How to Get to Bantayan Island, Cebu
From Cebu, I took the jeepney in Metro Colon, to catch the bus in Northbus station for Hagnaya ( 132 pesos). It took me 3 hours to reach the place. Like of any ordinary skimpy buses in remote areas in the Philippines, this ordinary bus wasn’t that comfy for any tourists. So I am telling ahead of the time that you should be ready to face some other uncomforts just to reach this beautiful paradise here in the Philippines
Arrived in Hagnaya port, after asking the bus driver several times if we are close enough. 110 km traveled length all in all. Seemed to be the bus was the only bus which travels all the way from Hagnaya back to Cebu so , you need to jump off quickly before the passengers jump into the bus and you’ll get stucked inside.
Daily ferries to Bantayan Island ( 170 pesos) and a lot of tourists surprised me. The island is one of the well- known tourists’ island get away. Anyhow, it was only one hour, I boarded the ferry. The trip was about 3 hours.
While in Bantayan port, you can just walk to Sta Fe Poblacion or hire the trike for 20 pesos.
