Palawan's San Vicente: The Longest White Beach In The Philippines

Palawan, though popular among local and foreign travelers, remains to be an unspoiled Philippine destination. 


Crystal clear and carefree ????

The longest white beach in the Philippines in San Vicente has practically no commercial development (yet), and if you're lucky enough, you can literally be the only human on a long stretch of virgin sand and crystal clear water.


Its 14-km long shoreline is actually three times longer than Boracay's white beach. Just imagine having Palawan's piece of paradise all to yourself! 

How to get there:
It takes 3-4 hours land travel time from Puerto Princesa City/ 2-3 hours from El Nido; From Puerto Princesa Airport, ride a tricycle to San Jose Terminal and take the 3-4 hour bus ride to San Vicente. From the town proper, take a motorcycle tour of the beaches for P350. You might also want to extend the trip to Irawan Beach, which raises the fee to P500 per ride. The motorcycle can accommodate up to 2 passengers, cheaper if you’re with a companion.


Attractions: Daplac Cove, Capari Cove Coral Reefs, Mangrove Forest, Wilson Head, Double Island, Naparay Coral Reefs, Little Baguio Waterfalls

Accommodations: Capari Resort, Peace and Love Resort, Ditchay Bed and Breakfast, Ursula Long Beach Travellers Inn, John Eric Lodging, Picardal Lodge, Bahay ni Kuya, Station 5, M&D Resort, Nayarani Vilas


I owned this beach when I visited it, long may it stay that way. Visit it while it still uncrowded ????
