How to go from Manila to Boracay

Coming from outside the Philippines? First, you have to take a flight to Manila – Ninoy Aquino International Airport, and take a local flight from Manila to Kalibo, Aklan Airport or Caticlan Airport.

Here’s how going to Boracay by plane from Manila goes, you have two options:

1) Manila to Kalibo – 45 minutes plane ride plus 1 hour and 30 minutes car ride and a 10 minute boat ride to Boracay Island.
2) Manila to Caticlan – 45 minutes plane ride plus 10 minutes land ride and a 10 minute boat ride to Boracay Island.

For option 1, you can take a 45 minute flight from Manila to Kalibo Airport (P 4000 to P 7000 roundtrip) then you have to travel from Kalibo Airport for one hour and thirty minutes by taking a bus to Caticlan (P 200 per person) or rent a van exclusively for you or your company -who ever else with you as long as you fit comfortably for P 1, 500 one way trip. Vans and Buses are readily available upon arrival at the Airport whenever there are incoming flights.

For option 2, you can take a 45 minute flight from Manila to Caticlan Airport (nearer to Boracay Island.) Caticlan is just a few minutes to Caticlan Jetty Port.

There are several carriers servicing to Kalibo like Philippine Airlines or Cebu Pacific.

There are more carriers servicing flights direct to Caticlan like SeaAir, Cebu Pacific, Asian Spirit and AirPhilippines among others.

Online bookings are normally available.

When you get to Caticlan Jetty Port, you have to take a 10 minute Ferry Boar Ride to Boracay Jetty Port (Cagban) costs P 19.50. There is a P 50 terminal and environmental fee per person that you have to pay going to the Island and upon Departing.

When you get to Boracay Port, you can take a Tricycle or a Multicab (small jeepney) that you can rent for P 250.00 just for you.

Just tell the driver where your resort is and they will take you to the nearest stop along the main road. From the Main road to the resort is usually a short five (5) minute walk to your resort. Vehicles are not usually permitted to go the beach front area, except for those with access roads to their resorts.

Btw, Porter Fee from Caticlan to the Boat is different from the porter fee from the Boat down to Boracay Island port. Normally it costs P 50.00 per luggage. So if you have 1 big bag, have 2 pcs. of P 50 bills handy.
The above is the way to get to a resort if you are not traveling on package tours. Some resorts have greeters who can meet you at the airport and take you all the way to your resort as part of the Package.

Also, some resorts charge separately for Airport Pick ups which ranges from P 1000 and up inclusive of Bus Ride (from kalibo) or van ride from Caticlan Airport to the Jetty port, porter fee, boat ride, terminal fee and multicab or resort van (aircon) ride to the resort.

From the main road, it’s about a 5 minute walk to the White Beach. White Long Beach of 4 kms. stretch of fine powdery sand and clear blue waters beach.

Boracay Island awaits your coming. Welcome! Mabuhay!
