A top New York-based magazine has included Palawan on its list of 13 places in the world where one can see the "bluest water."
The tropical paradise got the nod from Travel + Leisure for its "jungle-filled islands surrounded by stunning teal waters teeming with fish and coral reefs and an incredible array of lagoons, coves, and secret beaches."
Writer Melissa Locker made special mention of El Nido, Linapacan Island, and its famous underground river.
The other spot on the list are:
Crater Lake, Oregon
Con Son, Vietnam
Devil’s Bay, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands
Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia
Ambergris Caye, Belize
Five-Flower Lake, Jiuzhaigou National Park, China
Havelock Island, India
Islas de Rosario, Colombia
Peyto Lake, Alberta, Canada
To Sua Ocean Trench, Samoa
This is not the first time Travel + Leisure has put the spotlight on Palawan. It released an article in July, revealing that the island has been voted by its readers as the best for 2017.
In 2016, it listed Palawan as second.
