    Come and discover the stunning San Vicente’s Long Beach lined with golden sand, palm trees, and gorgeous blue water.

    When to go:

    High Season

    San Vicente peak season starts in November and ends nearly in May.

    San Vicente is still a relatively unknown travel destination in Palawan, hence it never gets crowded, even during the peak season and public holidays.

    However, due to the limited number of hotels in San Vicente, it’s advisable to book the rooms in advance if you are planning to travel for Christmas and New Year.

     

    Low Season

    The rainy seasons starts in June and lasts till October. August is the wettest month.

    One of the downsides of San Vicente is that there are not many things to do when it rains.

     

    Events and Festivals

    The most important festival in San Vicente is the  Malagnang Festival. The word “Malagnang”, in the local dialect literally means “Mud” which signifies fertile soil that gave life and prosperity to the early settlers of the town. This annual celebration is held in June.
