How do I get to Boracay?
When coming from Manila, to get to Bora, you may choose to travel by air, by sea, or even by land. There are flights daily going to two destinations in Aklan Province, Caticlan and Kalibo. The fastest and easiest route would be to fly to Caticlan, which is about an hour plane ride from Manila. From Caticlan, you can ride a ferry boat going to the island. When choosing Kalibo, you can fly Manila-to-Kalibo, get a bus ride to Caticlan, which is about an hour and half bus ride that would allow you to enjoy countryside sceneries of rice fields, hills, and nipa huts. Once you arrive in Caticlan, you may then proceed to ride a ferry boat going to Boracay Island. Hourly trips are available and options vary from small to large ferries.
If you choose to travel by sea, you can opt to ride in Supper Ferries and ships that traverse through Visayas, trips are available from almost any point of origin in the Philippines. This route may take several days though depending on your point of origin. Once you dock in either Kalibo or Caticlan, you may then choose a ferry boat to take you to the island.
There are also commuter buses available that travel from Manila to Batangas, the Ro-Ro buses, which are then loaded in ships that cruise the waters of Visayas and will bring you to Kalibo.
Other than the options above, you may also choose to travel in style by chartering a private plane straight to Caticlan and then via ferry boat to the island.
