We were happy to leave El Nido town and jumped in to a van that would take us to Port Barton (straight, the tout promised…). So off course we were dropped of at a junction where we were ALMOST in Port Barton. We took a tricycle for the last part from our route on a bad but very beautiful road.
What a relief to arrive in PB after the hustle and bustle of El Nido, the relaxed mood was immediately to our liking and the bay was absolutely Beeeee-autiful! In other words, Prot Barton was exactly what we needed.
We decided immediately that there wouldn’t be anymore island hopping for us so we actually didn’t do a lot the first day 😉 The second day we walked (solid ground, still our most favorable place to be!) to white beach. A beautiful stretch of sand as part of a small resort. You can walk in as a visitor for a small fee. Seaside hammocks, coconut trees to provide some shade from the burning sun. What can I say about that afternoon? Welllll, we did absolutely nothing again 🙂
While being in town we heard some rumors about a new bar in direction of white beach with the promising name ‘Jungle bar’. Glad the rumors where true, after walking up by myself to make sure there was a bar and then picking up my princess that didn’t want to walk if we weren’t sure there was a bar, we arrived at the bar. Amazed by the friendliness of the owners, the beauty of the bar and the location we sat down, ordered a ‘well deserved’ beer and talked with some other travelers… A very good recipe for our last night in the Philippines… Mixed feelings about leaving but we were looking forward to go to Malaysian Borneo and it’s wildlife.
