Cuyo Island Things to Do

  • AN ENGINEERING MARVEL---THE OLD CUYO...

    A kilometer or two east of Cuyo you will come to the old pier which is just a stone walkway going out 500 meters or so in the sea. Very few people will come here but we sometimes walked to the end and enjoyed a swim in the sea. Unfortunately it is only around 4 or 5 feet deep but it is sandy and safe. This old port from the Spanish period was used...

Cuyo Island Warnings and Dangers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We booked our boat ticket for the trip to Cuyo from Puerto Princesa but because of big waves in the Amihan season the Molagrosa Shipping Line telephoned us 2 hours before the boat was due to leave and informed us that the coastguard would not lt the boat leave port because of the sea conditions. So if you are on a tight schedule and in the windy season think twice about your travel plans.

    Below are the current ticket fares (Jan 2015)
