Palawan island in the Philippines has again been named among the world’s best – this time as one of the “13 Places Where You Can See the Bluest Waters.”
Earlier in July, Palawan joined the list of the Top 15 Best Islands in the World in the annual World’s Best Awards (WBA) of Travel + Leisure Magazine.
The top New York-based magazine also chose Palawan for the 2018 listing of the bluest waters in the world.
The July 2019 edition of the Travel+Leisure list recommended Palawan and 12 other islands for those who need “to re-center and refresh your mind and body staring off into a tranquil blue sea.”
Travel writer Melissa Locker listed Palawan among “lakes, seas, beaches, and bays (which) have vistas that range from brilliant navy blues to the lightest, clearest turquoises imaginable. Needless to say, they are the perfect places to re-connect with nature, family, and yourself.”
The Travel+Leisure feature described Palawan: “The sparsely-populated archipelago is made up of jungle-filled islands surrounded by stunning teal waters teeming with fish and coral reefs and an incredible array of lagoons, coves, and secret beaches.
Travel+Leisure recommends travelers to “Explore the waters of El Nido, where tropical fish swarm around the coral reefs, go diving in the azure ocean off of Linapacan Island, or bravely swim through the world’s longest underground navigable river.”
