When it comes to destination recommendations, perhaps the most common question we get is: Boracay or Palawan? And the second most common? El Nido or Coron? And these questions are incredibly difficult to answer. Boracay and Palawan are apples and pears; they are completely different. El Nido and Coron, although they are very similar and are both in Palawan, also have their own pros and cons.
But if you have more time and extra budget, you don’t have to choose at all!
From April 30, 2022, AirSWIFT will start flying from The nest‘s Li Airport to corona‘s Busuanga Airport and back, another addition to the airline’s growing network. You can have both Coron and El Nido in your itinerary without worrying too much about the transfer.
In the past, if you want to explore both Palawan gems in one trip, your only option is to take a fast craft which would take 4 hours. The new AirSWIFT route would significantly reduce this travel time to a flight of 40 minutes. This gives you more time to dip your toes on the beach, explore the underwater world, or simply take in the beauty of the two Palawan destinations.
AirSWIFT already flies from Boracay (Caticlan Airport) to El Nido and back. The boutique airline is the first to offer this route that takes you directly from one paradise to another. They sail this route twice a week (Monday and Friday, as of this writing). This means you can enjoy all three of these amazing destinations in just one trip!
Boracay’s White Beach is the best beach destination in the country that has taken the top spot on many lists of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The long stretch of fine white sand that glistens against the clear blue water has attracted the attention of thousands of tourists over the years. Palawan, on the other hand, is home to not only beautiful beaches, but postcard-worthy limestone cliffs, breathtaking lagoons, diving and snorkeling spots, and other island-hopping destinations.
