One of the most safest and tourist-friendly places, Palawan is sought after by many travel enthusiasts visiting the Philippines
Palawan is an archipelagic province of the Philippines best known for its pristine beaches, gorgeous mountains and amazing biodiversity. Nominated as the world’s ‘best island’ three times in a row, Palawan Island is a place that should definitely not be missed.
Breath-taking views are the main reason to visit El Nido. Unlike other popular spots, El Nido is uncrowded and kayaking is a great way to explore coves and islets. Bacuit Bay’s limestone islands also loom cross the sea from El Nido where its possible to either dive, snorkel or hike.
If you love to party, El Nido is the perfect getaway for you. Every month, El Nido organises a Full Moon Party. A Full Moon Party is more than just drinking, and dancing all night long; it’s a gathering of free-spirited people dressed in bright colours and glowing florescent face paint. Did I mention that there will be a huge bonfire and fire spinners too? With live music and DJs who know how to keep a party going, you will thoroughly enjoy yourself.
The capital of Palawan, Puerto Princesa’s claim to fame goes way beyond its swanky beach resorts and dolphin-watching cruises. The UNESCO-listed Underground River wows visitors with its low-hanging stalagmites and stalactites, and a cave that—due to its sheer size and rock formations resembling religious figures—is likened to a cathedral.
The islands of San Vicente are beautiful, but what sets them apart from others is the lack of crowds. With miles of long, unbroken beach San Vicente is like a paradise with its untainted atmosphere.
Here, you can also swim amidst turtles and gain a new appreciation for marine life. If you are lucky enough and allowed, you can go to Turtle Island, where you can gaze endangered turtles such as Hawksbill turtles and Green turtles.
Containing one of the clearest lakes in all of Asia, Coron is a siht to behold. Kayangan Lake and the nearby viewpoint are one of the most photographed places in all of Philippines. You can also opt for a hike to Mt. Tapyas if you are looking for adventure that doesn’t involve the boat. From the top, you can immerse yourself in the amazing scenery and be rewarded with views of both Coron Island and Coron Town.
You should also not miss wreck diving in Coron as it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. In the present day, the six shipwrecks offer a tempting target for divers of all levels of experience. Beginners can glide past the ships' exteriors, admiring the coral-encrusted cranes, portholes and armaments. Expert wreck divers can enter the ships and discover a dark, lost world of abandoned engine rooms, scattered personal effects and bomb holes opening to the deep.
