A Vacation in Romblon, Philippines
When you mention Romblon, most Filipinos will tell you that it is the “Marble Capital” of the Philippines. Well, this is true since this island province is the main source of marble in the country. But when it is about a place to have fun or relax, the province of Romblon is a place to be considered.
Romblon is among the places in the Philippines that offers a “Virgin Paradise” for both local and foreign tourists. This is because the province is not yet widely known for its natural beauty compared to its surrounding neighbors such as Palawan, Baguio, Taal Lake and the island of Caticlan and Cebu. So you may ask “What are the things that Romblon has to compete with the more popular islands?” Here are the answers to that question.
What to do in Romblon?
Boracay is a very popular beach location and everyone in the Philippines knows about it. But how many Filipinos heard about the beaches in Romblon? The Talbas Beach Resort and the Bonbon Beach Resort are currently the most popular and still it remains virtually empty throughout the year when compared to Boracay in Caticlan and the beaches in Cebu. White sands are also found in Romblon and specifically in Tiamban Beach in the town of Lonos. The white shore stretches long and with only palm trees in sight. So if you want a relaxing beach vacation skip the common beaches in the Visayas and go to Romblon this time around.
Scuba Diving in Romblon
The waters of Romblon are largely exposed to fishermen than tourists. This is why several natural marine sanctuaries flourish around the island. So if you are into scuba diving then Romblon is a perfect place for such a hobby. The current diving location in Romblon is Three P Holiday Dive Resort.
Mountain Climbing in Mt. Guting-Guting
For those who want to relax on a high altitude location then Romblon is up to the challenge. In the town of San Fernando is the Mt. Guting-Guting National Park. It is a great place for any mountaineers and for those who want to enjoy a place with lush vegetation and colder temperatures.
These are just few of the things that you can do to enjoy a vacation in Romblon.
The place is still to become a widely recognized tourist spot like Cebu, Baguio and Palawan. So for now Romblon is a location for those who want a great relaxing vacation spot where there are few tourists to share it with.
