healthy holiday: tao philippines expeditions, palawan

1-tao

I love the idea of a healthy holiday because it means you come back without having to feel like you have to detox or make up for the time you’ve spent being overly indulgent (well, at least that’s how I feel anyway!).

The Tao Philippines Expeditions boat trips aren’t exactly known for being a ‘healthy holiday’ (which is often the name given for yoga, detox or beach spa-type destinations), but more of an off-the-beaten track adventure. You get plenty of sun, sleep, healthy fresh food from the ocean, an abundance of exotic fruit and endless chances to snorkel, swim, kayak or explore different islands every day.

And because you’re living as close to nature as it gets (think sleeping under the stars and getting water from a well for your morning shower), it encourages you to totally switch off. You might even find it gives you the time to really reenergise and reset… Or just be reminded of how little you actually need to live a happy and healthy life.

I took these photos from my July 2013 Tao boat trip mixed in with a few pics from my cousin’s expedition a year prior.

Yours from a place of coconuts and warm beaches (well, I wish),
