Don’t worry if you don’t have a license because you can rent and drive a motorbike without a driver’s license. This is allowed by the local government to boost tourism and make it a lot easier for no-license drivers to explore the island.
Bantayan Island has three municipalities and towns: Santa Fe, Mardridejos, and Bantayan Municipalities. Of course, you can stay all the time at Kota’s perimeter and enjoy everything it offers. But you may also go out and see the long and wide shorelines nearby or farther if you do like biking, hiking or exploring with a rented motorbike.
In Santa Fe…
You can do snorkeling at the Marine Sanctuaries, enjoy island hopping, cave swimming at Eden Resort, bar hopping, fishing or simply collecting some seashells.

At Bantayan Town (Proper) you can visit the town center and do banking services, check out local stores, stroll the town park, and visit the old church build during the Spanish period – the Saint Peter & Paul Cathedral. Being a fishing area, you can buy fresh seafood or dried fish, such as ‘Danggit’ at the Fish Market or try the traditional glutinous rice called “Puto Maya.”
If you explore a little bit further, you can get to Madridejos Municipality and observe the locals and their way of living – fishing, farming, handicrafts, poultry, etc. At this town, you can still see the ‘Kota’ or fort that was built in the 1790s that were used for watching out harassment by the Moros of the people in the area.
Also, if you think of exploring other beautiful islands with more white beaches, you can register or hire a boat for island hopping. For example, you can join a group that travels to the famous Virgin Island nearby for half a day or so.
I rented a motorbike for only half a day – it was my most unforgettable experiences among the lovely places I visited in Cebu Province – totally amazing!
