Discovering San Vicente (El Nido)

Hidden between the iconic spots of El Nido and Puerto Prinsesa, San Vicente is a hidden gem off the western side of Palawan Island. San Vicente’s Long Beach is known as the Philippines’ longest white sand beach, traversing a total of 14.7 kilometers. Life on the coastline is very relaxed and peaceful, a far cry from the crowded and bustling shores of Boracay or El Nido. And although accommodations and businesses are presently concentrated around the Poblacion area, business is expected to pick up and grow with the completion of the new airport and the arrival of SkyJet airlines into the municipality’s runway.
