West York Island or Likas Island (Likas; ; Đảo Dừa), having an area of 18.6 hectares, is the third largest island of the Spratly Islands chain in South China Sea. It is the second largest island among Philippine-occupied Spratly islands. It is wide at its widest part; and in length. It is located 47 miles (76 km) northeast of Pagasa Island (Thitu Island), the town proper of Kalayaan, Palawan. Its highest elevation is . Several Filipino soldiers are stationed here. This island is also being claimed by China, Taiwan and Vietnam. This island is administered by the Philippines as part of Kalayaan, Palawan. Likas is the Tagalog rootword of kalikasan which means nature.
There are no buildings on the island, except for the ruins of houses built by the Japanese soldiers during World War II, and a small Philippine observation post, where Filipino soldiers stationed are taking shelter.
Because it is the second largest island among Philippine-occupied Spratly islands, Kalayaan municipal officials proposed that this island be populated with civilian settlers within the coming years. If accomplished, Likas will be the second barangay of Kalayaan. However, Likas' land area is only 50% of Pagasa's and only naval vessels are currently capable of reaching the island. An estimate of 300 million pesos (US$7.5M) will be needed to construct an airstrip, a docking site, some land reclamation and other structures necessary to support an isolated community.
