How to get there?
You can either book a plane to Cebu or Tacloban.
I'll be doing Tacloban first. I would recommend a v-hire ride to Maasin City VIA (BayBay Leyte) from Tacloban for convenience purposes, Its a 3 hour long ride so it would be better to bring along some snacks and fully charge your gadgets to keep you occupied. do tell the driver to drop you off at the public market of Inopacan. Once at the public market, head towards the back of the Municipal Hall, which is the bay walk. There, you will find the registration area and the launching pad of the boats that you can hire for Cuatro Islas.
You have plenty of options but I would highly recommend you take the ferry bound for Hilongos Leyte.you can either book a ticket from Roble shipping lines or Gabisan Shipping lines they both have 2 daily trips. 12NN and 9PM. For Roble and 2:30pm and 9pm for Gabisan Shipping Lines. Travel time is approximately 5hrs. upon arrival in Hilongos you can either hike to the jeepney terminal or take a "potpot" ride and tell the driver to drop you off there. From there you can take a jeepney or bus ride to Inopacan. Travel time is approximately 20-30 mins.
