Romblon

The Province of Romblon is a cluster of twenty islands lying at the center of the Philippine archipelago. It is completely surrounded by deep waters with Sibuyan Sea on the north, east and south, and Tablas Strait on the west. Romblon’s three major islands are Tablas, Romblon, and Sibuyan, forming the largest and populated areas.
Dubbed as the “Marble Country” which fittingly describes the rich deposits of marble found all over the province.
Romblon is the only place in the Southeast Asia with the marble deposits of commercial value. Experts say that Romblon marbles are equal to Italian marbles in quality.
The people of Romblon are mainly engaged in farming (rice, copra and abaca) and fishing.

Arriving & Leaving

On one hand it is really a pity that the Islands are “very hard to reach” but on the other hand that makes a visit even more interesting, because the Islands are still unspoiled and even in holy week, when the whole Philippines are booked out you will always find a place to stay. Recently a fl ight connection between Manila and Tablas has been established - but they don’t carry bikes.

 

Romblon Town

The place is one of the prettiest in the Philippines with its narrow streets and the nice plaza, located in a natural harbor. Romblon is the capital of the province even if it is not the capital in terms of “getting there and away”. If you are looking for some decent food and nice hang outs, then this is the place in the Romblon Islands ... but don’t expect to much.
