The Last Frontier

PALAWAN is an exquisite destination in the southwest part of the Philippine archipelago. It is a long, narrow island pointing to Borneo. It is known as the "Last Frontier" and is now being promoted as an ecotourism destination, attracting a steady stream of visitors. It is, in fact, one of the most visited tourist spots in the Philippines.

There are daily flights to Puerto Princesa - Palawan’s capital - from Manila, Cebu and Iloilo (less than 1hr).

Here, you will find diverse and rare species of flora and fauna. There is the fish-eating Palawan Eagle, the Scaly Anteater, Giant Turtles, Palawan Peacock Pheasant, Palawan Bear Cat, Mouse Deer, and the Tabon Bird. Palawan's famous underground river, beautiful beaches, islands, coral reefs in crystal clear water, resorts and forests are what really attracts visitors.


Beneath the waters of Palawan exists a stunning display of underwater life - an ideal destination for snorkelers and scuba divers. If you like diving, you will find many diving opportunities. One of the best diving spots in the world - the Tubbataha Reef can be reached by tours from Puerto Princesa. All places in Palawan are delightfully unspoiled from mass-tourism.


The City of Puerto Princesa represents a very attractive and refreshing counterbalance to the hustle and bustle of overcrowded cities.
