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.

8 Private Islands for Sale in The Philippines

Dao Island ($7,500,000)

  • Location: Busuanga, Palawan
  • Size: 118 acres, ~47.8 hectares
  • Description: 11km from shore, 17km southwest of Salvacion
  • Ownership: Leasehold
  • Development: Non Developed
  • Listing: Dao Island
  • MapSee on Google Earth

Also known as West Nalaut, Dao Island spans 47.9 hectares and is located off the west coast of Busuanga Island – the second largest body of land within Palawan province. 

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 Island ($5,600,000)

  • Location: Surigao del Norte, General Luna
  • Size: 3.6 acres, ~1.5 hectares
  • Description: 500m from shore, 4km SW of General Luna, 10 mins from General Luna
  • Ownership: Leasehold
  • Development: Non Developed
  • Listing: Lamudi
  • Map: See on Google Earth

Existing under both the Janoyoy and Hanoyoy monikers, this 3.6-acre property offers a white sand beach, dense interior vegetation, rock pools, and proximity to the mainland – a compact yet rich private island. 

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.

Purchasable under a leasehold contract, Janoyoy is a tempting investment.

Calampuan Island ($4,500,000)

  • Location: Capayas, Dumaran
  • Size: 18.2 acres, 7.39 hectares
  • Description: 2km from shore, 4km west of Dumaran Port
  • Ownership: Information upon request
  • Development: Non Developed
  • Listing: Lamudi
  • Map: See on Google Earth

Also known as Calangpowgn Island, Calampuan is a 7.39-hectare property nestled between the northern mass of Palawan and the west coast of Dumaran Island. 

Aside from a prime location in one of the Phillipines’ most desirable provinces, Calampuan’s resumé is headlined by a white sand beach that curves away from the island’s interior and reaches into the surrounding waters. The rest of the island features dense vegetation coverage atop undulating hills. 

With its natural resources, undeveloped status, and tropical aesthetic, Calampuan is a testament to the uncapped potential of private islands in the Philippines.

Ligpo Island ($6,500,000)

  • Location: Province of Batangas
  • Size: 6.72 acre, ~2.7 hectares
  • Description: 100m from shore, 200m west of Bauan Divers Sanctuary Resort

One of the Philippines’ turnkey investment opportunities; Ligpo Island comprises one acre of land in a protected marine environment complete with a luxury four-bedroom residence and heated swimming pool.

The property’s Balayan Bay location not only grants it proximity to and from Manila – residents can complete the journey from the capital in two hours by car, or 20 minutes by helicopter – but also direct access to some of the best diving waters in the country.

Finally, Ligpo Island targets a clientele looking for immediate, yet long-term, leisure – the property is being offered on a 999-year lease from its current owners.

Double Island ($2,500,000)

  • Location: Isugod, Quezon
  • Size: ~20 acres, ~8.3 hectares
  • Description: 2km from shore, 15km NE of Villa Esperanza Hardin
  • Ownership: Leasehold
  • Development: Developed
  • Listing: Dot Property
  • Map: See on Google Earth

Double Island is a ~20-acre parcel of land that serves as a testament to the natural beauty of Palawan – the province is an exemplar of Philippine splendour and is consistently voted as one of the world’s finest island archipelagos. 

Double’s reflection of Palawan’s acclaim begins with its offering of immaculate, white-sand beaches. The island also comprises dense foliage coverage, shores rich with marine life, and several traditional beach residences. 

While easily accessed via the airport in Puerto Princesa, reaching the island is set to become even more streamlined with the budgeting of a new airport just two kilometres from Double’s transit pier. 

Investors can either purchase the island in its entirety or inject capital as part of a development partnership with the current ownership.

  • Description: 100m from shore, 5km east of Surigao, 20 min from the mainland
  • Ownership: Leasehold
  • Development: Non Developed
  • Listing: Carousell
  • Map: See on Google Earth

Kabo Island, also known as Kabusgan Island, resides just off the northern tip of Mindanao. Though, the property’s most notable neighbour is Siargao Island – arguably the Philippines’ finest surfing destination. 

Spanning ~58 acres, Kabo’s main features include mangroves along one shoreline, a reef located half a kilometre north of the island, six springs that provide water, potential farmland, existing pineapple growths, and significant developable land. 

Simply put, Kabo presents a valuable opportunity to expand into the Philippine real estate market – be it commercial or for private use.
