Summer breeze is starting to embrace the tropical islands of the Philippines, and it is enticing us to travel; after being stuck at home for several months in 2 years, we are co-existing with the COVID-19. Indeed, most of us would love to get lost in nature to breathe or contemplate succeeding in the long tiring months of routinely working and staying at home.
We are lucky to have several natural attractions in the country, existing to relax us whenever we need days of respite, especially this summer. One of the famous regions in the Philippines with hidden gems is Palawan. A couple of times, it was among the nominated wonders of the World and ranked 19th in the Top 25 Islands in the World listed by Travel + Leisure magazine’s World’s Best Awards on September 8, 2021. Below are the top 3 choices of tourists as the best summer destinations in Palawan —Coron, El Nido and Puerto Princesa.
One of the best places to unwind from the busy and fast-paced city life is the island of Coron. With many foreign and local tourists admiring its unique and timeless beauty, it is a perfect go-to vacation spot this summertime! The island does not come short of inland and water destinations that continuously capture the heart and eyesight of every traveler.
Several fine white-sand beaches remain unexploited, thus, proudly showcasing their natural beauties, an ideal place for beach bums. Of course, we should not miss capturing the enjoyable travel moments in our lives, and the sceneries on the island are a perfect backdrop for your photos. The famous beaches that attract tourists: are Malcapuya Island, Banul beach, Coron youth club beach, smith point beach, among others.
Divers love the island of Coron for its marine activities and sanctuaries. Aside from the beaches, it has also become the home of a dozen sunken ships, which offer shipwreck diving activity to many divers. We encourage everyone to immerse undersea and witness the magical aquatic biodiversity of the island. We have Discover Scuba Diving that will bring you closer to your dream of exploring the undersea.
Meanwhile, if you want to have a hike or walk in the jungle, Calauit Safari Park is ready to amaze you with its wildlife sanctuary. In an estimate, the park is about 9,100 acres game reserve, sheltering African wild animals, such as zebras, gazelles, and giraffes.
