The remote islands of the Calamian Archipelago, where you’ll find Ariara, are a ‘last frontier’, untouched and unspoiled by tourism and development. Our island and it’s surrounding waters are a sanctuary for a vast diversity of wildlife. To read about our conservation efforts click here.
In the Air: Sea eagles nest high in the rocks and depending on the season you might spot owls, kingfishers, woodpeckers, egrets and flower peckers, amongst many other species of birdlife. Beautiful butterflies, bats and fascinating insects abound.
On the Ground: Magnificent harmless water monitor lizards which grow to a length of around 1.5m live here. Wild orchids and carnivorous pitcher plants flourish in the tropical forests.
In the Sea: A huge diversity of marine life thrives in the clear warm waters of the protected habitat of our private reef including four endangered species of turtle some of which return every year to lay their eggs along our main beach. On rare occasions you might stumble across docile dugongs grazing on the seagrass. The coral reefs are teeming with colourful fish and coral for you to discover.
