HOW TO GET TO HUNDRED ISLANDS

From Manila, Victory Liner, Genesis Transport and 5Star Bus go directly to Alaminos. Travel time is 6 hours. From Alaminos Bus Terminal, take a tricycle to Lucap Wharf – the jump off for the Hundred Islands National Park.

MY PERSONAL BIAS

The Hundred Islands National Park is awesome but there are areas where garbage are all-over. Bring your own food too because rates here are shockingly expensive.
