Burias Island, Land Tour

You can reach Burias Island from Camarines Sur. It is an 8-hour bus ride from Manila and 2-hour boat ride from Pasacao port.

For accommodation, there is only 1 hotel in the town proper (Sunset View) with rates (for me is) quite high. But if you are a budget traveler (like me) you can always go to MSS Fuentes. There are also huts in Sombrero Island if you want to stay there overnight.

There are plenty of sights to see in the town proper; several ranches (so-called “Island of Ranches”), well-preserved ancestral houses, the “Balinsasayaw” house, home of more than 80,000 swiftlets and the St. Pascual Baylon Church, one of the oldest church in Masbate province.

Burias Island, Masbate

Masbate province is part of the Bicol Region. It has 3 major islands namely: Masbate Island, Ticao Island and Burias Island.

I heard about Burias Island and got interested to see the sights when I learned that it’s just a 2-hour boat ride from Pasacao, Camarines Sur. I scheduled the trip to this province last 2014 and 2016 both month of December, but did not materialize due to bad weather (not advisable because of rough sea most of the time). Thankfully, I was able to finally visit the province this year when Malacañang declared April 28 (summer season) as a non-working holiday in Metro Manila.

Here’s our budget and itinerary for this trip:

Another well-known and a much bigger cave is the Lahab Cave. But we did not dare visiting the cave anymore because of the 15-30mins trek before reaching the mouth of the cave.
