If ever you find yourself jet setting around the resplendent Philippine islands, you’d be remiss not to make a pitstop on Palawan, a slender archipelago that’s earned itself the nickname “Philippines’ Best Island.” A place of serenity and preservation, Palawan is known for its wildlife sanctuaries, protected areas, and two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. How could we not get inspired?!
When you arrive, we recommend making a beeline to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. What initially comes across as a rugged rock face is a real “Mary Poppins bag” situation: put on your helmet, hop into a small boat, and pass through a gap in the limestone to reveal a jaw-dropping network of caves, using the park’s namesake underground river as your aquatic roadway.
As you make your way across the island, crossing paths with more than 200 species of birds and 600 species of butterflies, what you might not realize is that Palawan’s flora and fauna don’t look like what you typically find in the rest of the Philippines – instead, its furry and floral friends resemble those found in Borneo, a large neighboring island!
With visions of turquoise waters and verdant mountaintops guiding our way, Eidon’s paradisiacal Palawan print is the tropical trip you’ve been waiting for. A fresh, young take on a classic beach motif, this collection layers lush green fronds against a rosy blush backdrop. An abundance of flattering cuts and fits makes this swimwear series a must for any and all adventurers, so don’t forget to pack your Palawan as you make your way to one of the most revered islands on earth.
