If you’re looking for a more daring escapade, I strongly recommend the Babuyan island for you to explore and discover. The Babuyan Islands are as remote as you think and simply getting there is an extreme adventure in itself. One must be strong enough to conquer the trip to the northern-most point of Luzon and by braving the 5-7 hour roller-coaster boat rides on very rough Pacific Ocean seas.
HOW TO GET TO CALAYAN ISLAND:
From Manila, hop on a bus for about 14 hours land travel to Claveria or Sta. Ana or Aparri, or fly to Tuguegarao in Cagayan, or to Laoag City in Ilocos Norte. That three mentioned towns are the gateway to Calayan. The closest municipality to Calayan is Claveria.

From the fishing port in Claveria/Lakay lakay port or the Aparri port, take a lampitaw boat ride (motorized pump boat) to Calayan. Boats leave between 5 to 7 AM if there’s cargo that needs to be shipped or if the weather condition permits. Boat rides cost PHP 500/person and can last 5-7 hours from and to Aparri or 5 hours from and to Claveria.
WHERE TO STAY IN CALAYAN ISLAND:
For your convenience one must have a local contact in Calayan or Claveria to arrange ticket reservations. You may contact Tita Conie Agudera: 0921-534-9231. She’s our local contact in Calayan Island.
The trip should take you to majestic islands, each isolated from the others by miles of ocean and totally different in its features.
Camiguin Norte has mountains at its centre and humpback whales off its coast. Dalupiri on the other hand is a huge block of rock rising up from the sea with sheer walls. Fuga Island meanwhile is as flat as a pancake and has vast grasslands as far the eye can see.
Due to unpredictable weather and ocean conditions, the itinerary may not be fixed and getting stranded on an island for several days may happen at all times. The boat rides are rough, long and oftentimes scary. One may encounter big waves on relatively small boats.
