It’s hard to believe the Philippines are an under-appreciated tropical travel destination, especially with their extraordinary hiking, diving, beaches and of course — islands that are THIS beautiful.
And while we’d like to visit every single island in the Philippines, there’s one island in particular we’re zeroing in on — Palawan, a hidden piece of paradise that was recently named The Best Island In The World in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards.
This isn’t the first time Palawan has ranked top in the world, and it’s easy to see why. There, beautiful blue water mixes with emerald green, jungle-filled mountains that appear to rise up from the ocean, and small fishing villages dot the island. Together with its neighboring islands, it creates the Palawan province, aka paradise.
