Palawan Island, Philippines

The island of Palawan is a long stretch of thickly forested landscape bordered by coves, beaches, lagoons as well as limestone cliffs; stretching from the southwest of Luzon towards Malaysia. The island is staggeringly beautiful, with irresistibly clear water, lush jungle; and a coastline that is a maze of rocky islets as well as mysterious coves.

Puerto Princesa, which is central, is the main gateway to the island and from the city most travellers head north; where one can find the most picturesque scenery. The rugged south of the island is less explored and accommodation also tends to be very rustic. The island’s Tubbataha Reef is extremely ecologically important to the Philippines as a food source and nursery for marine life, and the area is archaeologically important too. Caveman remains have been discovered on the island dating back something like 22,000 years.

The main attraction on the island, however, is the underground river, St Paul’s Subterranean Cave near Sabang, about two hours by road from Puerto Princesa. The cave extends more than five miles (8km) and also contains the world’s longest underground river. Palawan is still ‘off the beaten track’, but one can only reach it by a flight from Manila. For adventure as well as relaxation Palawan is a wonderful choice of destination.

With a stay at Sheridan Beach Resort & Spa in Puerto Princesa, you’ll be on the beach and minutes from Sabang Boat Terminal, and close to Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park.  Nestled between towering mountain ranges and the clear blue waters of the West Philippines Sea lies the premier property of Sheridan Beach Resort & Spa, the first green resort in the Philippines known to champion environmental sustainability in Sabang Beach, Puerto Princesa, one of the country’s most protected areas.

Experience a world of wonderment – of jungle trails as well as mangrove forests, where the sun, sand, sea meet and an unforgettable holiday of adventure and relaxation awaits.
