Port Barton is not a super well-known destination, but if you have the chance you should definitely visit before it is well and truly “discovered”. The little coastal town is much more laid back than spots such as El Nido and Coron which have become victims of their own success. That said the secret about this destination is out, and it is growing quickly in popularity.

The good news is the beaches are still pretty quiet. Best in the area is without doubt White Beach and this is reached by a 10 minute woodland walk from Port Barton.  En route to the beach, you will pass palm trees and mango trees with the sound of the ocean nearby.

The beach iself is a long stretch of white of sand backed by gently swaying coconut palms, and the water here is a beautiful clear turquoise. This beach is perfect for complete relaxation, but if you fancy a little more activity there is good snorkeling.

The pristine beach is surrounded by forests, as well as amazing waterfalls. Back on the beach, you can tie a hammock between towering coconut trees and forget your worries. White Beach truly has everything you imagine in a tropical escape, and you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere - which you kind of are!
