Trip Details

This is a perfect option after a volunteering experience in Palawan.

The Palawan Beach Week is an excellent opportunity for any traveller looking for a relaxing week in one of Southeast Asia’s most beautiful locations. Palawan is widely considered to be one of the Philippines’ top destinations, with El Nido being the top spot for white sand beaches and blue water. It is famous for diving and snorkeling, and its diverse marine life offers fantastic opportunities for underwater wildlife spotting.

For those who join this programme, there is plenty of free time to take part in underwater activities, relax on the beach or explore the local area. El Nido is home to friendly locals and travellers can be sure to find a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere.

Two programme activities are scheduled for this week: on Wednesday you will spend a day exploring by kayak, and on Friday there is a relaxing, traditional Filipino massage to look forward to.

As a newly industrialized country, the Philippine economy which was once founded upon its agriculture is now moving towards an economy based on services and manufacturing.

It is unsurprising that the Philippines attracts tourists due to its incredibly rich biodiversity found across its islands. The mountains, rainforests and diving spots as well as its impressive cultural heritage all add to the reasons why the Philippines is such an incredible place to experience.
