Based on certain parameters and models, Cluster 1 is expected to become fully developed in 10 to 15 years once San Vicente Palawan Airport becomes fully operational.
Although Port Barton is the island hopping center of San Vicente and currently have the most number of lodging houses. tourist inns and resorts, it was identified to belong to Cluster 2.
The main cove of Port Barton, in the mainland Palawan, is already occupied by local resort owners mostly offering budget accommodations. Most land owners of beach front properties do not currently have plans of giving up their business and selling their properties to investors who can make bigger and world class developments. With the difficulty of getting a prime spot on the main cove of Port Barton by big players in hotel and resort development in the country, plus other factors considered, Port Barton was identified as Cluster 2.
Also, Port Barton is roughly 45 minutes away, by motorized boat, from Poblacion. There is already a road that goes directly from the Airport to Port Barton but it still needs to be concreted. Once the rough road going to Port Barton gets cemented, travel time may be reduced to only 20 to 30 minutes by shuttle van. A more convenient route, by land travel, to Port Barton may take an hour and a half (1.5 hours) via Roxas.
Many properties in Port Barton are also considered timberland. Timberland are properties of the government and therefore cannot be sold to investors or real estate developers. These are untitled properties that were NOT released yet. Untitled properties that are NOT classified as “released” cannot be acquired by sale nor developed. Other than those titled properties, only those untitled properties classified as “released” (technically called Alienable & Disposable) can be acquired by sale and at the same time developed by land owners. Untitled properties classified as “released” are not classified as timber land and therefore can also be applied for titling.
