San Vicente is nestled in the north-west of Palawan’s mainland, bounded by the Philippine West Sea in the West, the municipality of Taytay in the north, Roxas in the East and City of Puerto Princesa in the Southwest.
The most practical way for the short-term visitor to get into San Vicente is by air. The newly opened airport in San Vicente, is served by Philippine Airlines providing a convenient direct flight from Manila Clark. The flight to San Vicente has been suspended until further notice. We believe it will resume as soon as more tourists will travel to Palawan.
San Vicente airport is near the famous Long Beach and 20 minutes away from the town proper.
A tricycle ride from the airport to your hotel on the long beach would only take 10 minutes.
Another way to reach San Vicente is via Puerto Princesa International Airport, which is located about 3 hours away.
Regular shuttle vans operate to/from Puerto Princesa. Another option would be to hire a private van and avoid the hassle of using public transport. The private van is also the best option whether you have a large family or you are a group of friends.
