Port Barton is a very laid-back, quiet town that is perfect for chilling out for a few days, or weeks. There are a handful of places to stay and eat around town. The sunsets over the bay are so spectacular you won’t be able to get enough. The sand at the beach is a golden colour and on a sunny day, the water is clear. The water here is great for swimming. The only downside are the jellyfish. Even so, we swam here for 5 days straight and only saw, and got stung by, one.

The surrounding islands are beautiful and doing a snorkel trip is a must. Boats go for about 1500p for a 7 hour day including lunch. Snorkel gear will need to be rented on top of that price. A mask and snorkel is 100p and fins are 100p. El Busero has some equipment. Renting a kayak, going for a dive or hiking out to the waterfall are other options.

There’s not a great assortment of items for sale at the little shops, they have all the necessities but don’t expect to find a variety of fruit, vegetables or snacks. Electricity is on from 6:00pm to 12:00midnight.

There are no ATMs or banks, so bring enough cash from Puerto Princesa.
