A LITTLE ABOUT PALAWAN
As of 2016, the main island of Palawan was rated the "Most Beautiful Island in the World" as voted by respective readers of rival travel publications Conde Nast Traveller and Travel + Leisure. It is the second year running that Palawan has won the Conde Nast Traveller award, as well as the second time in four years that it has occupied Travel + Leisure's top spot (2013). El Nido, located at the northern tip of the island, is also currently rated the "Most Beautiful Beach in the World" by Conde Nast Traveller readers. In 2007, National Geographic Traveler magazine rated Palawan the best island destination in East and Southeast Asia region, having:
... incredibly beautiful natural seascapes and landscapes. One of the most biodiverse (terrestrial and marine) islands in the Philippines. The island has had a Biosphere Reserve status since early 1990s, showing local interest for conservation and sustainable development."
Palawan has always had an environmental streak. It was one of the first provinces to crack down on litter, noise pollution, and single-use plastics. A lot is at stake, as the province's booming tourism industry relies on the successful preservation of its pristine ecology and natural beauty. Against this backdrop, several award winning resorts are leading the way toward a more sustainable future, blending native design and low carbon elements like solar panels, composting, and edible gardens to create living spaces that will last.
