Is it El Nido, Coron, or Puerto Princesa? What would be the better way to know the journeyers’ preference than to conduct a survey, right? That’s what exactly Carmela Alvarez, a fellow blogger, did.

In her survey called “Best Vacation: My Favorite Palawan Destination“, bloggers, locals, and travelers were the participants. There were five choices, namely Hidden Lagoons in El Nido, Underground River, Coron, Kayangan Lake, and Honda Bay. Kayangan Lake is also in Coron and Honda Bay is also found in Puerto Princesa.

Of approximately 80 participants, 34 said their favorite was El Nido, particularly the Hidden Lagoon, whereas 25 participants favorited Coron, and the remaining 19 voted for Puerto Princesa. At least five of them have yet to visit Coron or El Nido. There are also a few that answered all of the above.

El Nido’s Hidden Lagoon got the highest vote for its scenery which is said to be reminiscent of a scene in the movie “The Beach”. Being located within a beach makes the lagoon an unexpected and surprising discovery for many. That, and the lagoon’s spectacular view, easily makes this spot someone’s favorite for the day – or always as far as the survey’s participants are concerned.


Coron came next with Kayangan Lake as the most favorite place. Kayangan Lake is one of the cleanest lakes in the Philippines and it is also relatively tourist-friendly. Coron is among the world’s best diving havens, so it is not surprising when participant divers voted for Coron.

Puerto Princesa was the least voted Palawan destination in the survey. However, those who voted for either Underground River or Honda Bay were just as passionate as those who voted for El Nido or Coron in expressing their fascination towards the place.


Honda Bay

There was one participant that mentioned Nacpan beach as his most favorite Palawan destination. It probably does not sound familiar but I believe that must be unspoiled beauty too like the Balacbac beach located in the Southern tip of Palawan.

How about you which Palawan destination is your most favorite (so far)?
