Explore Olango Island, Cebu for only 10 pesos per hour

6:00 PM

Are you sick and tired of the concrete jungle? Do you want to relax and see foliage of all types? Or bask in the sun with a good view of the sea? But, is your wallet hindering you from all these graces? If you're in Cebu, I got you fam!

A few minutes away from the resort island of Mactan, there is an underrated island that boasts both marine resources and diverse migratory birds. Luckily, you don't need to spend hours of travel. It would only take you 15 to 20 minutes to reach this destination.



How to Get to Olango Island?

From Cebu City
  • Ride a jeepney or taxi that would take you to SM City Cebu. 
  • Head straight to SM City Cebu's V-hire/ Van Terminal and look for the van that will take you to Mactan New Town. The fare is Php 35
  • Alternatively, take a van to Gaisano Mactan. The fare is Php 25. Then, ride a jeepney to Mactan New Town.
  • From Mactan New Town, walk towards the tricycle area. Inform the driver to take you to Angasil Port. The fare is Php 10
  • A passenger outrigger boat is available all day to take you to Olango Island for only Php 15.

Upon reaching Sta Rosa Port in Olango, there are a lot of tricyles that will take you to your destination. But since, we are only staying for a day. We will have to rent bicycles.
