Philippines - Getting to know Palawan & El Nido
Palawan is known as the Philippines’ ‘last ecological frontier’. This 650km sliver of an island lies at the heart of an archipelago of almost 2000 more islands that trail off leisurely towards Malay Borneo in the south west. Palawan is unspoilt, sparsely populated and studded with perfect white-sand beaches, but it’s much more than this. There are rugged mountains, teeming jungle, towering limestone karst cliffs, ultramarine lagoons and pristine coral reefs to explore too.
