Between Coron in danger of being destroyed and El Nido slowly getting overrun, Palawan purists are in search of the good old days. Before the jostling crowds and the badly-planned theme parks, there was just paradise. Now that Palawan is approaching a tipping point, one of the small lights glimmering in the distance is Port Barton.
I left El Nido with migraine pounding my temples and eyes that throbbed like an open wound. Sitting in front, I already warned the driver that I might throw up. Ready, the driver handed me two red plastic bags. He thought though I had the typical motion sickness, not a fancy-sounding, often recurring, illness like migraine.

There's an advantage and disadvantage of staying in San Vicente town proper as I have learned. Advantage is that I get to stay real close to San Vicente's Long Beach, the longest white beach in Palawan which I have immensely enjoyed combing through.
