I am such a nocturnal person that it is very RARE that I see a sun rise. However, here in Biri Island, I forced myself to wake up early (4am) to get a glimpse of the sunrise...and I do not regret it all. It was mystical, at least for me. The view of the rock formation while the sun is rising is just breathtaking. Though I have to say getting to this part requires about a 20 minute walk in ankle-length sea water, but the experience is an addition to the wonderful memorable experience of Biri. If you're a traveler and and adventurer at heart, Biri Island is one spot you shouldn't miss. The view, especially during sunrise, can touch one's soul.

This Island Paradise is a bit difficult to reach. But you have options to travel by land, air and sea and you will have to do all which makes finding this remote island more interesting. It will give you a breath of fresh air and that feeling of simple life in the province. And seeing this rock formations is a perfect spot for Instagram worthy photos. Also be amazed by the ocean waves hitting the rocks in a rumbling sound. Recommended for those who love nature.

Amazing rock formation. You can spend hours here exploring the rocks and just watching the waves. Accessible by car and about a kilometer hike on a wooden bridge. Local guides are also present.

Never heard of this place before, until one of my batch mates from high school invited me to join her & 2 of her officemates to this Biri Rock Formations, I googled about it & i was captivated by the beauty of the rock formations so I immediately accepted her invite. It wassssss a long travel from Cebu. We tooked the Cokaliong Shipping trip, Cebu to Calbayog on Friday night. Departed from port of Cebu at 7pm and we arrived at Calbayog port 7am the next day. wewww 12hrs! Tourist Accommodation is P990/head. From there, we rode a jeepney to the city proper (for free, it was Cokaliong's boat service since the port is located around 30mins from the heart of Calbayog City) to have our breakfast & to meet one of our companion who is coming from Catbalogan City. From Calbayog City, we took a Grand Tours van to Municipality of Allen for P100/head. Then, tricycle for P15/head to Allen jeepney terminal from Grand Tours terminal. Jeepney Ride from Allen to Lavezares town is around 30mins and costs P25/head. It was cutting trips from Calbayog City since no van flying directly to Lavezares town, even the ones going to Catarman is taking different route, not passing by the town of Lavezares. Buses?? I'm not sure, coz we didn't bother to ask about it, since we believed that van will be faster. Just tell the driver to drop you at the jump off point to Biri Island. From the jeepney stop just walk towards the pump boats docked to the back of the town's public market. Special Trip to Biri Island costs P1,000 but we opted to take the regular trip with 5 other passengers who are locals of Biri. We paid for the remaining 15pax (P750). No fix schedule for the regular trips, as soon as there will be 20 passengers the pump boat will depart. Sailing time towards Biri Island is around 1 hour. Upon arrival at the island, the locals can immediately identify if you are a tourist and will guide you to go first to the Tourism Center for Registration (fee is P50/head, good for 3 days) and Tourist Briefing. We rode motorcycles for hire (habal-habal in local term) and at the tourism center we were brief about the rock formations. The habal-habal drivers that we rode from the pump boat terminal will be our service for our entire stay at the island & one of the drivers will be our tour guide to the rock formations. Tour guides have accreditation from the local government unit of Biri. Tour Guide is P300/day and motorcycle is P195/day. Their tourism center has an updated list of all accommodations with corresponding price in the island. From resorts to accredited homestay. Biri's Power Supply is 12nn-12am on weekdays and 12nn-4am on weekends. So, we preferred resorts than homestays because of generators. We stayed at Glenda's Bread & Breakfast since our 1st choice Villa Amor was fully booked. P1,500 per room, air-conditioned with 2 queen size bed and we chose beach side. The owner is a Canadian National is very accommodating...ohhh Glenda is his wife...πŸ˜€ We started our tour at 3:30pm, it was very late to finish visiting all the rock formations. So, we decided to continue it the next day, of course another fee for the motorcycles and tour guide. But it was worth it coz we experienced both sunset & sunrise at the Biri rock formations. Truly, it was a Biri amazing experience!!! The view of enormous rock formations & the fierce waves coming from the Pacific Ocean is B R E A T H T A K I N G!!! The next day, our habal-habal drivers & tour guide woke us up at 4am, since we agreed to catch the sunrise at Macadlaw Rock Formation. That magical feeling of personally witnessing Mr. Sun rise from the Pacific Ocean. whewww!!! After, we returned to our resort for breakfast and preparations. Our habal-habal drivers will pick up us at 10am to bring us to the pump boat docking area. As for our food, we just bought our ingredients from the market and ask the resort cook to prepare it for us. Charge is P300 for our dinner & breakfast. The cook coincidentally to be the wife of our tour guide. From the island, pumpboats will leave upon reaching 15 passengers. We decided to wait for other passengers together with other 3 who came ahead of us since we were not in a hurry coz our flight is still the next day, Tacloban - Cebu. Luckily, a Biri town councilor who is catching a flight to Manila to PCL event paid the remaining passengers...πŸ˜‰ There's a Cebu Pacific flight from Calbayog City - Cebu at 12noon. I wasn't sure if it's daily but there's sched on Sunday. But we booked Tacloban to Cebu..it was another longggg land trip for us to Tacloban from Lavezares, though we sleep over at Catbalogan City. Plan your Biri Escapade now!!! see photos attached for list of tourism facilities & their tourism officer contact info, it might help you guys. Biri Rocks!!!🀘🏼🀘🏼🀘🏼
