Since I was growing up in the 50s, I have always longed to reach Olotayan but never did. The close-up pictures from the website show it as even more inviting. I looked at it again from afar on 3/3/17 & 3/4/17 and the longing is...More

This island is very easy to reach. It only takes us 15 minutes or less to reach this island. During rainy seasons, this island is not advisable to visit because of large waves.

This non-commercial and unspoiled island is for the brave hearted. The waves are huge... Larger boats are recommended. Once there, you can enjoy the white sand beaches and choose your spot. I call it raw and wild because of its nature. We brought our own...More

Olotayan is the only island barangay of Roxas city. It's nice for a day of island fun. It boasts of white coral like sandy shore. Make sure to wear your aqua shoes and bring loads of sunblock!

The perfect spot for a group of friends just willing to go places and experience the local culture. It was one of the best local spots we went to. You could try snorkeling as there were a lot of coral reefs.
