We all love tropical island getaways. At least I think everyone does. I probably just haven't heard someone say "I hate the beach". Sometimes, there are beaches that are still extremely beautiful but can get pretty crowded and busy.
Not on Palawan Island in the Philippines.
This island is off the beaten path, quiet, authentic and relaxing. It is less commercialized than Phuket and Kutas. There's a lush rainforest that is surrounded by miles of white sand beaches with the clearest blue water. Also, locations like Tumarbong have some of the most tranquil and unspoiled beaches around the globe or El Nido which has breathtaking cliffs over turquoise waters. It is a prime spot for scuba diving with its colorful coral garden and hundreds of exotic fish species, hiking and exploring the five-mile underground river.
If you're looking for a vacation on a tropical beach that will reconnect you with nature and not crowds of vacationers, you need to check out Palawan Island.
