San Vicente News
Hindi pa opisyal na nagsisimula ang summer season pero pwedeng-pwede nang magbabad sa Long Beach ng San Vicente, Palawan, o ang tinaguriang "Longest White Beach" sa Pilipinas.
May dalampasigan itong aabot ng halos 15 kilometro. Pino ang buhangin at hindi pa gaanong matao.
Pagkatapos mag-enjoy sa dagat, subukan namang mag-nature tripping sa isang ilog malapit dito -- ang Inandeng River sa Barangay New Agutaya.

I felt overstimulated upon departing our hotel in Boracay, and looked forward to promised serenity in Palawan. However, I was unaware of quite how overstimulated I would be by the end of the day.
See, Secret Paradise Resort & Turtle Sanctuary is remote. Off the electrical grid. Only accessible by boat. It ticked all my 'get away from it all' boxes. The thing is, I underestimated the potent combination that is a remote place and a third world infrastructure. I had no idea it would take from before sunrise to after sunset to arrive! To give you an idea, it went like this: 30 min van ride, 20 ...
Port Barton is a little village on the beautiful island of Palawan in the Philippines. There are many little islands dotting the waters just beyond the shores, and these are where I filmed this video.
