This resort is now called Esmeralda Villa. You can reach it by boat from Port Barton or via a bumpy road. Take the boat if you can. This place has a few large bungalows, but caters mainly to day trippers who come and go throughout the day. They do not stay overnight though. Check-in went smoothly and the accommodation is clean with lots of light, plugs, comfortable beds and a good size bathroom. No safe in room, no wifi, no water. There is a/c, but you might as well open the windows (there are screens) to enjoy the breeze. Rooms were not cleaned during our two night stay, so use the towels with care. No electricity between midnight and 17:30, which also means no hot water. If you want to take a warm shower, do it at night. In general quiet, even if the resident dogs made their presence known and bats dropped all kinds of stuff on the thin roof, which woke us up a couple of times. The grounds are very well kept, with leaves swept every morning. There is a smoking section, however smoking seems to happen everywhere. Pre-order your food. Best choice for breakfast was the French toast. Coffee is the three in one kind, like in many other countries in Asia. Not everything on the menu is available all the time, so check. Same goes for drinks. The pizza was good with lots of cheese and a thin crust. You can book excursions to go island hopping, but we decided to take it easy. Good swimming from the beach. A few hammocks are available. Very pleasant surprise. If you can live off the grid for a few days, this is the place to go.

This is simply stunning, a beautiful place. The food was delicious and the staff super friendly. If you can, stay a couple of days and just soak up the sun and the chilled atmosphere. A place to really relax

We had this wonderful white sand beach all to ourselves in the morning before the boats arrive from Port Barton. The water is nice to swim in and use of the facilities (including hammocks) is included in the PHP 50 entrance/user fee.

We chose to have a lazy day here and didn't regret it, we soaked up the sun, had a swim and explored the beach. There is a rest bar here which was little expensive but we only had drinks.
There is a 50php pp charge arrival but this allows you to use the toilets/ showers on the islands so in my opinion was well worth it.

Yeah, you know that place you see in postcards and those travel blogs. Turqouise waters, fine and crystal clear sand not a plastc bottle or cigarette bud in sight?
This is what it looks like.
150php single trip (300 return) from port barton and it takes 10 mins to cross into the neighbouring cove.
1 restaurant on the beach and some small homestay huts too.

Hubby and I hiked for an hour from Barton to reach the beautiful White Beach. It was well worth the hike. The beach sand was soft and a joy to walk on. The hammocks weren't the most comfortable, but we managed to doze off in them. It was the perfect place to spend a lazy day. The food from the resort was surprisingly good.

Since there's no island hopping activity due to gale warning, we decided to go to white beach for 2days. We've loved this amazing beach resort, it's very serene. The sea is calm, a nice place to swim. Mobile and data signal are strong. There are a lot of hammock to rest.

I hiked over from Port Barton and took a boat back (150P) I loved hanging out in the hammocks at White Beach. It is an hour walk from Port Barton and 5 minutes by boat, so there are fewer people. You can grab a private spot on the beach or lay back in a hammock. Saw massive butterflies and dragon flies on the walk - felt like I was in Disney Land.
