Palawan Weather Forecast

Best time to visit Palawan 

Check out the Palawan weather forecast widget below to see Palawan weather trends and a forecast for the coming week. The province of Palawan has, like the rest of the Philippines, two main seasons: wet and dry.

In Palawan, the dry season runs from October to May, while the wet season runs from June to September. Due to ocean and wind currents and differences in geography, weather conditions are not exactly the same in Coron and El Nido, toward the northern tip of the province, as they are in Puerto Princesa, the capital city of the province located about 300 km southward.

You may already have guessed that the best time to visit Palawan is during the dry season, more specifically, in February and March, when there’s almost no chance of rain and before the hottest period of the year begins. Read further details below, so you can decide on the best period for your visit to Palawan.

Palawan Dry Season 

As mentioned, Palawan dry season starts in October and ends in May. The best time to visit Palawan, with a combination of agreeable temperatures of around 27°C and with as little rain as possible is February and March. The first months of dry season can still be rainy, while the last months are usually pretty hot and humid. It’s not an exact science though, so it’s best to check available weather forecasts before booking.

Palawan Wet Season 

From June to September the monsoon season settles upon Palawan. One positive here is that the temperature does not vary that much on average. It remains around 27°C, with peaks that can reach 33°C in May and June. Going to Palawan during wet season is not recommended. Heavy rains strike the region and tropical storms can happen at anytime, especially in the northern areas of the province. It is worth knowing that the rainy season lasts longer on the eastern side of Palawan. If you come to Palawan in October, head to the west coast to avoid the rain.
