Dazzling Bantayan Island beach resorts

Traditional livelihood on Bantayan Island

Now, in addition to just being a vacation destination, Bantayan is also known to be a best producer of salted and dried fish (guinamos and buwad). 

The islands of Bantayan are considered Cebu’s fishing ground supporting the city with fresh and salted and sun-dried fish products. Bantayan also supplies fish products to other neighboring provinces and as far as Manila.

Aside from fishing and tourism, Bantayan also developed its poultry industry supplying fresh chicken eggs to Cebu City and nearby places in the province.

Finding Bantayan Island & its beaches

Don't worry because it is not so difficult to find and get to this fantastic island. You can almost take all sorts of transports to set foot on this island.

But, for some who are first timers in this province, you might need a little bit of patience in order to get there. Of course, you'll certainly enjoy while on your way.

So, here are the transports you can choose from or need to take...

Flying. There is a Bantayan Airport but, unfortunately, there’s no regular flight schedule due to some reasons. However, you can arrange a charter small private aircraft from Mactan-Cebu International Airport (Terminal 2) or Mactan-Cebu Domestic Airport (Terminal 1).

Bus and Ferry. This is the most common mode of transport when traveling to Bantayan. Take Ceres Bus from the North Bus Terminal (near SM City Cebu Shopping Mall) to Hagnaya Wharf in San Remigio. From this wharf, a ferry will bring you to Bantayan in an hour and fifteen minutes.

There is another ferry operation that serves Cadiz City (Negros Occidental) and Bantayan municipal wharf. That means you don't have to fly to Mactan Cebu Airport or take a boat from anywhere.

No ferry from Cebu City to Bantayan Island, so far, is available.
