A magnificent forest carpeted, exotic island. A gift for the adventurous soul to explore. A paradise for the nature lovers. A cinematographic beauty of the underwater world for the hungry divers. Its unique and diverse flora and fauna is due to the location between Borneo and Mindanao, and its pristine emerald waters to its remoteness. Palawan is blessed with splendid beaches, majestic unexplored mountains, scenic limestone rocks popping vertically out of the sea, stunning sunsets and friendly people.
In fact everything is almost perfect including the savoury food that is cheap and nutritious.
Being declared as World Heritage it has miraculously escaped from total destruction. Its precious colourful reefs have come back to life and millions of exotic fish have found their natural habitat after a turn to eco-tourism and mild development, which has given hope for a safe future.
In case you are planning a trip to Philippines don't forget to include Palawan in your list. If you have only a few days for it just divide them between Sabang ( or Port Barton) and El Nido. For the more fortunate there are many heavenly spots to spend unforgettable moments. Don't delay because I am sure its destiny is the usual unhappy deterioration of "touristic" over exploitation. It is always the same painful feeling I get when I go back to a dreamy place I had discovered several years before. Little paradises turned to touristy monsters...
Anyway I hope people will respect and treasure this wonderful corner of Earth...
Amazing diving, mountaineering, basking in the sun on quiet beaches, being pampered in efficient resorts on picture perfect small islands, savouring delicious fresh fish are some of the options offered on the island.
Highlights are the Subterranean River, The area of Puerto Princesa, Sabang, Port Barton, Honda beach, and definitely El Nido.
All small islands you can visit will leave you with a happy smile..and you have a choice of more than 1700!
All people are helpful and open hearted!
