Welcome to Mindanao and Palawan!
With over 7,000 islands in the Philippines, it’s never too hard to get a glimpse of the tropical sea. Hidden surf spots, uninhabited islands, reefs and wreck diving all make up a diverse water world.
On land there’s an equal variety: volcanic peaks, lush mountain rice terraces and tropical jungle.
While development and tourism are changing the landscape, Palawan, Mindanao and the Sulu Islands remain some of the least developed areas of the country, where land and water wildlife, through under threat, are being preserved. Mindanao and Palawan composes various ethno-linguistic tribes that will surely ignite the interest of visitors. Cultural diversity is being celebrated and festivals may be experienced throughout the year.
Exploring these regions will reward visitors who are flexible, adventurous and informed. Connections between islands are made by sea and air. As with travel anywhere, be sensible and prepared and you’ll enjoy a gleaming, sun-drenched, friendly place.
