No Flights Needed: Travel To 5 PH Beaches Accessible Via RORO

Sometimes, the journey is better than the destination. The long, monotonous travel hours on land and water are the best times to get to know yourself better or relish sweet times with your buddies and cement a life-long friendship.

We found different ways to entertain ourselves during the long journey: rant together about the hardships of switching from one public transportation, laugh aloud about some inane thing that caught our fancy, and share one’s deepest darkest secret. After all, you have all the time in the world to get to know each other or get to know yourself and what you are capable of in a deeper level.

Finally arriving at our final destination is made sweeter after all the hardships we underwent to get here.Taking the long route maybe arduous but it pays off, one way or another, as the journey gives a sense of joy, pride, and accomplishment. Test your patience and travel to 5 remote islands in the country via RORO:

Apo Island, Mindoro

Journey: Manila → Batangas Port → Sablayan

Island to island, enjoy one of the richest marine biodiversity in the Philippines! From turtles to dolphins, to sharks, you can be with these amazing creatures up close.

Kalanggaman Island, Leyte

Satisfied with Cebu’s stunning destinations? Fill your soul with more adventure! Head straight to Palompon. Leyte’s pristine Kalanggaman island will overflow you with so much delight.

White Island, Camiguin 

Journey: Cagayan De Oro City → Agora Terminal → Balingoan Port → Camiguin

How can a minuscule island be this beautiful? Better if you have it all to yourself!

Talipasak Beach, Romblon

Journey: Manila → Batangas Port → Sibuyan

A remote island away from tourists. Romblon may not be the typical go-to destination of most people. However, this may be a good thing. Be pleased with your alone time by the beach.
