Palawan named World’s Best Island for the second time

Once again, the Philippines’s very own Palawan has been named as the “Best Island in the World” by international magazine Travel & Leisure.

The island first received the top destination rank in 2013 and now it is back on the list. “It’s a little surprise that the island is back at top” wrote Travel & Leisure Magazine on its website. “Visitors are greeted with mountains rising out of impossibly turquoise waters, where shipwrecks and reefs make for prime scuba and snorkeling”, they added.


With a score of 93.71, Palawan was described by one of the voters as “Every beach lover’s dream destination.”


Palawan is also home to a five mile-long Underground River and its limestone caverns, with its abundant coral reefs and marine life, tourist can enjoy the magical paradise


Aside from Palawan, Travel and Leisure also named two other Philippine islands — Boracay and Cebu — in the list. The white sands of Boracay placed second, while Cebu ranked sixth.


“We are exceedingly glad to receive the honor, on behalf of the Filipino people, of having three Philippines islands dominate the World’s Best Islands selection for 2016 by the Travel + Leisure Magazine.

The recognition is most welcome news as it affirms the well – deserved standing of Philippines’ islands as world-class travel destinations.


It is yet another attestation of the unforgettable experience of visiting the Philippines, as Travel & Leisure Magazine reader voucher for upon discovering the island’s exhilarating natural wonder on being captivated by genuine hospitality of the local people.


We love to have the rest of the world come visit the Philippines islands, and enjoy our diverse cultural festivities and authentic Filipino cuisine,
