    Rowing your way to the island

    There is only one way to get to Limasawa - take the motorized boat or locally referred to as "bangkang de motor". Made from wood, both sides have outriggers made of bamboo. Depending on the size, a boat can accommodate 3 to 5 persons plus the "driver". Wooden planks are placed horizontally to serve as seats.

    From the Padre Burgos wharf, the island is one hour boat ride on smooth waters. The trip takes longer when the water is rough. Or, totally cancelled when there is an impending storm.

    Trips are also limited and do not follow a specific schedule. Hence, it would be advisable to rent the boat, just like we did, so you'll have it at your disposal.

Limasawa Island What to Pack

    It's not a picnic

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Travelling on open sea under the glare of the sun is not fun. Wear a hat to cover your face, a long-sleeved shirt to cover your arms, and jeans to cover your legs.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Don't leave without your sun block, otherwise, you'll suffer later.

    Photo Equipment: Place your valuables, like camera, in a plastic to prevent them from getting wet.
