When I went to Guiuan I was looking forward to seeing the 16th Century Church, the beaches of Calicoan Island and their airport. I never knew that one of my most memorable places in Guiuan would be their Central Transport Terminal.
Guiuan Transport Terminal is actually built on a reclaimed land like SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. It does not only cater land transportation but it is also where you can ride boats to Homonhon Island, where Ferdinand Magellan first landed in the Philippines, and Manicani Island. Though I’m not sure if they also have rides going to Suluan Island.
Another reason why I love the Transport Terminal in Guiuan is their FOOD!!!! Dining beside the sea, breathing and feeling the fresh air, eating fresh delicious foods with the budget of an eatery. I only paid 40 Pesos for my pork steak and 5 Pesos for a cup of rice.
Moving on, below are the details of the transportation you will see in Guiuan Transport Terminal
Multicabs going to Sulangan, Calicoan Island
These multicabs passes by Calicoan Island, if you do not want to rent a tricycle you may want to ride here.
Fare is 40 Pesos to Sulangan and takes almost an hour to get there. For Calicoan Island it’s only 30 Pesos/person and takes 30 to 45 minutes to get there.
First trip is 7AM and the last trip will depend if there are still many passengers. But according to the driver usually the last trip is about 5PM. The multicab will leave when it is full.

If you want to get to Salcedo where Hagnaya Beach is located you should ride these tricycles.
