Manila to Tacloban/ Cebu to Tacloban by Air

From Manila, book a flight to Tacloban on any of these airlines: Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, AirPhil Express and Zest Air.

The Manila-Tacloban flight will take a little over one hour and once in Tacloban, you have several options to get to Biliran.

Hire a van at the airport to take you directly to Biliran or Agta Beach Resort for example
Ride a jeep or taxi to the van terminal and get on the van to Naval – Best Deal!
If you get the Chance, fly straight to Cebu and book a flight to Tacloban or take a SuperCat to Ormoc (read on for more details).

Travel Tips

Options 1 can cost up to Php 3,000 to rent an entire van, while Option 2 will cost you less than Php 400 per person. If you’re on a budget, Option 2 is the way to go.
The Tacloban to Naval trip takes approximately 2.5 hours, while the Naval-Talahid leg takes about 30 minutes.
The ride is generally pleasant and you’ll get your fill of rice paddies and mountains in no time.
If flying in from Cebu, I suggest taking a SuperCat to Ormoc rather than flying in to Tacloban. This costs less and cuts your land trip by 30-45 minutes.
Cebu to Ormoc

The Cebu-Ormoc SuperCat is the most convenient option with well-maintained cabins and 2 hour travel time.

Fly in straight to Cebu and find your way to the SuperCat terminal. There are three trips daily between Cebu-Ormoc and vice versa. Please click here for the schedule and here for the fare matrix.

From Ormoc, head to the van terminal and take a van to Naval. Once in Naval, ride a bus to Kawayan and get off right at the top of the Agta Beach Resort driveway.

There are also ferry trips between Cebu and Ormoc. Please click here for the shipping companies and their schedules.

Cebu to Naval by overnight ferry

An overnight ferry (about 8 hours) also plies the Cebu to Naval route. The accommodations are very rustic and basic though and trips are prone to being cancelled during typhoon season. But on the flipside, you get to skip the land trip.
