The Emerald Beach and Nature Park, Dos Palmas Resort, is a town in the west of Palawan and the most westerly town in the Philippines. Although the town itself is the provincial headquarters and the provincial capitol, it is one of 38 separate towns within the Philippines that are not under the control of the provinces in which it is situated, and thus an autonomous area within Palawan.
Today Puerto Princesa is a favourite touristic town with many seaside towns and fish inns. The Philippines' most clean and greenish town. The colonizers of Spain established the village on 4 March 1872 as part of their discovery of the area. When they searched the coastline of Palawan for a main town, they came across a steeply sloping crag.
In Puerto Princesa, the first fair took place in a place where today there is a Mark. By May 1872, the port of Puerto Princesa became the centre of Spanish naval operations in the area, as the bay fulfilled all the naval demands. Puerto Princesa was recognised by the local authority in 1894 as one of the most attractive cities in the region due to the ordered layout of roads, homes and villas and the cleanness of the municipality.
Puerto Princesa was appointed by the New American Administration in 1911 as the provincial government of Palawan with Major John Brown as Lieutenant Governor. On January 1, 1970, the former congressman Ramon Mitra Jr. transformed the old part of the village into a small village under R.A. 5906 in the version of P.D. 437.
Féliberto R. Oliveros, Jr. became the first mayor of the city. Puerto Princesa has been the centre of activity in Palawan since its inception. It is not only the headquarters of government, but also the core of the provincial economy in terms of business, services and industries. Princesa Puerto is situated in the middle of Palawan Island.

Edward S. Hagedorn, then Puerto Princesa's major, revealed the environmentally sound and economic "Trikebayan" (which does not produce either sound or coal monoxide) in the Kapihan sa Sulo Forums, Sulo Hotel, Quezon Town. Not discouraged former Hagedorn to pursue a vision to see all electrical cars, especially to replace the throttle-bikes in town.
A dealer for these tricycles on the northern motorway was shut down in 2011. Though Puerto Princesa has this daring roadmap for electrical cars, the City Council and the Tourism Board (at the request of a visitor in August 2011) has declared that there is no publicised or advertised roadmap for the present and prospective needs and security of walkers or cyclists.
