Palawan, Philippines

Palawan is an island in the western part of the Philippines. Together with the surrounding smaller islands and archipelagos, it forms the Philippine province of Palawan in the MIMAROPA region. The largest city and capital is Puerto Princesa.
The island of Palawan is located in the west of the Philippines and belongs to the province of Mimaropa. The main island extends over a length of about 450 kilometers and is about 40 kilometers wide.

The karst formations, which give the island its own character, create incredible atmospheres. If you explore the island, you can see Mount Mantalinganhan, which is a little over 2000 meters high, from a long way off.

As you can see, you can expect not only magical beaches with emerald green water, but also unique and wild jungle landscapes.
