A convenient place to stay when exploring the island, the city of Puerto Princesa sits on the coast in the center of the landmass.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sabang Beach and Palawan Special Battalion WW2 Memorial Museum. Spend the 24th (Fri) exploring nature at Puerto Princesa Underground River. There's still lots to do: stroll through Nagtabon Beach, steep yourself in history at Plaza Cuartel, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Palaweno Brewery, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.
