period, and a museum of its history as a former leper colony.

Less than one minute boat ride away from our island shore and 37meters below the surface of the ocean lies our house wreck, the Akitsushima, a Second World War sunken shipwreck. It is one of the 11 WW II wrecks found in our area, world famous for scuba diving excursions.  Should you be interested in a scuba dive, we can organize through neighboring scuba diving companies.
