The island province of Palawan has reclaimed its top spot as the Best Island in the World for this year 2020.

The newest distinction was cited by the world-renowned travel publication Travel + Leisure, which now makes Palawan as a four-time winner of the said award.Palawan first earned the same distinction in 2013, followed by a back-to-back citation in 2016 and 2017.

According to Travel + Leisure writer Sara Clemence, the World’s Best Awards survey was conducted prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey closed on March 2, just before the widespread stay-at-home orders were implemented. Hence, she said, the result reflect the readers’ experiences before the ongoing global health crisis.

 Clemence described Palawan as a place where travelers could enjoy the haunting beauty of World War II wrecks underwater, as well as “explore old-growth rain forests, and paddle one of the world’s longest subterranean rivers at Puerto Princesa.”

“The landscape and scenery are just gorgeous. It offers the most beautiful beaches, resorts, and scenery anywhere,” she furthered.
