Palawan Island, located in the Philipines, has been voted the best island in the world in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards 2020, scoring 94.83/100 points in an online public vote. Palawan is no stranger at being at the top of this list; it has taken the crown 3 times before in 2013, 2016, and 2017, and also made Condé Nast 2020 Readers Choice best islands in Asia list.
There’s Nothing Else Quite Like It.
Palawan is the largest island of the province of Palawan in the Philippines and the fifth-largest island of the country. It features a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the New7Wonders of the World, The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park.
Its dramatic views at sea level are breathtaking, with cristal clear turquoise waters and mountains rising from the ocean amidst palm edged white sandy beaches. Underwater also offers an unforgettable experience, with world-class scuba diving and even WW2 shipwrecks to explore, there’s nothing else quite like it.
“It’s no wonder Palawan ranked as the most beautiful island in the world this year, as the clear aquamarine water, limestone cliffs, and lagoons of the island province of the Philippines are only the most basic highlights,” says contributing editor Cynthia Drescher for Condé Nast Traveler, when it was voted number 2 in 2016 Readers Choice Awards.
The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts team are thrilled with the recent win for the island, as The Pavilions El Nido, Palawan Island resort opens its doors in 2022.
