This is the preferred transport if you want to have more spacious and better ride for Moalboal.
If you come from the Mactan Airport you need to take a taxi
(or any vehicle if available for you) to Cebu South Bus Terminal in Cebu
City. It will cost you around Php250.00 to the terminal.
It takes almost 3 hours to get to Moalboal via Ceres Bus (yellow big bus).
The rate should be between Php150-180, much less than a taxi from the airport to this station.
The view is nice since you will be taking the road by the seaside passing through towns and many sites.
You can hire a Taxi Cab for Moalboal Town if you want to ride a non-stop ride. However, you need to negotiate well with the driver (not with a porter) for your direction and rate. The normal price for a taxi ride is around Php3,000.
By V-Hire (Van)
You can take a van in various places in Cebu that goes to Moalboal. One of the places is the van terminal at SM City Cebu Department Store. You need to take a taxi or a bus from Mactan Island (if from the airport) to get to SM City Cebu, Cebu City.
But the better way is to request for a pickup service via your resort/dive shop especially when you have lots of luggage or you have a big group. The rate for this service is about Php3,000. The rate is almost similar to hiring a taxi.
If you took the bus from Cebu South Bus Terminal, then you need to take a shorter ride as you arrive in Moalboal Town—a tricycle ride to your resort, which is over Php50 for Panagsama Beach area.
To get around Moalboal, you can take a tricycle, which is about Php150 (or so) to White Beach (Basdaku Beach). Another ride is the “habal-habal”—a single motorbike that takes more riders and only best if you don’t have heavy luggage. This will cost you more than Php20.00.
