Palawan named as world’s best island again

For the second time around, the Philippines’ very own Palawan has been named once again as the Best Island in the World by international magazine Travel and Leisure. The island first received the top destination spot in 2013, and now it’s back on the list. With a score of 93.71, Palawan was described by one of the voters as “every beach lover’s dream destination.”

“Visitors are greeted with mountains rising out of impossibly turquoise waters, where shipwrecks and reefs make for prime scuba and snorkeling,” the travel magazine wrote on its website.

Palawan is also home to a five mile-long underground river and its limestone caverns, with its abundant coral reefs and marine life, tourist can enjoy the magical paradise.

Aside from Palawan, Travel and Leisure also named two other Philippine islands — Boracay and Cebu — in the list.
The white sands of Boracay placed second, while Cebu ranked sixth.
Other islands included in the lists are Ischia, Italy (Rank 3); Waiheke Island ,New Zeland (Rank 4); Santorini, Greece (Rank 5); Maui, Hawaii (Rank 7); Hilton Head, South Carolina (Rank 8); Kauai, Hawaii (Rank 9) and Bali, Indonesia (Rank 10). (Marjorie Tee Sia) Mb Online
