For first timers, we always find asking ourselves, how to get to Camotes Island? Well, this for me is the easiest route to take.

First, take your stop at SM Cebu City, Philippines then take a jeepney that goes straight to Danao City or you can take a taxi to the North, Terminal Station and from there, take a north bus going to Danao City. There are also Vans-for-hire, also called “V-hire”, ready in the SM terminal located just beside the main entrance of the mall.

Alight at the Danao City Port and take the Ferry to Camotes, Island.
