Getting to Borawan

Borawan Beach is found in Pagbilao’s Chica Island. Although under the jurisdiction of the town of Pagbilao in Quezon, the port nearest to it can be found in the town of Padre Burgos.

To get to Borawan from Manila:

Get on the bus to Lucena City in Quezon. The most recommended are DLTB Bus Company and JAC Liner. Both bus companies have terminals in Cubao and Buendia. Estimated travel time is 3 hours and 30 minutes.


The drop off point for Lucena-bound buses is the Lucena Grand Central Terminal. This is the main hub for transportation within the province of Quezon and to nearby areas such as Laguna and Batangas.

You will ride a mini-bus bound for Unisan. Estimated travel time is 1 hour.


You should then ask the barker that you’d like to go to Padre Burgos where the boats to Borawan are.

The bus will stop at the Padre Burgos town proper. Here you will ride a tricycle to Basiao Port. Most locals know that it’s where tourists flock to.


There will be boats waiting for you at the port. But it is better if you already have a contact. We hired the services of Crisjay (+639055605947). Estimated travel time is 15 minutes.

Then, soon enough, you’ll have your first look of Borawan.
