Baybay is the second city of the western coast of Leyte but its port is less developed. There are regular ferry lines to Cebu twice a day and few cargo vessels coming depending the demand.
Generally, the cargo vessels come to supply cement, fertilizer or animal feeding product from Cebu while the only commodities going out are copra product.
Bunkering is possible on demand but unusual as the prices in Cebu are cheaper.
