Named after the Sanskrit word for peace, (Aman), and the Tagalog word for island (Pulo), Amanpulo is a serene retreat offering the pure white sands, turquoise seas and endless blue skies for which the Philippine archipelago is famed. The entire island of Pamalican is dedicated to Amanpulo, fringed by seven square kilometres of pristine coral reef and lapped by the tranquil Sulu Sea.Amanpulo on Pamalican is part of the Quiniluban Group of Cuyo Islands, situated in the north of the Philippine province of Palawan. Located 288 kilometres south of AMANPULO Manila, Pamalican is five kilometres long and only 500 metres across at its widest point.
Amanpulo’s facilities enjoy a spacious layout complementing their natural surroundings. The resort’s casitas are situated on the beach, amongst the treetops or on the hillside overlooking the Sulu Sea. Each has its own private buggy allowing independent travel on the island.Amanpulo is tropical in climate and is situated outside the typhoon belt. This means that it enjoys less rainfall than the rest of the Philippines. Generally, the dry season runs from November to May, with scattered showers between June and October. January is usually the coolest month, with temperatures averaging about 25°C (77°F), and May the hottest, with an average temperature of about 28°C (82°F).
