San Vicente

Palawan is one huge island, blessed with beautiful beaches with white sand; teeming with vibrant and colorful reefs, with thousands of species of marine life. Aside from El Nido, Coron, and Puerto Princesa, there are equally beautiful towns to visit in the province, like San Vicente.

The town is home to the longest stretch of white sand in the entire Philippines; three times longer than Boracay’s to be exact! With 14 kilometers of powdery sand, Long Beach has got to be one of the most beautiful beaches to visit in the country. The otherwise continuous stretch is interrupted by cliffs overlooking the ocean, which is another breathtaking sight. It sounds so peaceful there, doesn’t it?

Walk on the soft powdery sand as the echoes of the crashing waves accompany you. The sunset and sunrise on this spot is gorgeous, as well.

If you’re looking for other quiet spots in this small municipality, Imuran Bay is open to guests. Blessed with interesting rock formations, this place is not just ideal for swimming, it’s available for cliff diving too, despite the fact that these formations aren’t really cliffs. They are just huge boulder-like formations, ideal to jump from. Two other beaches in town have white sand and crystal clear waters, as well. These are Alimanguan Beach and Bokbok Beach.

Their most popular destination is the Secret Paradise Resort & Turtle Sanctuary. It’s a great place for you to just chill and witness what this town has to offer. It is also the only turtle sanctuary endorsed by WWF-Philippines and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). This 77-hectare natural reserve has four coconut lined-private beaches, waterfalls, three private trails for some hiking, and a 28-hectare marine sanctuary. Naturally dotted with coral reefs home to thousands of fishes, the marine sanctuary is perfect for some scuba diving and snorkeling. Or you can just get a pair of goggles and leisurely swim with the fishes and turtles.
