Palawan Island is the Philippines’ hidden piece of paradise.


SEE The island is accessible by boat or plane. Coming by air, it gives you your first look at just how beautiful Palawan is. From above, Palawan’s stunning blue and emerald waters will hypnotise, as will the forest-covered mountains that seem to rise from the ocean. By boat, the small fishing villages dotting the island and limestone caves will greet you upon arrival.

DO Seasonal turtle watching, caving, kayaking, bird watching, snorkelling, diving – these are some of the things you must absolutely do to take advantage of Palawan’s archipelago. It is also home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the underground Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, a two-hour drive from the capital.

SHOP Guests can’t get enough of local handmade jewellery, shell craft, wood carvings and woven products from Binuatan weavers. There are also great local markets to explore local fruits and food. If you really need the mall, there are two on the main island of Palawan.

STAY Pangulasian Island Resort fronts a 750-metre white powder beach overlooking the bay, with 42 villas all with a private balcony that overlooks the beach or garden. The resort also has a secluded cove perfect for kayaking, and a marine sanctuary right at its doorstep. Snorkel, dive then go island hopping which the resort can arrange for guests.
