After our trip to Boayan Island we planned to move to Port Barton next. There are no direct roads that links the two barangays. We have 2 options either we take the van going to Roxas then ride the jeep there or wait for the boat coming from Port Barton to arrive and wait again for it to go back to Port Barton.
It was already 10:30AM when we arrived at the Poblacion from Boayan Island. The jeep leaves to Port Barton from Roxas at around 11AM and Roxas is still a good 2 hours away. Facing facts, it’s not possible if we do that route. So all we had to do was wait for more than 4 hours until the boat going to Port Barton leaves. It was a long wait, but we decided to eat the waiting away. Below are instructions on how to get to Port Barton from Poblacion of San Vicente and vice versa. If you’re staying in Port Barton and you want to visit the Longest Beach in the Philippines for a day trip, this post may help you. Port Barton to Poblacion By Boat There’s a boat that leaves around 9AM from Port Barton that will head to the Poblacion of San Vicente. The schedule is not that clear so it would be better if you coordinate with the Tourist Assitance Center to know the schedule. The name of the boat is Magdalena. Fare is 100 Pesos per person for locals and 150 Pesos per person for foreigners. Travel time is approximately 1 hour.
If the schedule is not fit for your schedule you can hire a boat with the boatmans under the Tourist Assistance Center. Usual price is 1,500 Pesos for 4 pax but prices are negotiable. Travel time is approximately 1 hour.
