Palawan Island Philippines has been dubbed the "most beautiful" island in the world. The "sheer perfection" of the island has been touted by a number of renowned publications. What exactly is so breath-taking about the said island in the Asian country?

While most beach lovers would head off to Maui in Hawaii or Boracay of the Philippines, others flock to the most under-appreciated of island destinations. This would be none other than Palawan island Philippines. Huffington Post had named Palawan as the most beautiful island in the world thanks to its sheer perfection in its report.

However, it was Conde Nast Traveler's Reader Choice Awards that had named Palawan Island Philippines "The Top Island in the World." With its emerald green to blue beaches, mountains, and villages, Palawan province is indeed one of the worlds' "otherworldly" paradise.

Palawan island Philippines is accessible via plane or boat. If by plane, it's a one and a half hour from Manila, but there are other routes available as well such as from Cebu and Iloilo. Travellers from around the world flock to the island during the months of Oct. to May so it's highly suggested to book tickets beforehand.

What activities may be enjoyed in Palawan island Philippines? Apart from the usual island-hopping, there are a number of secluded coves, sinkholes, lagoons, and cliffs to be explored. Dive into the blue sea as Coron Bay of Palawan is said to have one of the best scuba spots in the world, where shipwrecks line the bottom.

Palawan island Philippines also has an abundance of rare wildlife such as the Philippine mouse-deer, Philippine pangolin, purple crabs, and the Palawan bearcat. The Guardian has already noted a few adventures in Palawan Island Philippines. For those who want to take a dive into one of the world's beautiful islands, best add it on your 2015 bucket list.
