What To See, Things To Do, Itinerary And Accommodation To San Vicente, Palawan



Palawan is usually known for Busuanga, Coron, Puerto Princesa and of course El Nido.  I thought I thought I already knew all of the spots that are worth a visit in Palawan, but wait there's one slowly finding it's way to boast its tourism industry, the San Vicente Palawan. I learned about this during the Palawan trade fair I joined few weeks so I am once again sharing this to  those who may have already explored Palawan and looking for more. 

Brief History of San Vicente, Palawan
The municipality of San Vicente was created on Jun 21, 1969 by virtue of Republic Act 5821. It is located northeast of main island of Palawan and 186 km from Puerto Princesa City.

Fishing and farming are the major industries in San Vicente, while tourism is just starting to bud in recent years.  

San Vicente offers a unique tourist destination endowed with beauty of its own having vast unspoiled forest and mangrove areas, white sand beaches, thriving coral reefs, enchanting islands and islets, magnificent waterfalls, endemic species of diverse flora and fauna.

Its white sand, abundant and diverse marine life, waterfalls and crystal clear waters are  its prime attraction.
