Lets Go Philippines

Romblon, Sibuyan and Tablas Island Tourist Spot and Accommodation

Romblon is an archipelago of 20 islands that together make up Romblon Province. The area is rich in natural resources like granite and nickel and has lush vegetation that helps to make the locals self sufficient.

The three main islands consist of Romblon, Sibuyan and Tablas. The provincial capital is also called Romblon. The whole region is brimming with deep water fishing areas, which bring fishermen in from miles around.

The archipelago is centrally located in the Philippines and makes up part of the larger Visayan Island Groups, with Romblon being the furthest group north. One of the main exports that differ from other locations in the Philippines is marble, which is said to be as good as you can get in Italy.

Much of the area consists of mountainous ranges and steep heavy coastal sides that characterize the islands; beaches flow out to grassy hills which in turn fade away to rugged rocks and impassably obstacles. Tablas Island is the largest of all and like the area is mountainous and looks bare to the eye.

Mainit waterfalls was  located on Tablas Island, a popular attraction for tourists, although, it’s a private property visitors are always welcome.

The isle of Sibuyan is the second largest; shaped like a mango it is home to the famous Mountain Guiting-Guiting, which takes up much of the island and was first climbed in 1982. The island emerged from the sea due to movements in the earth’s plates and has never been connected to other land in the Philippines.

The national park on Romblon is now protected as most of the low lying forest was previously logged. Handicrafts in the province are exported, with the area being well known for traditional weaving and basket making, which many women do from home. Also fine bedspreads and beautiful laces are made in the region.

The islands’ name is said to have come from the word lomom meaning a hen. When a Spanish invader asked locals the name of the islands he pointed down to where a hen was sitting and asked the name and it slowly evolved into Romblon.
