Palawan named world's best island by Travel + Leisure Magazine

While the tourism industry has been hard hit by coronavirus restrictions, Palawan, the island dubbed as 'Philippines' last frontier has "reclaimed its rightful place in the World's Best Awards', according to the Travel + Leisure magazine wrote by Sara Clemence.

This year’s World’s Best Awards survey closed on March 2, just before widespread stay-at-home orders were implemented as a result of COVID-19. Hence, results reflect the experiences of Travel + Leisure readers before the pandemic.

Travel + Leisure writer Sara Clemence said, referring to four-time World’s Best Island Palawan, “though it’s difficult to reach from many parts of the world, once travelers get there they can dive in World War II wrecks, explore old-growth rain forests, and paddle one of the world’s longest subterranean rivers at Puerto Princesa”.

"The landscape and scenery are just gorgeous. It offers the most beautiful beaches, resorts, and scenery anywhere,” the travel magazine quoted a fan describing Palawan.

Palawan earned a very high score of 94.83, way above the second-ranked island which got 90.55.

Home to the world-renowned Puerto Princesa Underground River, and pristine beaches that boast of powdery white sands, Palawan, and its beaches and resorts have gained global recognition, bagging citations from prestigious publications such as CNN Travel, Condé Nast Traveler (CNT), TripAdvisor, and travel awards programs including the World Travel Awards and World Luxury Hotel Awards, among others.

Another popular destination in the Philippines, Boracay, made it to No. 14 in T+L’s World Best Island list and fifth in Asia this year.
