Getting Around
Boat
There are three boat stations along White Beach.Boat stations have no piers. Boat stations on the east coast may be used depending on wind direction.There is a Pier in Manoc-Manoc but it doesn't seem to be in use.
Boats are mostly bancas and only transportation for going to small islands off Boracay and inaccessible beaches such as Balinhai. Chartering banca costs approx. P200 for an hour per person, P500 for 3 hours and P800 for 6 hours.Public use banca from Caticlan to Boracay costs P14 for a local resident and P16 for a tourist.(as of Feb.26,1999)
