Puerto Princesa City
On the island province of Palawan and within easy reach of Manila sits this beautiful coastal city. A popular vacation destination among locals and international tourists alike, Puerto Princesa is the capital of the Palawan province, and renowned for being very well-maintained. It’s popular among beach vacation-goers and rugged outdoors enthusiasts, as the city is home to many islands and nature reserves.
The city is served by Puerto Princesa Airport, which is right in the middle of the city and within easy access of many hotels in the area. Upon arriving in the city, the rest of the islands can be reached through island hopping tours.
Honda Bay is one of the more popular destinations for island-hopping as it’s a convenient jumping-off point for a full day of such an activity. There are many hotels in Honda Bay, and well-established tour groups that have operated for a long time. Many of the tour groups offer package deals based on the number of islands one plans to explore, and most of the hotels nearby can assist with planning these tours.
Puerto Princesa is very popular among local and international vacationers because of all the beaches and islands around it. Waterfront activities are often a favorite among vacationers, and Sabang beach is one of the most popular beaches not only because of the promise of fun in the sun, but because it provides access to the Underground River. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is an extremely popular attraction, offering guided boat tours of the caves around the subterranean river. It’s a unique and interesting activity that should not be missed while in Puerto Princesa.
