With a well implemented Tourism Master Plan developed by Palafox Associates, the overwhelming cooperation between stakeholders and the Municipality of San Vicente Palawan, and the support from the national government through DOT – TIEZA, the Long Beach of San Vicente may become the “next Boracay” of the Philippines and maybe the “next Bali” of Asia.
Palafox Associates, a recipient of various international awards/recognition for urban planning, has developed Conceptual Tourism Master Plan (CTMP) for San Vicente Palawan and an Integrated Tourism Master Plan (ITMP) for the Long Beach, also in San Vicente. Both plans aim to promote an environmentally sound and sustainable development in San Vicente Palawan.
The Master Plan identified the Long Beach as the center of tourism development in the Municipality. As such, ITMP was formulated for the Long Beach area, more particularly for the Flagship TEZ.
Properties along the current existing concrete road (main road) was also identified as the “backbone” of development within the Flagship TEZ (Long Beach) and was referred to as the Tourism Road. As such, developments along this road are equally significant as the beach front developments. This makes properties along the existing concrete road as highly in demand, especially for those investors who could no longer afford the beach areas or those who would like to avoid the proposed restrictions for beach front developments (like the establishment of 3-meter bike lane, the no-build zone and the setback requirements).
Developments in San Vicente will be on different phasing. Although the Local government Unit (LGU) of San Vicente Palawan aims to develop the entire San Vicente as a whole, like making roads connecting all the villages/barangays, there will be some areas that are likely to become developed first. CTMP identified four (4) clusters based on the likelihood of becoming developed and the tourism potential.
Cluster 1 is expected to be fully developed within 5 to 10 years once the airport becomes fully operational, Cluster 2 in 10 to 15 years, Cluster 3 in 15 to 20 years and Custer 4 in at least 20 years.
In a larger picture, the grand plan is to connect the Underground River, San Vicente Palawan and El Nido to strengthen and sustain the tourism industry in Palawan.
