Puerto Princesa is a well-known tourist destination in Palawan, best known for the underground river besides other attractions. A city with half a million people, it has advantages such as choice of accommodation and nightlife.
The wind is on the rather light side here, but when the Amihan is northerly, there is a good side shore breeze—usually around 12 to 15 knots, but days with 20 to 30 knots as well. Prime months are December and January. The season here goes from November to March/April.
Kiteclubpalawan is a home-based kite school, operating at Emerald Playa Beach and Nature Park, 15 to 20 minutes drive from the heart of Puerto Princesa. The reef is about 500m from the beach and creates a big shallow flat water area, with some small waves outside.
There are cottages (overnight rates between 2,500 and 3,000 PHP) and a hotel right by the beach. Also, there are plenty of different accommodations in town; you can just come out by tricycle when the wind is on.
Puerto Princesa has a good choice of nightlife.
