The tropical idyll that is Palawan is beyond compare. The archipelagic province is a postcard-like destination with the finest white sand and water so blue, it is almost transparent. The energy on the island can be described as bohemian meets modern and it exactly the kind of place you can start your visit to the Philippines from. The nature in the area is stunning - from fascinating limestone rock formations to coral reefs and tranquil beaches, Palawan is a breathtaking gem.
Stretching 650km all the way to Borneo, the island is known for the aquatic diversity and the scope of the water that no other Southeast Asian country can compete with. The El Nido and Coron base camps get packed from May all the way to the end of the summer season so we recommend visiting during April when the area is quieter and it is easier to make the most of your stay. The unmatched scenery has won the province a beloved reputation and so it became a popular tourist destination. However with so many tiny beach spots to choose from, nomads and first-time visitors can definitely feel like hey have their own little piece of this tropical paradise for the day.
