Puerto Princesa, the main city of the Palawan province, is best known for its natural beauty. The subterranean river is especially impressive, though the fantastic white-sand beaches are probably the bigger draw. Shaded by nodding palms and swept by gentle waves, they create quite the idyllic destination.

As a city, Puerto Princesa has a lot more to offer than most major destinations in Palawan. Within the Insta-worthy landscape, you’ll find a pretty good dining scene, a few places to party in the evenings, together with a modest selection of cultural attractions to check out.
