Ro-Ro Travel from Allen to Matnog Port (and vice-versa)

Matnog Port, Sorsogon
If you will be traveling by land in the Bicol Region and Region 8, it is a must that you will cross via Ro-Ro the Matnog and Allen ports. The distance between the 2 ports is 25 kms.

There are 2 ports in Allen, Samar and there is only one in Matnog, Sorsogon.

The two ports in Allen are -


1. Dapdap, Kinabranan (there are 4 ships)
    Montenegro - Contact no. 0935-844-5111


2. Balwharteco, Looc (there are 8 ships)
    168 and Star Ferry - Contact No. 0917-591-7718
    Sta. Clara - Contact Nos. 0920-894-4458/ 0917-580-1524

    Better choice is the Looc since it has more ships.
From my experience, even during Holy Week, the shipping lines still service the route provided there are passengers and cargoes. It was Holy Thursday when I traveled in Allen. The only thing that prevents the Ro-Ro trip is a typhoon.

Travel from  time Allen to Matnog using a Ro-Ro and vice-versa is 1 hour.

  4. The Philippine Government is busy extending the relief goods to Samar. The ro-ro is available but you will encounter difficulty boarding or getting a ticket. It is better to make the reservation.

    1. Sandali lang. I mean if my memory serves me right, less than 2 hours. You can see the other island at the opposite side. The problem is that it is a Ro-Ro and it moves slowly and secondly, sometimes there is a long queue of the buses .

  21. Private vehicles only cost around 1500-2k. 25km distance travel time is 2hours . Don't forget to bring an OR/CR or your car.
