Nope, this isn’t the tree. But yes, it was named after that. Narra, Palawan is a small municipality, primarily used as a place to settle landless people of Luzon. Narra actually means, National Resettlement Rehabilitation Administration, an initiative to help landless Filipinos stabilize their lives.
This unspoiled beauty of Palawan is yet to be flocked with tourists. Relatively untouched, this island has hidden gems all locals and visitors should come and bear witness to. When one is in Narra, Rasa Island is definitely a must-see — it is home to the endangered Philippine Red-Vented Cockatoo and seventy other bird species.
And just a couple of miles away is the Arena Island Turtle Sanctuary where green turtles settle down, mate, and give birth before they are released into the wild. It truly is a magnificent place to be. Other than that, if you’re up for a little adventure, take the fulfilling trip to Estrella Falls. It’s this beautiful hidden waterfalls. You can take a dip and let the rush of the water wash away all of your worries. You’ll also be welcomed by a band of monkeys playfully swinging on the trees or occasionally drinking from the stream.
And since it’s in Palawan, Narra is also home to rich coral reefs, teeming with rare and beautiful marine life. Just put on your snorkel and you’re in for an underwater sightseeing and adventure.
Narra is a haven of nature — unspoiled, untouched, and most importantly, uncrowded.
