How to Get to Ticao Island Resort in Masbate Province

Going to Ticao Island Resort by Commute:

From Manila, take a 12 hour bus going to Sorsogon City ( Aircon Bus Fare is Php 800 while Ordinary Fare is Php 600)  then take a 1 hour jeepney ride going to Bulan Port in Sorsogon where you can take a public ferry to San Jacinto in Masbate, approximately 1 hour travel time. Fare is Php 150 per passenger. Once you reach the port of San Jacinto take a habal-habal or single motorcycle being my favorite ride. The motorcycle ride cost me around Php 120 round trip service. Happy Trip Everyone - Bisayang Manlalakbay around the Philippines.

A Perfect Getaway of Ticao Island Resort in Masbate Province

If you really want to get away from the bustle & crowded situation of the metro. Explore the beach of Ticao Island Resort, where you can enjoy white sand beach, blue crystal water and calm waves. About 30 minutes away from the town of San Jacinto, Masbate. Yes, It's  definitely a lovely resort, friendly staff and relaxing ambiance in the west part of the Island. They have a 9 beachfront cabanas, nice long stretch of white sand and a modern restaurant. There are local villages next to the resort. I would say this lover resort even though small but it give the best hospitality to the customers & guests.  I also found this little island in front of the resort. Locals are very friendly, accommodating and be amazed by them.

Faces of Ticao Island in Masbate Province

It's a solitude in a beautiful part of Masbate Province. A good sites for diving, trekking, beach bumming and exploring too. Ticao Island Resort can feel you the depth of an ocean, nice coral reefs & manta ray close encounter. This is a lovely place to relax or unwind. The local village children will probably find you and you'll be enchanted by them. There's also a restaurant in the resort where you can order foods and drinks. I love the way all the staff tried to ensure every wish was fulfilled & food was great. 

Ticao Island: White Sand Beach of Masbate Province

The island of Ticao in Masbate has its own charm and fascinating undiscovered spots in the Province. This area of Ticao Beach Resort in San Jacinto, Masbate is one of my favorite spot in the island because of its unique beauty, simplicity of living and people are more helpful to the tourist. I have time to unwind, scroll around the long stretch of beach, hanging in a hammock under the coconut trees, chatting to locals and beach bumming with a perfect blue water. I traveled here alone and the place overall was absolutely wonderful & calm vacation. It's definitely not for those looking to party because of its solemnity of the place, very chilled, relaxed out quiet place and great for solo travelling or nor romantic trip with a partner. The cabanas are all right on the beach front and I would highly recommend the place especially for adventurer like me so dont miss to travel Ticao Island in San Jacinto, Masbate.  Also they offers diving at the world's best diving spot like Manta Ray Bowl site & nearby reefs. All of their guides are knowledgeable and experienced.  Best time to travel during March to May (summertime). Plan your next adventure & book flight in advance.
