Philippines Solo & Group Travel Adventures

Deep in the Palawan archipelago, there are countless remote islands with a few huts and little else...

that is our destination

Island Hopping

February 19 - 26 2023

Island Hopping

Disconnect with technology and reconnect with nature


Known as “The Last Ecological Frontier of the Philippines," Palawan is the stuff remote island dreams are made of. Crystal waters, limestone cliffs, and underwater caves await you.


Takes the Cake

Palawan was voted the BEST island in the world two years in a row by Travel + Leisure, beating out destinations like Santorini and Bali. It’s hard not to tell why with beaches left and right surrounded by sparkling blue water and “pinch me” moment views.

Disconnect to Reconnect

Good luck getting reliable WiFi or cell service out here, and that’s just the way we like it. Goodbye cell phone, hello living life. Here’s to more time for reading on the beach, hanging with island pups, or snoozing in a hammock.

Fish are friends… and food

Palawan is known for some of the freshest seafood in the world. While we love to snorkel with our fishy friends, we also appreciate a good meal. The locals are pros at using the various island resources and ingredients to create a healthy and delicious diet to keep us energized for long days. Who needs Whole Foods when you’ve got beach coconuts and fish you just caught?

Seascape of Dreams

You’d be hardpressed to find a more picturesque destination than Palawan. In front of you are crystal clear waters. Turn around, and you’ve got tall, jagged cliffs covered with tropical palm trees. Take a swim, and you’re surrounded by sunken boats and caves filled with colorful sea creatures all waiting for you to explore. The quest for paradise is neverending!

Captain of the hot mess express: My mess is my message.

This quarantine is allowing me to dig a little deeper into myself. I don’t have the answer to everything in life, but I wear my heart on my sleeve, I always have, I always will. At 26 years old, I’ve been through a hell of a lot. Now, during these challenging times, we can choose to let it make us cold, emotionally unavailable, bitter... OR continue to give our fullest self to everyone in our life. No matter how kicked down, or hurt, I promise to always show back up, with more love. Set boundaries, and if you fall down, stand back up, stronger than before. Things aren’t always easy, you’re allowed to be a hot mess and be honest about it. That’s my message. More mess, more love.

I’m all over the place these days. Some mornings I’m up at 6, and do a workout, teach a workout. Some days, I sleep till 12, and don’t even know what day of the week it is.
Also- never not posting Philippines pictures.

Throwback to a month ago when a group of strangers, sand-covered, sun-kissed, boat-swayed & disconnected from their normal lives became a community. ✨

Sending love and light in these times. Stay safe


My fridge loves Polaroids; my heart loves Palawan. Technically home in NY, but still swaying to both the boat and the beat. #sybpalawan

3 surprises from Palawan: The kindness and curiosity of the local kiddos, Palawan yoga puppies, and how underrated sarongs are (can’t wait for your kind words on that front @runsnackrepeat)... #surfyogabeer #sybpalawan

Does everyone booze?

We get it- you’re either too busy, don’t know anyone else going, or just accidentally spent way too much on drinks this weekend. Now let’s cut the BS and get real. There will never be the perfect time to get away, being the busy human that you are. We actively encourage people to come alone on our adventures so they can meet people outside of their usual social circles. Everyone that chooses an SYB trip is there to get outside their comfort zone and meet like-minded sweaty people. Money spent on experiences is what every 100 year old says is the most important thing we can do while we’re young. Listen to Gramps and get ready to squat it out with us!
We are firmly committed to providing quality product. We detox to retox because we know that a balanced life is the best life. Your workouts will be led by some of the best fitness instructors around the country, so you’ll be living your best life in paradise while doing 100 pushups and situps a day (we make it fun, we promise). Seriously though, when was the last time you came back from vacation with a more defined six-pack? The friendships and memories that you make on our adventures so are important to us! We pride ourselves in creating experiences that will change your life.
First of all, we’re calling bull on that work event that “just happened” to pop up. But we’ll get over it and see you on the next trip. While deposits are non-transferable or refundable, your payment might be depending on time of cancellation! We will work with you to try to push the payment (minus deposit) to another trip or we can issue a refund, again depending on time of cancellation. What we can’t help you out with? The FOMO that’ll come from watching the adventure on Instagram stories from home. Check out the Terms and Conditions and About pages for more info.
Be safe and you won’t be sorry. We usually choose destinations with low crime rates but it is always wise to stay vigilant. General rule of thumb: if losing X valuable is going to ruin your trip, don’t bring it! (So keep your Yeezys and nice jewelry at home.) Petty theft is the most common type of crime that exists, so be wary of pickpockets looking for cash and always watch your bags. As a precautionary measure we typically provide safes in each room. We’ve yet to experience any considerable theft on our trips (let’s keep it that way).
Do I need to be a fitness babe or muscle man to come on these trips? No way! Not every human being walks around looking like Gigi Hadid- we feel that. All different levels are welcome- even if the only time you’ve ever broken a sweat is hustling to the fridge during commercial breaks. Coming to all workouts are highly encouraged but not mandatory and we make adjustments for various fitness levels and injuries. The point is to try something new and make memories that you’ll never forget. Check out some BLOG POSTS to hear from other non-Schwarzeneggers about their experience.
We won’t leave you hanging after you drop dat coin. We’ll email several times along the way: first after you book, second about a month and a half before the trip, and third two weeks before. Then we’ll make sure you know where to be and when. Unlike that dude from last night, we’ll be hitting you up.
Our adventures could go up to 8 days, which means you should bring at least $400 USD, unless maybe you’re feeling extra generous at the bar. Most meals are covered, but sometimes we’ll dine out and it’s a good idea to have some cha-ching. Credit cards are usually accepted but if not, we’ll let you know beforehand. But for now, get on bringin home that bread.
Take your digital detox to the next level and join us in the Philippines, get ready to step outside of your comfort zone.
This will probably be the Amalfi Coast. Nothing rejuvenates the soul like washing down plates of fresh pasta with local limoncello and floating in the clear waters of Capri.
For sure Sayulita. Between squats we’ll hydrate with shots. Workout, tan, workout, tequila, workout, pass out. You’ll come home stronger and get compliments on your sexy tan and super toned arms.
Hands down this has to be our OG trip - Nicaragua! IT IS Surf Yoga Beer!.
We're all about letting loose and not taking life too seriously, we respect choice and there's no pressure to drink if you don't want to.
