HOW TO TRAVEL

There are several options to get here and we are happy to help you find the best one.

How to plan your trip?

International flights are arriving in Manila every hour, but there is usually only a few options from Manila to Romblon per day. That is why we recommend looking at this part of your journey first. This includes making a decision on whether you want to travel mostly via airplane or ferry.
