Looks like you need a permit to transport from the local government.

Yes, a permit to bring in a motorized vehicle in the island is need as they are limiting the vehicle inside the island to those who live there. It's not a big island too.

I suggest to just rent a motorcyle inside the island.

Been playing around with maps and stuff. Apart from the Roadguide.ph map you can download to your Garmin and maybe your smartphone, OsmAnd for Android seems pretty fast and has quite decent maps the few places I've checked.

Still worth checking all three sources (Google maps, Roadguide and Osm) when planning a route off the main highways.

Sent from my Android chinaphone, please excuse the spelling

I've never been to Boracay but I have traveled across Negros to Pinay ...

The port area in Bacolod is just behind Robinson Mall on the main drag though town ... Below is a listing of port times and there are plenty and this was low cost the last time I was there a yr ago ...

You land at Dumangas on Pinay which is about ~24 CLKS north of Iloilo City proper ..

When you land at Dumangas, you have 2 maybe 3 possible routes to take to the north western tip of the island to catch a rider over to Boracay or that other island you mention ...

Pinay is divided by a large mountain range that runs north up the west coast line ... Antique province runs up the western coast line over the mountain range ...

1) Head south \ south west after landing towards Iloilo City and pass this mountain range on the south side and then head up the coast line in Antique ... This is the longer route but has some very good beach access and Antique has miles and miles of white sand ..

2) Head west \ north west and head towards Kalibo on the northern shore ... Just go north and you will hit the north shore some how ..Many small roads over there ... After hitting the north shore, go west to find a boat over to Boracay ...

3) This route may or may not be open yet AND it is know for NPA in the remote mountain area of this route ... San Remigio-Leon Road ... This road cuts across the lower southern part of the mountain range and hits the west coast making it much shorter to the coast ... 2 yrs ago it was not finished but it just was an election yr and maybe it is finished now ... I'd stop by the BRGY Hall in Leon and ask what the status was out there before pushing across ...


RORO schedule --


This will be about the 1st sign you see leaving the port after landing on Pinay

I'd take any route except for the direct route through the middle of the island. That road is the main transportation hub from north to south, so youll have to deal with busses, minibuses and all sorts of other traffic. I say go with one of the costal routs, antique. But this time of year that side is exposed to the weather and the storms come from the west, so maybe the eastern side would be more weather friendly. We're getting hammered here in Boracay with strong winds and rain. Good fun for water sports, but wouldn't want to be on a bike.

The San Remigo-Leon road is open?

Its just a easy < 1 day ride either way and if you cut across, it would really be short ... I never saw much traffic anywhere there except in Iloilo City ... It easy to go north of that place and avoid it ...

There is a guy who gives tours over there and has smaller bikes for renting, 140cc Kawi ... I can't find his web site but or email now ...

His rides looked ~pretty technical and there is a huge, world class MX track over there also ... Not sure what a 140cc bike will do on a big track ..

Should be some of the smaller bikes over there somewhere also ...

Good luck ... I'll send another message out if I find his site on the web

Wicked Hilantagaan and Bantayan Islands



We can see Hilantagaan Island from our home so the gardener organised a pump boat . Cost 30p each including our bikes to go there. We also got fresh Blue Fin Tuna to take home. The kids there don't get to see many visitors or white men so when we went swimming had a big audience.



Last weekend was Palawod Festival at Bantayan Town



Kabangbang Elementary School won 1st Prize



I hired a Yamaha YBR and went to the Nature Park , even had 2 x swim instructors .

Thanks for all the amazing pics, Toddy. Your sweetheart is quite maganda! I miss the Philippines so much and have to visit Bantayan. Won't be there before November, though.
