Palawan vs Boracay

Which is the better beach destination?

The big dilemma is whether to go to Palawan or Boracay. On both islands, you’ll find warm Filipino hospitality, stunning beaches and a range of fun activities.

With our travel guide, you can get to know both islands better and get inspired.

Being Palaweño, we think Boracay is great, but Palawan is better  🙂


Both islands have a pleasant climate throughout the year. The period between November and May has the least rainfall. February, March and April are often the driest months, while in July, August and September it rains frequently on both islands.


Solo Travel

Although both destinations are good options for solo travelers.
Boracay attracts more tourists than Palawan, so there are many opportunities to make new friends here.
On the other hand, in Palawan it is easy to find less crowded beaches where you can spend some time alone in the tranquility that this place has to offer.


Family Trip

Boracay is the clear winner when it comes to family friendliness as resorts here offer more kid-friendly options such as babysitting services, kids’ clubs and a range of activities to keep the kids busy.


Honeymoon or Romantic Getaway

Palawan and Boracay are undoubtedly the most beautiful places for a dream honeymoon in the Philippines. However, Palawan clearly has the edge over Boracay here. Here you are more likely to find charming resorts on private islands with villas overthe water.
If you are looking for complete seclusion, Palawan’s island-based resorts are unbeatable.


Best for watersports, Adventure, and Activities

Without a doubt, Palawan offers the best snorkeling and diving opportunities that are guaranteed to impress.
As of now, all water sports, including kiteboarding and jet skiing, are prohibited on Boracay to protect the island’s biodiversity.
Don’t like the water but still want some action? There are trekking and hiking tours available in Palawan. If you’re an adventurer who likes to be out in nature, Palawan should be next on your list.
Palawan is full of inspiring natural places: Waterfalls, mountains, and forests. There are a number of hikes, from relatively short walks to challenging mountain routes.


Things to see and to do

Many would suggest Palawan instead of Boracay for a 10-day vacation because Palawan offers a more extensive range of attractions and things to do.
With an endless list of idyllic islands and natural wonders to explore, Palawan is the perfect place for travelers seeking an authentic experience.
Palawan is also highly recommended for those who want to learn about the local culture and experience the “Filipino” feel.
Boracay is a vacation destination with sun, sand and sea, perfect for relaxing days.


Best for Nightlife

Year after year, tourists flock to Boracay Island to drink and dance the night away. White Beach was once the heart of Boracay’s vibrant nightlife.
Boracay Island was closed for a six-month rehabilitation period and is still recovering from the effects of mass tourism. The new rules restrict drinking and smoking on the beach and beach parties have been banned.
Nightlife on Boracay is still lively and fun after reopening, but it’s not the same as it used to be.
Nightlife on Palawan is virtually non-existent, but provides an idyllic setting for a relaxing evening in a rustic restaurant or bar under the starry night sky.


Accessibility and Getting Around

As for accessibility, there are many flights to and from both destinations. The small size of Boracay Island makes getting around easier and hassle-free.
To explore Palawan, you can rent a car or take a local jeepney/tricycle. The shuttle bus/van will take you anywhere on the island from El Nido to Rio Tuba. Cabs are only available in Puerto Princesa, but tricycles can be rented on both islands.

5 Stunning Highlights of Palawan

El Nido

The most icon place in Palawan, perhaps, is El Nido. The clear aquamarine water, limestone cliffs, and lagoons of Bacuit Bay are just some of the highlights of El Nido.

Underground River

Puerto Princesa’s Underground River National Park has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.
The park features a spectacular limestone karst landscape with a subterranean river that emerges directly into the sea.

Coron Island

Home to the crystal-clear-water lake, secluded coves, and shipwrecks teeming with marine life, Coron Island is great for diving and snorkeling opportunities.

Balabac Islands

The municipality of Balabac in the south of Palawan isn’t lacking for scenic unspoiled islands. With pristine coral white and pink beaches and Philippine’s most inviting crystal clear waters, the islands of Balabac are the true hidden treasure of Palawan.

Tubbataha Reef

Philippines’ best sites are found in Tubbataha Reef. The place is very remote and only accessible via liveaboard, perfect for uncrowded dives and plenty of marine life.

5 Stunning Highlights of Boracay

Boracay’s White Beach

The dreamy White Beach is the Boracay’s top tourist draw. The 4km-long postcard-perfect stretch of white powdery sand lined with resorts, restaurants, and bars, is the center of the attractions of Boracay Island. Despite the rehabilitation, Boracay’s White Beach still lands 9th spot in the Top 25 Asia’s best beaches list of the TripAdvisor’s 2019 Travelers’ Choice Awards.

Ariel’s Point

Ariel’s Point in Panay Island (about 35-minutes boat ride away from Boracay) is a unique location with turquoise swimming holes, colorful marine life, lush tropical forests, and volcanic rock formations.
Ariel’s Point is the perfect place to check cliff diving off your bucket list.

Crocodile Island

Don’t worry, Crocodile Island looks like a crocodile head, but there aren’t any crocodiles there. This uninhabited island is regarded as one of the best dive and snorkeling sites of Boracay. The island has a teeming reef in shallow crystal clear water.

Puka Beach

Puka Beach is a tranquil alternative to White Beach. Puka is a picture-perfect beach located on the northern shore of Boracay.
It got its name from the Puka Shells which are harvest by the locals and used for making necklaces and bracelets.

Diniwid Beach

The small Diniwid Beach located on the north-western part of Boracay Island is another place worth visiting.
It is very secluded hence ideal for those who want a bit of peace and quiet away from the crowds of White Beach.
