Palawan : Port Barton... Paradise!

Surrender in Paradise
I have been to paradise... even for just a couple of days. Going there is hard but leaving it is much, much harder. I only have good things to say about Port Barton and I feel that even what I say would not justify the beauty of the place. It is paradise in its simplest sense.

Port Barton is essentially a one-road town where the jungle drops precipitously into the bay. And as Reader's Digest would define it, it is the kind of place where after just a few strolls down the beach you feel you don't want to share the tranquility with outsiders.

The word tranquility hits the spot. Every period of the day is a scene waiting to unfold. From the rising of the sun coming from the mountains and forests to the setting of the sun right in front of the beach where you may either lie or sit waiting.

Humble Accomodation
And in between sunrise and sunset, the laidback atmosphere of the place will either induce you to sleep or do moderate activities like strolling into into its white-sanded beach or hut-hopping at its friendly community. Or if you are interested in other beach activities, it also offers Island-Hopping and snorkling to guests.

    1. Yup. I always say that there is more to Palawan than the Underground River and Coron. This place certainly can hold its own against those places.

  5. It looks like a beauty of a spot. I would find it difficult to leave also, I'm sure.

    Thanks for your recent visit to my blog. I have to say that I love the name of yours. I have a soft spot for clever play on words.

    1. Sorry for the late reply.

      I took plane from Manila to Puerto Princesa. Then I missed the morning bus trip to Port Barton so I had to take the bus to San Vicente. Then I rode a motorized banca from San Vicente to Port Barton.
