Agta Beach Resort was founded in the mid-1980s when Mesiong and Pesing Sabitsana decided to open their home and beachfront to tourists. People flocked to Agta Beach Resort to enjoy the pristine waters and spectacular Agta sunsets, and with the addition of a dive shop, spa and cafe, there is all the more reason to come back and create unforgettable memories.

Manila to Tacloban/ Cebu to Tacloban by Air
From Manila, book yourself a flight to Tacloban on any of these airlines: Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, AirPhil Express and Zest Air.
The Manila-Tacloban flight will take a little over one hour and once in Tacloban, you have several options to get to Agta Beach Resort
Hire a van at the airport to take you directly to Agta Beach Resort;
Ride a jeep or taxi to go to the van terminal and hire a van there to take you directly to Agta Beach Resort; or
Ride a jeep or taxi to the van terminal and get on the van to Naval. Once in Naval, ride a bus to Kawayan and get off right at the top of the Agta Beach Resort driveway.
If you want to skip the whole Manila experience (we donâ€™t blame you), fly straight to Cebu and book a flight to Tacloban and then refer to nos. 1-3, or take a SuperCat to Ormoc (read on for more details).
Options 1 and 2 can cost up to Php3,000 to rent an entire van, while Option 3 will cost you less than Php400 per person. If youâ€™re on a budget, Option 3 is the way to go.
The Tacloban to Naval trip takes approximately 2.5 hours, while the Naval-Talahid leg takes about 30 minutes.
The ride is generally pleasant and youâ€™ll get your fill of rice paddies and mountains in no time.
If booking ahead of time, please inform the Agta Beach Resort crew when youâ€™ll be arriving because our car might just be in Naval and weâ€™ll gladly let you hop on.
If flying in from Cebu, we suggest taking a SuperCat to Ormoc rather than flying in to Tacloban. This costs less and cuts your land trip by 30-45 minutes.
Cebu to Ormoc:
Fly in straight to Cebu and find your way to the SuperCat terminal. There are three trips daily between Cebu-Ormoc and vice versa. Please click here for the schedule and here for the fare matrix.
From Ormoc, head to the van terminal and take a van to Naval. Once in Naval, ride a bus to Kawayan and get off right at the top of the Agta Beach Resort driveway.
There are also ferry trips between Cebu and Ormoc. Please click here for the shipping companies and their schedules.
The Cebu-Ormoc SuperCat is the most convenient option with well-maintained cabins and 2 hour travel time.
If youâ€™re booking ahead of time we may be able to send a car to pick you up in Naval. But again, no promises.
Cebu to Naval by overnight ferry
An overnight ferry (about 8 hours) also plies the Cebu to Naval route. The accommodations are very rustic and basic though and trips are prone to being cancelled during typhoon season. But on the flipside, you get to skip the land trip.
See you soon!
