Palawan is one of the islands that make up the area known as the Visayans which is located in the middle part of the Philippines. Palawan is a big narrow island with lots of coastline to discover and enjoy and it is the biggest island in the western part of the Visayans. Still in 2016 much like Samar, Palawan very pristine and beautiful with fewer visitors than say Cebu or Luzon. There are plenty of places to go diving and exploring in general and I highly recommend a visit to this island especially if you want to really enjoy the peace and quiet of the Philippines. Like most all islands there are many caves, waterfalls, diving locations and beautiful white sand beaches to spend a few hours or a few days enjoying.
