Port Barton Vlog 2: Literally Walking Between 2 Islands!

Port Barton Vlog 2: Literally Walking Between 2 Islands!


In my previous Port Barton video, we went snorkeling and checked out a few islands, even saw a turtle! In this video, I joined a different island hopping tour. This is classified as Tour B although some islands are different from the posted ones as the tour operators aren't that strict yet, they accommodate if their passengers request a different island. I believe that is still doable for now while the island isn't as touristy as El Nido YET.

Twin Islands

My favorite Port Barton islands are in this video. These are the twin islands - Maxima and Exotic islands. They are twins because they are so near each other, the waters are shallow that you can literally walk between islands. There are resident dogs on these islands and they would usually cross one island to another safely!

We had our lunch in one of the islands and I explored the other island after lunch. The other island has a lot of sharp rocks and corals. It would be better if you bring your flip flops or aqua shoes with you. I left mine on the boat and was too far and time consuming to get so I went on barefoot. I was fine and just had to be careful not to step on anything too sharp.

The view on the other side was worth the painful rocky road! The waves were too strong on this side though so I mostly swam on the other twin island.

Starfish Island

This isn't really an island but more a sandbar, so it can disappear on high tide. Not a good place to get stuck in! There are star fish around the area, hence the name. We also went to an island with mangroves but I didn't have a footage in there.


Island hoppings aren't complete without snorkeling. There were just a few fish and just small ones but the corals were beautiful!

That was a pretty tiring but fun trip so I decided not to take another island hopping anymore and just roam around town the following day which I will show in my next video. Stay tuned!
