Palawan Island Philippines lies between the South China Sea and the Sulu Sea. Its 2,000-km (1,243-mi) coastline is renowned for having one of the most beautiful seascapes in the world, with thousands of square kilo metres of protected coral reefs. Palawan Island Philippines has a stunning array of flora, fauna, ecology, biology and marine life, including highly endangered dugongs.
The island’s variety of exotic terrain includes rainforests, lush green hills and plains by pristine beaches. It is home to many species of African and endangered Palawan animals including Palawan monkeys and parrots, bear cats and peacocks, as well as mongoose, scaly anteaters, porcupine and mouse deer, which are protected in the Calauit Game Reserve and Wildlife Sanctuary.
Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with ancient cave and river networks, is an amazing place. It is thought to be the longest navigable subterranean river and its cavern contains an incredible array stalactites and stalagmites in all shapes and sizes.
Considered by many to be the Philippine’s ‘last frontier’, the province is also home to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park. The Coron Reefs, in Coron Bay, Busuanga, consist of seven enchanting lakes surrounded by impressive craggy limestone cliffs.
Palawan Island Philippines is rated as one of the top dive sites in the world and divers come from around the world to see the 12 World War II Japanese shipwrecks here ranging in depth from surface level down to 40 m (131 ft).
