I have visited Port Barton about 3 times and for me, its getting lovelier each time. This time, a close friend Ms. Beth Lim contacted me to tour around Port Barton a VIP guest, Mother Biboy Arboleda of ABS-CBN. Mother Bibs, as he is fondly called by people conveyed his desire to rent a drone for his birthday shoot on his youtube channel Mother Bibs TV so I contacted a local drone pilot Kevin Aquino immediately and later we were on our way to Port Barton.

When you talk about Palawan, you immediately think about going to El Nido or Coron. The world-renowned Underground River could also be a popular option, or even the Firefly watching and the crocodiles in the city, and the quaint but fairly beautiful Baker's Hill are the more tourist-inclined spots of the province. But having been in Palawan several times for work, my friends and I wanted to explore less-commercialized beaches and we didn't regret hopping on that scraggly van to discover the beautiful gem that is Port Barton.
A little over a year ago, I went on a weekend trip to a less known-place called Port Barton. This small fishing village in San Vicente, Palawan is located 3 hours by land from Puerto Princesa & about 4 hours from El Nido. I shared with you all the details of my trip - click this link to take you to that article. That Port Barton blog is actually one of the most read posts in this website.
Many travellers will come to Palawan in the Philippines and may only go to El Nido - the famous spot for island hopping.
We however, spent 5 days in El Nido and 4 days in Port Barton so we got a good taste and feel for both places.
In reality, opinion is subjective and very much dependant upon what your expectations and wants are to begin with. If you're looking for somewhere busier with plenty of nightlife and lots of hostels where you can meet people then El Nido may be the place for you. If you want to chill and take a few days to just relax on the beach then don't miss Port Barton.
Port Barton is a quiet fishing village located in one of the sheltered bays of San Vicente, a town on the north-western side of the main island province of Palawan in the Philippines. Compared to the top tourist hubs in Palawan like El Nido and Coron, San Vicente is still pretty laid-back, peaceful and uncommercialized.
