Getting to Gigantes Island From Kalibo

    Kalibo International Airport is an alternative jumping-off point for your trip to the island of Gigantes. It’s an international airport and offers more flight options that are less expensive.

    You can fly direct to the Kalibo International Airport from Manila, Clark, or Cebu if you’re coming from those cities. If you are flying in from the United States, Japan, China, India, Canada, South Korea, Turkey, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Australia, or Germany, you also have the option of taking a flight to Kalibo, Aklan through Manila.

    Chartering a private van is the most convenient in getting to Islas de Gigantes from Kalibo. If you do not want to charter a van that travels directly to Carles, you should take a ride to the van terminal that is headed to Roxas. However, it does require transfers of some kind if you are heading to Gigantes Island. Exactly how it works is as follows:

    • From Kalibo, take a bus or a van to Roxas City in the province of Capiz.
    • Before arriving at the domestic airport in Roxas City, get off at the Lawaan Ceres Transport Terminal. It is the last stop before the airport.
    • Then, at the Roxas Integrated Bus Terminal, ride a bus or van bound for Carles or Estancia. Take the bus that is heading to Estancia and get off at Balasan. From Balasan, you can take a tricycle to get to Carles (the municipality where Gigantes Island is).

    Please see our Travel Guide on How to Get From Roxas City to Gigantes Islands for more details.

    Make sure you remember to ask the driver of the tricycle to let you off at the Port of Bancal so that you won’t miss your boat!

    After arriving at the Port of Bancal in the town of Carles, please pay the Environment Fee. Then the next step in your journey to Gigantes Island will be to board an outrigger boat, which the residents of Carles refer to as a “Banca.” It will take you one and a half hours to get there.

    Discover mysterious caverns on Gigantes Island. It is home to a number of caves, many of which are hidden from view by steep cliffs and rock formations. A good number of them, such as Pawikan Cave, feature spacious chambers for you to explore!
