a VirtualTourist member from Boracay Island
Can anyone tell me what is the easiest way to get to the island? I'll be coming from Boracay by land and ferry. What is the nearest large city or town to Sipalay? Thanks.
Hi Jen, according to the lonley planet a ferry goes from Illoilo City, Panay to Bacolod, Negros. Buses run from Bacolod to Sipalay (4 hours journey) daily. Hope this helps...
Thanks Jon. Does anyone know which is the best part of the island to stay on? Is Sugar Beach nice?
from boracay you can travel going to ilo-ilo city. from ilo-ilo city you ride a ferry going to bacolod and from bacolod take a bus (ceres Liner) going to sipalay. it will take 4 hr to travel from bacolod city going to sipalay city. when you arrive on sipalay you can go to sipalay city hall and ask for palce to stay. if you want to you look for my brother he working at city hall at the mayors office. his name is Dionilo Bogtae. have a nice day and nice trip.
Oops, I got confused - Sugar Beach is in Bantanyan! Thanks for your reply.
