Port website: INSERT LINK TO PORT WEBSITE The Port of Lipata is one of the four (4) Ferry Terminals under the Eastern Nautical Highway—the first Roll-on, Roll-Off ports and highway system built in the Philippines to connect Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Serving as hub to two spoke ferry terminals (namely the ports of Liloan and San Ricardo, all in Southern Leyte), the Port of Lipata has three (3) RORO ramps, one (1) RORO berth and one (1) specialized steel ramp. In 2014, the Port of Lipata again received major infrastructure developments with the expansion of its back-up area by almost half a hectare to complement berthing facilities, enhancing its role as Mindanao’s primary RORO link connecting to the Visayas and the rest of the country.
