HOW TO GET TO ANILAO FROM MANILA

Anilao is an accessible destination, whether you go by public or private transport. It is what makes it an appealing destination for those coming from Manila or nearby cities. You have plenty of options on what to do and where to go to after. You can go snorkeling, diving, hiking or lazing on the beach, depending on your interests. Many buses and jeeps will take you to your chosen destination in Anilao.

If you’ll use public transportation to get to Anilao, follow these steps:



1. Board a bus bound for Batangas Grand Terminal.

Buses depart from LRT-Buendia and Taft in Pasay, and EDSA-Kamias and Cubao in Quezon City.
Leave as early as possible to avoid the traffic.

If you ride a CALABARZON bus, your trip will be shorter because it will skip several cities and towns like Tanauan and Lipa. This route takes about two hours; otherwise, the travel time is around three hours. The fare is from P120 to P180 depending on where you came from and the route.

As much as possible avoid boarding the buses bound for Batangas City via Lipa; this route may take longer because of traffic and the stops the bus may take.

2. Board a jeep bound for Anilao.

Alight at the last stop, the Anilao Port. This takes around 40 minutes and costs P37. You can go to the nearby Tourism Office, if you have any travel related questions.

3. Charter a tricycle to your accommodation.

The fare is around P60 to P100 depending on the driver and your negotiating skills. The trip takes about 10 minutes (more or less).

The whole trip can take up to four hours depending on traffic, stops the bus and jeep takes, and other factors.

Maximize your time by leaving as early as possible so you don’t waste half a day on the road, especially for just a weekend escape.
