Palawan is an archipelago of 1,780 islands on the western part of the Philippines. It has the most concentration of islands but is the most sparsely populated region in the country. Because of its scenic landscapes and high bio-diversity, Palawan is known as “The Last Ecological Frontier of the Philippines”.
The northern part of Palawan province is blessed with crystal-clear waters, pristine beaches, and a wealth of flora and fauna. It is here that El Nido and Taytay, home of the lovely El Nido Resorts, are located. Spectacular ancient limestone cliffs tower over marine sanctuaries teeming with innumerable species of tropical fish and coral, as well as five species of endangered sea turtles. Lush forests abound with more than 100 species of birds. It is a truly exotic destination.
HOW TO GET THERE
The province is accessible through the capital city of Puerto Princesa or through direct charter flights to the northern islands of El Nido, Apulit, Club Paradise and Amanpulo. Domestic flights from Manila are 60 minutes to the capital, Puerto Princesa; 75 minutes to El Nido and 60 minutes to Busuanga. Island destinations normally are accessible through short boat rides from the airport.
