Traveling to Sibale Island is no fun but the end result is priceless. Allow a day of travel from the City of Manila to Sibale which includes stops at various locations plus unexpected circumstances that may occur on the way.
Our trip to the island starts in a designated bus depot in Manila..
The bus normally starts early in the morning and passes through the various cities on the way with Batangas City pier as the final destination.
Other option from Manila is to travel by private car. When it reaches Batangas City pier cars and people are loaded in a Ferry Boat.
From Batangas City the Ferry Boat crosses the channel to the City of Calapan, Mindoro Oriental.
Cars are driven out of the Ferry and travels inland to the town of Pinamalayan, for almost two hours. Others will take a bus or rent a private transportation to Pinamalayan, Oriental Mindoro, which is located on the other side of Mindoro Island.
Upon reaching Pinamalayan, those who have private cars parked them in relatives or friends place. Those who took the bus or rented car proceed to the waiting pump boat.
From the town of Pinamalayan, pump boat is the current means of transportation. During travel passengers enjoy the view of vast sea and Sibale Island. The pump boat enters Concepcion Bay and dock on the pier where passengers disembarked.
