Reaching Moalboal from Cebu City center is not quite easy despite the number of options available. It is located 92 km southwest of Cebu City. There are a lot of reasons for visiting Moalboal. To begin with, it showcases the lovely white beach. It is also a place where you can get some of the best dishes and do other water adventures.
There is a bus going to Moalboal from Cebu which is located at the South Bus Terminal. The travel time is about two and a half hours. From the bus stop, you still need to take a tricycle, a local form of transportation, which will bring you to your destination. There are also no more buses beyond 8pm.
Another option is to take a taxi. This might cost almost 3,000 pesos for one way, but it would bring you straight to the beach.
If you are to wait for a bus that is cheap but quite uncomfortable or a taxi that costs a lot for a one-way trip, you would rather opt for Cebu to Moalboal van hire. This makes it a lot easier for you to not just reach Moalboal, but also travel around the area if there are other locations that you wish to visit.
The good thing about a van hire is that it can accommodate a lot of people. For taxis, the maximum number of passengers is just 4. You won’t even have enough space for your luggage. With a van, even if there are more than 10 passengers, it is just fine. You also have an area for your luggage to fit in.
The van will be with you throughout the trip. The amount depends on the number of days you wish to use the van and if you are hiring a driver with the vehicle (which is a better choice).
Make reservations now
If you are traveling to Moalboal during peak seasons, you can expect difficulty in moving from one place to another. Even private van reservations could be a challenge. Therefore, if you know when exactly you are heading there, it is best to make reservations now. The amount could also be cheaper if you are making advance booking. Sites like Limoscanner can help you in choosing the right van to rent. The Nissan Urvan NV350, Toyota Grandia Van and Toyota Innova Van are great choices.
Stick with van rental companies that have a proven name in the industry. You should also make sure that they were given positive reviews by passengers who have used the services before.
Use van for other places
If you are planning to travel in other places in the Philippines, you would rather have private vans than use public transportation. For areas around Cebu, the Commuter Van and Toyota GL Grandia Van are good options. The country does not necessarily have the best and most organized transportation system. Therefore, it is best for you to just use a private van with a driver. Don’t forget to enjoy the trip once you are already there. This could be a once in a lifetime experience.
