The province of Palawan has consistently reaped praises and accolades such as best island in the world exotic paradise, and best island destination. With its gorgeous seascapes and abundant aquatic and terrestrial wildlife, it’s not hard to see why.   Located in the the MIMAROPA region, the province is the largest in the country in terms of total area of jurisdiction. It is also the least populated region, which certainly adds to its beguiling charm. Palawan is usually accessed via Puerto Princesa, its capital, which is governed independently from the province as an urbanized city.   Locals describe Palawan as “the last frontier” because it's located on the southern tip of the Philippines, just north of Malaysia. The island’s irregular coastline is around 2,000 kilometers long, and is lined with white sandy beaches and smaller bays. Virgin forests can also be found on its long stretch of mountain ranges. Further cementing its status as best island in the world, Palawan is also home to there UNESCO World Heritage Sites--the Puerto-Princesa Subterranean River National Park, Tubbataha Reef Marine Park, and Ursula Island.
