Destination of the Month
Philippines – Palawan
A long, thin archipelago province located between the South China and Sulu Seas, Palawan Island provides a gorgeous holiday escape for divers and non-divers alike.
A chain on mountains, reaching 2086m at its highest point, stretches across the island, blanketed in a lush virgin rainforest which spills down the slopes to meet the 2000km of bright white sandy beaches and rocky coves that line the coastline.
The two most popular areas frequented by tourists are El Nido, located on the northern-most tip of the island, and Puerto Princesa, sitting on the central coast. Puerto Princesa is the capital of Palawan, famed for being the cleanest, most charming city in the Philippines, and the port used for all liveaboard cruises sailing the surrounding seas.
Palawan is a melting pot of culture, with over 87 different races and cultural groups calling this island home. The majority of the populace still consists of the native Palaweños, with the remainder made up of minority groups who have migrated from other areas of the Philippines. This mixing of cultures gives Palawan the vibrancy and welcoming atmosphere that it is so well-known for today.
