Island Hopping in Port Barton Bay

Port Barton Bay in Palawan attracts tropical vacationers with its gorgeous turquoise waters, hidden coves, and rich marine life. An island hopping tour of this hidden gem will wow you. Island hopping tours are a beautiful way to learn about the region’s natural beauty and the importance of maintaining it. Today, I took part in this activity!

As the boat leaves Port Barton settlement, limestone cliffs and lush flora meet you. The first destination is frequently German Island, where pristine white sand invites relaxation. Snorkeling in the coral gardens shows the bay’s diverse marine life.

Next, Inaladelan Island, or “Turtle Island,” as our boatmen explains, provides the experience of seing peaceful sea turtles sliding over the water. We weren’t too lucky as we only saw one. Boatmen says the turtles haven’t been seen that much since the last strong typhoon a few months ago that battered the area.

Further on, Exotic Island shows Palawan’s stunning emerald waters and golden sands. The tour ends with a visit to the sandbar of the Starfish Island. This lovely spot for snorkeling, kayaking, or just relaxing in the sun lives up to its name.

A few island hopping photos:

Boatmen stopped at the Twin Reef in Port Barton Bay and gave passengers time to check the wonder. All with instructions not to harm the reefs in any way.
I think the boat is named “Olivia Plissen”.

It’s amazing how clear the waters are.
Our boat beached near the southern edge of Albguan Island to take our lunch break.
Fresh coconut which I bought for the water. Would have been truly refreshing if I could put ice in it but the island doesn’t have it.
While waiting for lunch to be served, this chicken jumped on our table.
Lunch is served for the “island hoppers”. Chicken, squid, crabs, pork, noodles, fish, eggplants, and mangoes. Other fruits not in photo.

Lunch was served earlier at this small hut.
This rocky part is just near the Kayoya and Inadauan Islands, not that far from Albguan.
