Bucas Grande Island can be reached through a combination of air, land and sea transportation.

Sohoton Cove - How To Get There
Reaching the Island entails one to do a combination of land, sea, and air travel. There are direct flights going to Surigao City from Manila. Upon reaching the city of Surigao, you will have two options for land travel before you can finally get on board a motorbanca. The first option would be to take a multicab/tricycle ride from the airport going to the Public Market and go straight to Pier 2 where you can find the motorbanca bound for Socorro or the lone municipality of Bucas Grande Island. Now the second option would be to go to the Integrated Terminal which is nearby the airport and take a van or bus which is bound for Cantilan or Tandag. This time, you have to drop at the port of Hayangabon within the municipality of Claver; there you will find bancas which are also bound for Socorro. Note that the travel from Hanyangabon port to Bucas Grande Island Surigao will take less time when compared to traveling directly from Surigao City.

If your from mainland Mindanao, travel directly from your place to Hayanggabon Port.

Now, you may be thinking that it is much of a hassle to reach Bucas Grande Island. Well, that could be the case, especially if it will be your first time, which is why it is highly recommended to get a Sohoton Cove travel package tour for you to lessen the burden as well as travel expenses. Tour packages being offered usually include a round trip boat transfer from Hayangabon port to Socorro and vice versa.
