Highlights of Palawan

The island province of Palawan is often referred to as the ‘last frontier’ because it is one of the few remaining islands in the Philippines that has been largely untouched by logging and still has a substantial amount of primary rainforest. The island is now protected and has become a nature sanctuary offering, as well as the rainforest, outstanding dive sites, majestic mountains, primeval caves, pristine beaches and an archipelago within the larger archipelago that makes up the Philippines. Palawan is surrounded by a coral shelf that abounds with varied and colourful marine life. The island boasts exotic flora and fauna, like the mouse-deer and the scaly anteater, that are found nowhere else and the waters of Palawan are among the best in the world for diving and fishing.
