Palawan is largest and most preserved island group in the Philippines. It consists of 1700 islands. The majestic rainforest, caves, coral reefs, mangroves, beaches and beautiful clear blue waters are just a sample of the wonderful things you can see there. There’s over 10,000 square kilometers of coral reefs that surround the islands. Below is a very small sample of some of the things you can see in Palawan.

Tubbataha Reef

Some must see attractions are Puerto Princess Subterranean River National Park, a.k.a.Sabang’s St. Paul Subterranean National Park. It was formed naturally over millions of years; the exact length of the caves and river network is still unknown today. The Stalactites and stalagmites and multi colored stones in the caverns are a wonder to see. If you’re into diving there’s the Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park. Tubbataha Reef consist of two atolls. The northern most serves as a sanctuary for birds and sea turtles. The Capital of Palawan, Puerto Princes offers a night life with several clubs and bars. If it’s nature and diving you are seeking, then Palawan would be certainly tough to beat.

A few other popular places to see are, Tigman Beach. A great beach for swimming. There are two resorts there, Camille del Sol and Princessa Holiday.

Estrella Falls

Fresh cool waters cascading rapidly from Victoria Peak to twin falls at the mountain’s edge, Estrella Falls is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. The crystal clear waters flow into three natural pools of varying depths. One has a depth that is best suited for good swimmers; another is somewhat shallower and is safer for those who do not swim well and there is third pool that is shallow and ideal for children. The Municipal Government of Narra, has provided facilities in the forms of cottages, huts, shades, restrooms and provisions for grilling.

Rasa Island

Endangered Philippine Cockatoo

It’s home to the endangered Philippine cockatoo, locally known as katala or kalabukay. It’s also home to some 68 other kinds of birds including the Blue-Headed Racket Tail, the Black-Naped Oriole and the White Vintage Shama.

Tabon Caves Complex is a network of some 200 caves of which only 29 have been fully explored. The site was declared a Museum Reservation Site in 1972 by Presidential Proclamation No. 996. It’s believed to be the first pace humans settled in the Philiipines. It can be reached by boat from the Quezon wharf in about 30 minutes.
