VIRAC

The Terminal Port of Virac is situated in the eastern island of Luzon considered “typhoon prone” being the usual path of tropical depressions originating from the Pacific Ocean.

Owing from its natural endowments of flora and fauna including the white sandy beaches around it, trade and commerce in Catanduanes have grown progressively with time.

RORO ferries link Virac and the municipal ports of San Andres to Tabaco on a regular basis. Other inter-island vessels call frequently this port carrying cargoes from the Visayas, Manila and Tabaco.

Transport equipment tops both incoming and outgoing cargoes while the rest mainly consist of basic construction materials, palay & rice, petroleum products, bottled beverages & other general cargoes. For years, abaca has thus far been a steady product brought out from the island province. Equally stable is its market in Albay which is noted as a prime exporter of abaca bags, ropes & related products.

The Port of Bulan is located in the municipality of Bulan, Sorsogon about 56 kilometers from the city of Sorsogon. It is located at the southeast end of Luzon, is the ideal jump-off point to Masbate, and Western Samar islands not traversed by the Pan Philippine Highway.

Its RC pier has recently been upgraded to serve both conventional and roll-on-roll-off vessels, following the rise in RORO traffic.
