Coron Island, a part of the Calamianes group of islands in Philippine frontier of Northern Palawan, boasts a staggering array of magnificent seascapes, jaw-dropping scenery and world-class wreck diving – virtually a platter of adventure for the intrepid.
We had a quick lunch on this beautiful island on El Nido.
One of Asia's cleanest lakes can be found in Coron.
Largely unspoilt, Palawan is considered by many as one of the final frontiers in Philippine tourism.
With one of the longest coastlines in the world, it's so easy to have a beach all to yourself.
On a beach on Sabang in Puerto Princesa, near the Underground River.
Due to the sizeable number of Vietnamese boat people/refugees that went through Palawan, they left an indelible imprint on the local culture. Unlike other refugee places in the region, the Vietnamese in Puerto Princesa were even allotted housing areas. Some married locals while the majority were processed for relocation to another country.
You can buy these mini-baseball bats (and full sized nunchucks) at Iwahig Penal Colony, in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. Seriously.
A beautiful sandbar in Bacuit Bay.
Like jewels strewn across the ocean, these are some of the islands you will see on your flight to Palawan.
We stayed at El Nido Resorts: Miniloc Island. Just off the beach are thousands of fish. You don't even have to dive to see such teeming marine life!
