San Andres, Quezon Province
May 30-31 2015
My huling hirit sa tag init -Alibijaban is located at the tip of Quezon.
The group met at Mcdo Greenfield, we hired 3 vans to accommodate 30 passenger, and left at around 12mid. We arrived at San Andres port (the jump-off point to Alibijaban) at around 7am. It took us 7-8 hours. Upon arriving at San Andres port, we ate our breakfast in one of the eatery located at San Andres Market.
The island is just around 15 minutes away from the port. The waves are calm and water is crystal clear.
We stayed at Kapitana’s place, our stay is free because we conducted an outreach program. They usually collect 100php for environmental or entrance fee, so you can use the CR as well.
Use of utility water costs ₱10 per 4-gallon container. The water source is deep well and located way far inward,yah we tried that,just bring flash lights. so if you consider the effort in fetching the water, ₱10 is a very humble fee.They also have a mini sari-sari store where you can buy mineral water, coffee,etc.
A 2-way boat trip to the island will cost you ₱1,500. The boat can carry 4-10 persons. If you are a smaller group, contact Kuya Randy in advance and try to ask for a discount. But if you are lucky, and arrived early, you can ride in a boat with the locals going back to the island for only 50php.Kuya Randy ask only for a gasoline when you go for an island tour but I suggest you to, at least, shell out a bit.
