Mindoro is (apparently) the seventh-largest island in the Philippines – which isn’t bad going when you consider there’s over 7,000 in total!
The map below shows where Mindoro is in relation to Batangas (Luzon) and Coron (Palawan). As you can see, Mindoro is perfectly positioned as the gateway to the stunning province of Palawan. There is also a Fastcat boat service now going from Bulalacao (highlighted) to the immensely popular Boracay Island. Within a day you can reach either of these fantastic destinations.
