Bantayan Island Itinerary & Guide To Santa Fe Town
When travelling around the Philippines, it’s so hard to decide which islands to visit and explore. There are over 7600 of them and they’re still counting! Madness! Many of the easier to get to islands are getting crowded with tourists and development is spoiling the beauty. We experienced this first hand in popular areas like Boracay and Bohol. But there are islands, not too far from the well-trodden path, that aren’t visited by too many tourists. These islands can allow for an untouched Philippine paradise experience. Bantayan Island is one of these destinations.
The island has three main towns; Bantayan, Madridejos and Santa Fe, but Santa Fe is the only town with tourist amenities such as accommodation, restaurants and nice beaches. For this reason, add staying in Santa Fe to your Bantayan Island itinerary. Santa Fe is incredibly convenient as the ferry from Hagnaya pulls into the town’s pier. From the Santa Fe pier, it’ll be a quick tricycle ride or walk to your accommodation.

We booked our room at Payag ni JK, maganda kasi beach front siya and
Comfy naman yong room kasi tutulugan mo nmn lng sya eh the whole day wala ka naman mag iikot ka so reasonable naman ang price na nakuha namin.
Kung gusto nyo maglibot sa Sta. Fe you can rent a bike for P150.00 a day or if you know how to ride a motorbike you can rent it for P300.00 a day plus gasoline.
Eto na mga bess let the adventure begin! By the way nga pala, we are not really familiar of the place nag GPS lang kmi and tanong tanong. Indi ka naman mawawala as long as you follow directions.
ðŸŒ´ Indi lang sa Bacolod may Ruins bess meron din sa Bantayan Island kaso nga lang indi sya the same sa aura it's just alll haligi.
ðŸŒ´I can't believe I was able to be and get pictures at the same place where the Camp Sawi movie was taken! My gosh besh I believe naka panood ka noon? Kung single ka ehh di makakarelate ka. But kmi relate na relate kmi!
