Getting to Magallanes

Reaching the town of Magallanes is already a travel adventure in itself. From Legazpi, take a bus from the central terminal to Sorsogon City. Magallanes Town is reachable by jeepneys either via two (2) major roads, via Municipality of Bulan and the other, the one used by many is through the Daang Maharlika with a junction in the Municipality of Juban. It is more or less 48 kilometers from Sorsogon City and the provincial capital. The Daang Maharlika from Magallanes to Juban is a long and winding road that skirts through mountains with breathtaking view and scenery. When one is approaching Magallanes you get the glimpse of the Sorsogon Bay and the lush vegetation and coconut plantations as far as the eyes can see from the top of the mountain where the road snakes through dizzying curbs. When one is from Magallanes entering the Municipality of Juban, you get the chance to appreciate the forest vegetation, trees, mountains and later on the view of the Mt. Bulusan on the right side while you are on top of the mountain in the part of Jagusara. There are also villages, farms and rice fields beginning in Barangay Pili onwards and when you are near the town proper, you’ll notice the stretch of fishponds and the shoreline. In a private car, it only takes one hour to reach Sorsogon city but in a public transport, owing to the many stopovers to load and unload passengers and cargoes, it may take one and a half hour or maximum of two hours travel time.
