Port Barton

Port Barton town is a small fishing and farming village located on a sheltered bay along Palawan’s west coast. Port Barton is also a Barangay within the municipality of San Vicente. The popular activities for tourists are island hopping, snorkeling, beach lazing and swimming, either in the ocean or in one of the two nearby waterfalls. The mangrove river tour can be a fascinating outing for those with an interest in nature. You will find most of the tourist accommodation along the 1.3 km beach but there are also a few resorts on the nearby islands and secluded beaches.

Its tranquility and frontier feel continues to lure me back. Tourism stagnated in Port Barton for many years because its access road was only passable during dry weather. This is now no longer the case. Concreting of the worst sections of the road was completed in late 2009. The short traveling time now makes Port Barton an option for Filipino tourists who have little more than a weekend for their Palawan Holiday.

There are about ten guest houses in Port Barton and a few a small grocery stores selling basic supplies for the locals. There are no banks, ATM machines or places to change money, so make sure that you have pesos in cash with you, not only for your stay here, but also for your onward journey. Port Barton has a limited electricity supply which comes on at 6PM and shuts down again at midnight.
