Palawan Island Named As Most Beautiful Island in the World Conde Nast Traveler

Written By Real Kevin Jay on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 | 3:45 PM

Palawan, Philippines named as best and most beautiful island in the world by Conde Nast Traveler. Philippines bagged another pride after our very own Palawan island ranked no. 1 for the most beautiful island around the globe by Conde Nast Traveler's Reader Choice Awards.
Palawan island beat Hawaii, Greece and Austrial's promising islands. Below is the top 10 list of Best and Most Beautiful Islands in the World

Palawan Island took the top spot and got reader rating of 88.750.

This small island—one of the Philippines’ 7,107—shot to the top of our list this year with a recent claim to fame: It’s now home to one of the new seven natural wonders of the world, Puerto Princesa Subterranean River. Pro tip: Palawan's natural wonder is one of the longest underground rivers in the world, traveling five miles through a subterranean cave system. Guided boat tours take visitors down a portion of the waterway, where karsts, natural rock formations created by dissolving limestone, loom in every direction. Getting there: From Manila, it’s an hour-and-15-minute flight to Puerto Princesa, Palawan’s main airport. Alternately, ferries travel between Manila and the island several days a week (about 24 hours each way).
There, beautiful blue water mixes with emerald green, jungle-filled mountains that appear to rise up from the ocean, and small fishing villages dot the island. Together with its neighboring islands, it creates the Palawan province, aka paradise. - huffingtonpost.com
