I found Besaga's on the beachfront while I was relaxing and taking in the morning. My friend and I decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was very beautiful and the breakfast was amazing! We had 2 pancakes with eggs, bacon, ham, homemade Hungarian sausage, and potatoes. The coffee was not as good, but...

I had a client looking for a property in Port Barton and we eat here. Pancake is love. 😊 They serve pancake with one shot of vodka. As a local of Port Barton, I grew up in the area and I know the place so well. Now, I can better understand why tourist like the place

My fiancé had discovered this gem last year whilst travelling on his own so we decided to go back together; I wasn't disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. The food was incredible due to the fact that the owners are ex-chefs from Manilla. The menu is extensive and everything is delicious. It was...

We stayed here for 7 nights in a garden hut and had the most wonderful, relaxing time. The hut was clean and spacious with a nice veranda to sit outdoors. Everyone working at Besanga was so kind and friendly. Our room was cleaned after the 3rd day and we had new bedding and towels, which was lovely. The food at...

We went to Besaga for breakfast and it was amazing!! Nice spot with beach view, delicious food and lovely staff - Nutella banana pancakes must try, but only if you're really hungry ;) the shakshuka was really tasty too! They also serve fresh ginger tea with honey and calamansi which I loved. Feeling a bit sorry that we didn't find...

Right on the part of the beach which is much wider and cleaner than the rest of Port Barton. They have really made an effort to fit in with nature and the surroundings. Rooms are basic (as is most accommodation in Port Barton), but the 12 hours electricity helps with the warm nights. Staff are helpful and breakfasts are great.

Thank you for writing! Just to let you know the 700php rate for the tour is the island hopping rate approved by the law, the others offering less than that is illegal and whoever tolerates and supports them will be fined with a huge amount of money. And most of them are unregistered boats and captains who didn't go under...
