    if you were talking about Silingan Island, there are tours going to island and there's also a resort beside ranger's station, as far as I know you have to book the night at the resort, it's a private island and the owner does not sell anymore to private people but only to tour operator who provide also for transfers. You probably need also pre=book quite in advance as there is a limit for the number of people each night.

    Yup, exactly. You cannot visit the island without a tour. And you cannot visit the island without spending the night. The lodgings are limited and may fill up quickly depending on the season, however you always have a chance of getting a last minute spot or cancellation.

    All tour bookings will include transport to the island either from your hotel or the tour agency's office depending on how you arrange it.
