While Palawan is not one of the big 3 Island Chains that usually break up the Philippines in terms of structure (Palawan is usually lumped into Luzon when breaking the Philippines into the three), we have deemed it worthy of it’s own fourth listing since El Nido and Coron happen to be our two favorite places in the Philippines.
El Nido is literally like heaven on earth. Lagoons galore and multi million year rock formations, beautiful blue green waters and pristine beaches make El Nido an international favorite for tourists.
And if you think it’s not fair that Palawan gets blessed with such an out of this world locale, well it gets worse. Coron is right there with El Nido in terms of beauty.
