Islands For Sale in The Philippines

Latest listing added: March, 2023

Private islands for sale in the Philippines

In its entirety, the Philippine archipelago comprises upwards of 7,640 islands, making it one of the world’s largest archipelagos. Though, only around 2000 of said islands are inhabited. 

Islands are sold on the Philippine market as freehold or leasehold properties. The former is not possible for foreign investors, though there are some processes that circumnavigate any obstructions. Regardless, most islands properties in the Philippines are therefore sold via lease, granting the purchasing party stewardship of the land for a designated length of time.

The Philippines: a nation characterised by its welcoming population, rich cuisine, an abundance of beaches, and first-class aquatic leisure opportunities. From the unearthly landscapes of Coron to the surfing shores of Siargao and from the sweeping beaches of Cebu to the reefs of Palawan, the Southeast Asian nation has become synonymous with the planet’s best island destinations. 

Long stretches of tropical heat and sun are to be expected, as are intense periods of monsoon rain. Temperatures, however, remain consistently high throughout the calendar year – ideal for beach leisure, sunbathing, and adventure.

Dao is an exceptional property for several reasons. 

Foremost, Dao is the only known island within the Palawan province with a clear title suitable for commercial development – other private islands within the region frequently contend with underlying indigenous claims.

Ownership rights aside, the property boasts an inspiring roster of features: a primary sand beach, several beach coves, 80-metre cliffs in some sections of the three-kilometre coastline, dense interior rainforest coverage, ample wildlife, and a surrounding coral reef. 

Undeveloped and brimming with paradisiacal attractions, Dao Island exhibits abundant potential as a tourist resort or private retreat.

Janoyoy is located off the southeastern coast of Siargao Island – one of the most happening tourist destinations in the Philippines and the country’s surfing capital. However, regardless of its touristic ascension, much of the land remains raw and undeveloped. This not only leaves room for investors to capitalise on commercial developments in the region, but also guarantees peace and serenity for island owners.
