The capital city of Palawan Island in the western Philippines is a fascinating landscape of caves, forests, and coastline. Often acclaimed as the cleanest and greenest city in the Philippines, it offers a wealth of attractions such as turquoise water, white-sand beaches, underground rivers, and wildlife reserves. Without a doubt, it’s a nature lover’s paradise. Dive sites are dotted around Puerto Princesa Bay, home to long-nosed dolphins, turtles and rays. Adventurous travelers can jet-ski, kayak, rent a scooter or a bike. The locals are friendly, and the vibe is peaceful. Also, close to the port is the picturesque 19th-century Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral.
Please Note: While we don't currently sail to Puerto Princesa, you can still discover the beauty of the country on one of our Philippines cruises. Browse our luxury cruises to the Philippines below.
