Things to remember:
1. Public boat schedule is only until 4:00 PM.
Sadly, we missed the last boat trip by 10 minutes. And this 10 minutes left us with no choice but to go with a private boat instead which cost us Php 1,500 round-trip.
2. Contact the resort/hotel (only for private boats)
They can only accommodate you once you have contacted the place where you will be staying at (which is better so you don’t waste your money for the boat ride), so we called different resorts to inquire. We chose Joven’s Blue Sea Resort because it was the only one who had the banigs and pillows included on their tent rates.
3. No electricity after 8:00 PM. (in Joven’s Blue Sea Resort)
This was the case way back in October 2017. This differs from one resort to another.
4. Don’t forget Yema Cake for pasalubong!
I wish I had bought 10 boxes!!!
Hope this helps 🙂
