I think we all agree that Philippines has some of the world’s best beaches, islands, and diving spots. This year, Linapacan Island, Palawan ranked as the top of the world’s clearest water to swim in before you die.
American news site Daily News Dig recently came up with a list of “35 Clearest Waters in the World to Swim in Before You Die”, and in a list dominated by European and South Pacific bodies of water, Palawan’s Linapacan Island sat squarely in the top spot.
“This island is in a remote province and home to many beaches with super clear water. The island has a population of just 14,180 people,” read the short caption below a snapshot by Scott Sporleder of the breath-takingly clear water by the tiny island. The Maldives at the second spot which sit in the Indian Ocean. Followed by Bodrum, Turkey located long the southern coast of the peninsula.

El Nido, Palawan also served as one of the locations during the Philippine shoot of the Hollywood hit movie, “The Bourne Legacy,” last year.
