With over 7,000 islands, we’ll never run out of places to visit here in our beloved Philippines. Living in a province as rich as Quezon has a lot of perks. Aside from having the chance to taste flavorful dishes and delicacies (pansit habhab, longganisang Lucban, yema cake, pinagong, and more), Quezon is the home for amazing islands and one of which is Jomalig.


In the past few years, Jomalig is making a name in the travel industry. That’s not surprising because truly, Jomalig is an island worth visiting.

What do you need to Know about Jomalig? 

Even though Jomalig is getting more and more popular for travelers, many still don’t know much about this island. Let’s start with its name! The island’s name is pronounced as “humalig”.

Jomalig is the least populated municipality in Quezon with just around 7,000 + residents according to the 2015 census. Jomalig Island is about 75 nautical miles (139 km) southeast of Polillo Islands. Like other municipalities in Quezon, Jomalig is cultivated for agricultural land use.

Ever since I learned about the existence of Jomalig, I know for sure that it’s one of my dream destinations. For quite some time, I dreamed of visiting this island. Until, last May, I was able to set foot to the island I’ve been dreaming of. As a matter of fact, I tried to apply for a job that will allow me to stay on this island permanently. However, that job application didn’t push through but I got the chance to visit Jomalig and that’s wonderful.

How to Reach Jomalig Island? 

Jomalig is a four-hour boat ride away from the Real port. At first, I thought that the boat ride will definitely be a pain in the ass since I’m still battling motion sickness from time to time. Well, it’s not! The boat ride is surprisingly comfortable and it didn’t feel that long after all.

So, if you’re hesitating to visit Jomalig because the boat ride scares you… fret not! It was a safe and enjoyable boat ride.

From Manila…

There are 2 ways to get there…

  • From Cubao, ride a bus bound to Real Quezon (travel time takes around 4-5 hours)
  • From Alabang (Starmall Alabang or South Station), ride a bus bound to Lucena Grand Terminal. Once you’re in Lucena, you can ride a bus or van bound to Quezon which may take another 3-4 hours. If you want something more comfortable, you can try the vans near Starmall Alabang to check if there are ones bound to Real or Infanta (alight in Real port).
  • There are several boat packages available when you reached the port. Note: No need to worry because the locals are truly nice and there are a lot of tourism officers who can assist you!

Personally, I prefer a chill kind of trip as I just want to enjoy Jomalig’s beauty. Thus, I chose to join a packaged tour with a good friend of mine.

The package cost 3,000 PHP which includes the following: bus transportation (back and forth (we met up in Quezon City)), boat transfer, foooooooods (we even had a whole lechon), accommodations (we slept in HUGE tents provided by the organizer and pitched in Jomaligaya Resort), and island hopping tour. Plus, I got to travel with awesome people.

 *blessed to be in a wonderful island with these awesome friends*
