Tiamban Beach

Reviewed By dpalisoc - Cainta, Philippines

White beach, calm water, relaxing place....what else can you ask for? Well, since this place hasn't been visited yet by many, they have no activities here yet to offer except swimming...hoping that this can be improved in the next years to come!

Amazing white sand bar, good for relaxing, picnic, and swimming. About one hour travel by boat. Advisable to come here in the morning, about 12pm sea water start to hide the sand bar. You have to pay P10 to care taker.

Fort San Andres

Reviewed By EricSkopec - Carmona, Cavite, Philippines

Romblon is the only heritage town in the Philippines protected by two forts. Only San Andres has been restored, but it offers great views of the town and harbor. Steps up to the fort have been lovingly restored and frequent stopping points along the way give old folks like me many places to catch their breath. Marble creations by local artists add interest to the climb. Sadly, hours of operation are a bit erratic and visitors may not be able to go inside. However, views even from outside the fence are spectacular and make the climb well worthwhile.

Cobrador Island

Reviewed By mowma - Quezon City, Philippines

When visiting the Romblon,Romblon you should not miss going to the nearby island of Cobrador. Cobrador Island could be accessed through the island of Romblon (there are three major Islands for the Romblon province - Tablas (the biggest), Sibuyan (2nd biggest) and Romblon (smallest, but where the provincial government resides). From Romblon you can rent a boat to the island which will take you more or less an hour. It is always best to communicate with the Provincial Tourism office when you want to visit the island so they can prepare meals on the island and visits to sites within the island. At Cobrador you will be given a brief introduction of the island and you will be taken around the island, first stop is called the "guard house" or more known as Takot Reef and there you could do an exciting cliff jump. You can also swim, snorkel around the reef. After that you will be taken to the place they call "tinagong dagat" or literally in English hidden ocean, inside is a beautiful site of water gathered by strong waves to create a pool like haven, You could spend hours on that place alone. Food prepared by the people of Cobrador is great, so its a must try as well.
I would definitely be back to explore more of the Islands of Romblon.
To end, do not expect to much comfort when going to Islands like Cobrador, potable drinking water are hard there, mobile phone signal is hard specially if you are using smart phones.

Sibuyan Island

Reviewed By Hollies2010 - Chorley, United Kingdom

Sibuyan was one of our favourite Islands during our 5 month tour of the Philippines. We stayed at Sanctuary Garden Resort in Magdiwang, it was wonderful!!
Sibuyan is known as the Galapagos of Asia due to the abundance of flowers, trees and animals found nowhere else in the world. We saw so many beautiful flowers, Sibuyan has so much natural beauty, it is a really special place to visit.
We hired bicycles to explore some of the Islands Waterfalls. From Magdiwang we visited Cataja falls and Lambongham falls, just a couple of the many Waterfalls on the island. Both were beautiful, with natural pools of cool sping water, perfect for swimming, we had the Waterfalls all to ourselves, it was incredible.
The centre of the island is dominated by Mt Guiting Guiting, beautiful when viewed from afar, it is possible to climb the mountain but this takes several days for experienced climbers.
Sibuyan can be reached from Romblon by a daily ferry which takes around 2 hours.
Sibuyan is an incredibly beautiful and unique island. The natural, untouched beauty is breathtaking, the locals very friendly and welcoming, we had a truly amazing time and feel very lucky to have visited such a wonderful island

Alad Island

Reviewed By unsavvytraveler1 - Manchester, United Kingdom

This Marine Sanctuary is great for snorkeling/diving, underwater landscape has many soft/hard corals, plenty of marine animals hanging out enjoying the atmosphere. Just a 35-45 minute boat ride from Romblon Island, great place to spend the day but take food because there arent any restaurants on this small island

Margie's Beach

Reviewed By EricSkopec - Carmona, Cavite, Philippines

Generally a nice private cove with gentle surf and somewhat rocky beach. Not cleaned regularly so trash and other debris accumulates above the tide line, but best place for gathering shells and polished stones. Parents with small children should be especially vigilant because stone formations at either end encourage children to climb, but the rocks are slippery and even a short fall onto the rocks can throw incautious explorers into moderately turbulent waters.

Apunan Point Lighthouse

Reviewed By Max_Syra - Basel, Switzerland

Der 20m hohe oktogonale Stahl Leuchtturm der Philippine Coastguard Navy mit Topgalerie, erbaut 1973, liegt am Südlichsten Punkt der Insel Romblon 12° 28‘ 46“ N, 122° 17? 08“ E mit Blick auf Tablas, Sibuyan und Romblon selbst. Zufahrt ab Romblon Hafen ca. 17,7 km auf Regional Hwy 305, Romblon - Sawang - Agnipa - Sablayan Rd. (Scooter ca. 45‘) Der Abzweig zum Leuchturm ist nicht ausgeschildert und leicht zu übersehen. Bei ruhiger See gute Sicht auf vorgelagerte Korallenbänke. Schildkrötengebiet. Gut zum Schnorcheln und Tauchen. Einritt frei, Spende willkommen. Interessanter Zwischenstop bei Inselrundfahrt.
