Home to the luxury resort Amanpulo, Pamalican is about 90 hectares and has 5.5 kilometers of pure, white sandy beach. Walking around the island in a full circle will take about 90 minutes. Pamalican is surrounded by a 3 square-mile coral reef.
The island is accessible only by Amanpulo's private charter plane, a Dornier 228-202K, which flies 360 kilometers due southwest direct from Manila. The island itself is calm, tranquil and peaceful. There are casitas and personal buggies/golf carts for sleeping and getting around this secluded island. Many employees are from nearby Manamoc Island and they will do their best to pamper visitors lucky enough to make it to this world-class destination.

With nature as your playground, engage in Amanpulo's many sports on offer: sailing, diving, kayaking, swimming and tennis are all on the menu.
Between March and October on some islands, female turtles come up from the sea to lay their eggs on the beach. This nighttime activity requires patience in order to see the exact moment when the eggs hatch and the baby turtles scuttle off to the sea.

Located on a private island, Amanpulo is possibly the perfect beach escape. Pamalican island is secluded and offers a variety of sea, sand and tropical-retreat pleasures, in exclusive comfort and in traditionally styled accommodation. The 40 Beach, Hillside and Treetop Casitas are modeled on local bahay kubo dwellings, and each has its own golf cart for island exploration. All casitas come with a flat-screen satellite television, DVD/CD player and iPod dock, all connected to a surround-sound system. This romantically remote island caters to those who wish to 'hammock' and beach-comb during their days in paradise, and also to those who seek a more active agenda of ocean adventures. There are tennis courts, a high-tech, air-conditioned gym, and a serene, 100-foot pool. The open-air Garden and Beach Salas are discreetly secluded and offer holistic body treatments. Wi-fi is available throughout the property. Amanpulo is a one-hour flight on the resort's private plane from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) in Manila.
