Take an air-conditioned bus going straight to Batangas Pier (shown in photo above) via CALABARZON Expressway. Travel time to Batangas pier is about 2 hours and the fare is less than 200 pesos.
Upon arriving at Batangas Pier, go to Terminal 3 ( Outrigger Ferries). If you are coming directly to Lalaguna Villas, you will want to catch a ferry going to Sabang, which is a 10-minute walk from our resort.
The major passenger ferries coming to Sabang, Puerto Galera and White Beach are: FSL or Father and Son Shipping Lines and MSL or Minolo Shipping Lines.
The maximum capacity of an outrigger ferry is from 60 up to 120 passengers. The ticket costs 250 to 280 pesos, one-way. You will also need to pay an Environmental Tax (non-residents only) of 50 pesos, and a terminal fee of 30 pesos. Just ask the person at the ticket counter to point out the pay booths for those additional costs.
The first ferry trip to Puerto Galera is 7:30 am during the normal season and every hour thereafter, one or 2 ferries depart until 4:30 pm which is usually the last trip to Puerto Galera.
There are three landing sites. You will go to the Sabang Landing Site. If you happen to disembark at the wrong pier or landing site (Puerto Galera Proper (Muelle), Balatero, White Beach), there are tricycles that you can hire to bring you to the Sabang Pier. When you arrive in Sabang we can pick you up at the main pier in our speedboat, just call or text us first.
If you choose to walk, go to the pier, face the ocean, then walk down the Beach to your left (West). You will pass Captain Gregg’s, The Big Apple, keep walking to the Viewpoint and Barrell Bar on the Point, then past El Galleon, Blue Ribbon, Aura and AB Wonderdive. We are straight ahead 30 meters past AB Wonderdive on Small Lalaguna Beach.
