Located in the West Philippine Sea, Palawan is home to the country's most spectacular seascapes and island views.
If you have the unfortunate dilemma of choosing only one place to visit in the Philippines, Palawan should be on the top of your list. You came to the country to see spectacular beaches and islands. You are going to experience the best in Palawan!
Palawan is the biggest province of the Philippines — an archipelago composed of roughly 1,780 islands and islets. Puerto Princesa, the capital city is located in the middle of Palawan Island, the main island. This eco-friendly city is home to the Puerto Princesa Underground River, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Puerto Princesa Airport is the province's busiest airport and flight hub.
Found at the northern tip of Palawan Island, El Nido beckons with its jaw-dropping karst mountains and hidden lagoons. Coron, located farther up north, offers stunning underwater views as well as enchanting lagoons. Go off the beaten path to Balabac, the southernmost islands of Palawan, to see one of the Philippines most beautiful white sand beaches and clearest waters.
