Port Barton can be reached from other popular travel destinations in Palawan. All routes are operated by air-conditioned vans.  A trip from El Nido will take about 4,5 hours, the one from Taytay 2,5 hours and Sabang trip will take 3 hours.

El Nido and Taytay are on the same route. The van starts in El Nido and 1,5 hours later makes a stop at Taytay. The trips last 4,5 hours or 2,5 hours respectively. The trip from El Nido costs 600 Peso.

Of course you can also try the indirect connection. Any bus or van heading for Puerto Princesa can drop you off at the San Jose Junction just 23 km from Port Barton. All you need to do is catch any service going to Port Barton from Puerto Princesa or Roxas. Alternatively you can go to Roxas and take the 11:30 jeepney to Port Barton.

Sabang is half way between Puerto Princesa and Port Barton but it is 36 km from the national highway so you first need to get to Salvacion junction, where you can hop on a van or bus going from Puerto to Port Barton.

Here you will find the timetables for the above connections.

    1. Hi adelchaar,

      Did you ever get an answer for this? We want to do the same as you mention as we’re heading there in a couple of months. Did you manage to get to Port Barton from Sabang by boat?


      1. Hi! Al last we used a car with driver and was so easy and quick! No one recommended us to use a boat. It’s so expensive and not very legal for what we understand…

        Enjoy your stay…Palawan is amazing!


      1. Hi! We payed 4500 PHP for the car and the driver. Everyone told us not to go by boat!!

        I hope this can help you!
