The easy way is to telephone us in advance, and we will send our 60-foot pump boat „Orion“ to collect you from Iloilo City. Our Pickup point is either Port San Pedro, or the junction of Arroyo and Muelle Loney Streets, depending on weather and tide conditions travel time is one hour.
In case you want to dare on your own, you can hire a pump boat from Ortiz or Parola. This will cost you a little more.
Alternatively, you can also get a banca from Puyo Wharf in Nuevo Valencia or from Alubihud Beach, both very close to Baras. The trip takes about 15 minutes.
Have no direct access by road, but adventurous travellers can take a jeepney from Jordan to San Miguel, and then a tricycle from there down the road to Lawi.
Ask the driver to drop you off at Baringut crossing. A 15 minute walk on a rough track along the creek will take you to Sitio Baringut. There, you can hire a small boat complete with small boy to paddle you the last 600 metres to Baras Beach.
We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls. Anais Nin
Desserts Food, Philippine Cuisine
As a tropical oriental country it should come as no surprise there are many treats made from rice and coconuts. One often seen dessert is bibingka, a hot rice cake optionally topped with a pat of butter, slices of kesong puti (white cheese), itlog na maalat (salted duck eggs), and sometimes grated coconut. There are also glutinous rice sweets called biko made with sugar, butter, and coconut milk.
