How to go to Panikian Island, Pitogo, Zamboanga del Sur

Panikian Island, Pitogo, Zamboanga Del Sur

From Pagadian City, walk towards the Cerilles Terminal near the Public Market. From there, there will be vans going to Pitogo (Fare is P100). Vans leave every 15-30 mins regardless of the number of passengers (though they run as slowly as can so they have a good chance of catching passengers midway in case not in full load). First trip to Pitogo is 6am and last trip going back to Pagadian, from Pitogo, is 4pm.

In Pitogo, ask to be dropped in the Municipality and look for the Municipal Administrator (Mr. Roland P Eta’s office, 2nd floor). Seek permission so he can call the chief security in the island. Sir Roland generously shared his mobile number for questions and those who will be visiting on weekends 09185095741. You may also call his staff JP at 09497090607.

The island is as pristine as you can imagine. No potable water, toilet, etc so prepare to rough it out. There is reception though for both Smart and Globe cellulars.

This trip is part of my 13 day Southern Mindanao Trip. I posted a few details of my schedule and expenses here
