HOW TO GET FROM NAGA TO CARAMOAN
If you want to get from Naga to Caramoan there are few ways to do it. By bus, plane, van and boat. We will explain all of them with all the details for your next trip.
HOW TO GET FROM NAGA TO CARAMOAN BY BUS
It’s the easiest way from Naga City you have to go to the Bus Terminal located near SM Mall. It’s only one kilometer far from city center. You can go walking or by tricycle is only 8 PHP per person. The system of shared tricycles in Naga is so efficient.
There are daily buses going from 5 am to 3 pm from Naga to Caramoan. We took the bus around 8 am and the departure is every 1-2 hours. It depends on the season and the frequency of the buses. The bus takes 5 hours to reach Caramoan and it costs 260 PHP per person.
The road is really bad when you are getting close to Caramoan on the coast but the views are nice. You can get a jeepney to Goa from Naga and change to the bus going to Caramoan.
HOW TO GET FROM NAGA TO CARAMOAN BY VAN AND BOAT
In case there are no buses or you prefer going by van plus boat to reach Caramoan (it can be faster than the bus this way). You have to go to Naga Bus Terminal and get a van to Sabang Port. It takes 1 hour and a half and it costs 150 PHP per person.
Once in Sabang Port you have to take the boat going to Caramoan Guijalo Port. There are a few boats from 6 am to 11 am. The boat takes 2 hours and it costs 120 PHP. Make sure you take the van before 9 am from Naga Bus Terminal to make sure you get the last boat going to Caramoan. If you miss the boat you will have to hire a private boat for around 3000 PHP maximum 16 people.
Once in Guijalo Port in Caramoan, you will have to ride a tricycle to get to Caramoan town or Bikal port where you will start your island hopping. Prices for the tricycle for 30 minutes ride can be 100 PHP per person in a shared tricycle.
It depends on where you would prefer to stay. In the town there are more options for food and it’s close from the Bus Terminal in Caramoan. In Bikal Port you will stay right on the beach quite and calm ready for your island hopping next day!
