Palawan is known for housing one of the seven wonders of the world (The Underwater River), for having some of the best diving spots across the globe, and for having the most serene lagoons in the country.
In case you’ve already visited El Nido, Puerto Princesa, and Coron, and you thought you’re done with Palawan, I’m here to tell you otherwise. San Vicente, a town located about four hours away from Puerto Princesa, is another hidden gem in this province. If you’re a lover of white sand and the sun, you should definitely explore this place. For four days, the average all-in amount you’ll spend with this itinerary is between P11,000 and 15,000, depending on your food choices.
Here’s my four-day itinerary when I visited San Vicente, Palawan last July 2017 with my family and friends.
Airline: Philippine Airlines
Lodging: Turubien Resort
Dinner at Ka Inato
Four-hour travel time from Puerto Princesa to San Vicente
Arrival at Turubien Resort, Long Beach
Long Beach, the 14-kilometer shoreline in San Vicente, is probably the next big thing in Palawan. It’s actually three times longer than the shoreline in Boracay; hence the name Long Beach. I guess it could be one of the most visited beaches in Palawan a few years from now — or it could become the next Boracay although if you would ask me, I want it to remain the same. Peaceful. Relaxing. Flawless.
Day 2 (Island Hopping)
Inaladelan/German Island (Turtle watching + Lunch)
Twin Reef (Snorkeling venue)
Dinner at Long Beach
Day 3 (Island Hopping 2)
Tandan Beach (highly Instagrammable virgin beach)
Palawan Camping (perfect for team building, family camping, honeymooners)
Nao Nao Island
Bigaho Falls (It’s a gem!!!! The photos can’t justify its beauty)
The most beautiful secrets of San Vicente were revealed on our second island hopping. My favorite parts of day 3 were (1) being able to enjoy the beauty of Tandan Beach all to ourselves, (2) being able to explore Palawan Camping for free, and being able to privately swim at the breathtaking Bigaho Falls. I definitely want to repeat this tour when I come back to San Vicente.
Day 4 (Side trip: Puerto Princesa)
Baker’s Hill (Home of the best hopia)
To kill time while waiting for our flight, we dropped by the Crocodile Farm, Bakers’ Hill and Balinsasayaw in Puerto Princesa.
