Last month, I flew from Manila to the paradise El Nido in Palawan Philippines. But even before I landed in Lio airport, I discovered something that has really caught my attention: The Long Beach in San Vicente, Palawan!
The thought of seeing a beach THAT long has made so much impact on me. It was my first time to actually see a white sandy beach as long as that! I was so sure that the 4-kilometer white sandy beach of Boracay is So what I did was talk to the locals when I arrived in El Nido and asked then where this place with very long stretch of white sand is located. I showed to them the photos I took using my camera and all of them answered San Vicente.
So while I was in El Nido, I tried to Google for more information about this place. It looks like the place I spotted is known to be the Long Beach in the town of San Vicente.
Although unverified, it is said to be the longest beach in the Philippines at 14 kilometers long! Whoa, 14 kilometers loooooooooong! I would definitely love to be in this place! The long beach is located in New Agutaya San Vicente Palawan Philippines.
Another interesting item to note is that another beach destination of Palawan, Port Barton is also located in the town of San Vicente. I would expect that in the next 5 to 10 years, tourist traffic to this area would balloon as the San Vicente Airport is scheduled to be opened soon.
And while this area will soon become the next target of tourists, I just hope that developments will not destroy the natural beauty of the area.
