Best Affordable Island Resort: Sangat Island Dive Resort

Courtesy of Sangat Island Dive Resort

Sangat Island Dive Resort, Palawan, Philippines

It’s not hard to understand why T+L readers voted Palawan their favorite island in the 2013 World’s Best survey; the lightly populated archipelago shows off the sublime underwater richness of the Philippines. After diving or snorkeling in the surrounding coral reef, retreat back to your cottage at this low-key resort at the foot of towering limestone cliffs. Simple tropical furnishings—bamboo floors and walls, bright textiles, and terraces slung with hammocks—keep the focus on the outrageously beautiful ocean views. sangat.com.ph; from $85
