Port Barton is a village on the north-west coast of the island of Palawan in the Philippines. Port Barton is a quieter, smaller, and more laid-back version of El Nido. The activities you can do here are very similar to those in El Nido, but for about half the price. Port Barton doesn't usually attract luxury seeking, status vacationers. Instead, it has become a popular choice for budget backpackers and other adventurous international travelers, who appreciate and enjoy the rural, relaxed atmosphere and natural beauty that this quiet and peaceful beach side village, on the edge of the rainforest, has to offer.Port Barton is not as popular or progressively developed as Boracay or Puerto Galera. Therefore, it does not attract busloads of domestic tourists. Also, due to its remote location, Port Barton does not suffer from hordes of photo snapping, day trippers, as does the more accessible, touristic Sabang, or the more promoted El Nido with its airport. Much of the road to Port Barton has been paved, though considerable stretches are still unpaved, which can mean very slow travel times especially if you're on a jeepney. There are now regular van services between Puerto Princesa and Port Barton.
