Puerto Princesa, Palawan has been the face of the last ecological frontier in the Philippines. Lying along the midsection of the long island of Palawan province, the capital city of Palawan is considered to be a first class city among the cities of the Philippines.
One of Puerto Princesa’s main tour attraction and a source of pride for the locals is the Subterranean River National Park. The site features a very spectacular limestone landscape display in its navigable underground river, which flows directly to the sea. The underground river represents a habitat for conservation biodiversity.
Puerto Princesa is also the jump off point for Honda Bay which is rich in pristine white beaches with fine white sand. You can find them anywhere in the island. These water sceneries provide quite a contrast to the island’s green canopies. The clear emerald-green waters are truly a fascinating sight to behold. The islands in Honda Bay gives the beach lovers a much sought-after uncrowded and unspoilt haven that one can never find anywhere else in the Philippines. One of these Puerto Princesa beaches is Nagtabon Beach, which is located in the western coast of Palawan and is a two-hour ride from the city proper.
The City has two prevailing types of climate. The type that prevails in the west coast has two distinct seasons: six months dry (November- April), and six months wet (May-October), with the heaviest recorded rainfall coming in September, while the driest month is February.
