At this paradise island, you will find diverse and rare species of flora and fauna. There is the scaly anteater, giant turtles, Palawan peacock pheasant, Palawan bear cat, mouse deer, and the Tabon bird. Beyond these lovely wildlife, Palawan’s beautiful beaches, islands, reefs, resorts, forests, and underground rivers are what really lure visitors to it.
Beneath the waters of Palawan lies a stunning display of underwater life – an ideal destination for snorkelers and scuba divers. If you want to go diving, you will find one of the best diving spots in the world here-the Tubbataha Reef. Some of the spots in the northern islands are delightfully unspoiled. Full or half-day cruises, snorkeling, island explorations, and accommodations are available in the neighboring islands.
