We took a long, bumpy jeepney ride from El Nido (transfering in Roxas) to Port Barton accompanied by fellow tourists, locals, some cargo, and a fighting cock.

When arriving, we had no idea where to go so we went to the beach from the tourist check-in, turned right, and walked along the water looking at beachfront accommodation.
The beach of Port Barton - lots of fishing boats and perfect for long walks
After repeatedly asking "do you have rooms?" and "how much", we went with the cheapest option we could find, which turned out to be fairly luxurious for us.
If you are wondering where to stay in Port Barton, we recommend Summer Homes.
The entrance to Summer Homes from the beach - decorated fully for Christmas time
Summer Homes is a very clean hotel that has a really nice area near the beach to sit back, relax, and sip a fresh buko or San Miguel. The WiFi at summer homes worked surprisingly well, though like all places in Port Barton, there was no power from early morning to late afternoon.

We paid 270 peso ($7.50) per night in late November and stayed for almost a week.
