Located on a bay at the Pacific Coast, this small town is how you define laid- back. I have been here dozen of times to visit relatives yet this place still gives me that same feeling of comfort and nonchalance. We go out with our “pambahays” to buy ice cream (which you should be doing during daytime since stores close really early), observe the sunset at the bay and watch people fishing using their rods at their nonfunctional pier. Life here is simple and its the kind of life people from busy cities (like me) long for.
We went for the Cebu- Hilongos route (fastest route) via Roble Shipping which departs at 9 pm. If you want to void yourself of the hassle of transferring from one bus to another, you can buy a bus ticket at the boat. Just tell the concierge that you are disembarking at St. Bernard. Fare is 160 php. At the bus, you must tell the “conductor” that you are heading for St. Bernard. Otherwise, if you are not at all familiar, you mind end up reaching the end point town which is Hinunangan.
