Once again three beautiful places in the Philippines were included in the list of top 20 islands in the world. These are Palawan, Boracay, and Cebu.

The US travel magazine, Conde Nast Traveler, named Palawan as the world’s best island for the second straight year.

Palawan, which is home to the famous Underground River, is known for being among the world’s best spots for snorkeling with its crystal blue waters.

“Palawan’s natural wonder is one of the longest underground rivers in the world, traveling five miles through a subterranean cave system. Guided boat tours take visitors down a portion of the waterway, where karsts, natural rock formations created by dissolving limestone, loom in every direction,” according to the Magazine.

In 1999, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared Palawan’s subterranean river a World Heritage Site.

Although listed as the most densely populated island in the Philippines, Cebu is famous for its beaches.

Boracay, on the other hand, is described as the island “with powdery white sand and shallow azure water ideal for swimming and snorkeling.

More than 128,000 travelers participated in the survey. The islands were “judged on a set of criteria relevant to their category, based on a standard five-point scale: excellent, very good, good, fair and poor.”
