What travelers are saying
- It is indeed remarkably beautiful. But then, at low tide, one can not swim. There is only 20cm of water. And there are sea urchins.Written 6 July 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- The beach entrance of 50 pesos is okay for a whole day stay in the beach. It was clean when I visited and was the only one around the area. Very nice place to chill!Written 31 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Coming from France , I’ve ben in Sibuyan several Times , love this place , love people who live thereWritten 19 February 2018
- One of the hardest mountains in Mt Guiting-Guiting. the climb aside, another challenging thing is simply getting there itself. As a tourist, it was quite hard to find information on getting there on the internet. I was very lucky i found a random group to tag along with.
1) Getting there:
I flew to Manila Airport, and then made my way to Pasay bus terminal, where i found a bus to take my to Batangas Pier. Buses leave regularly (around ~ 15 mins?), and you make payment on the bus itself so just board first. bus ride was comfortable with TV and air conditioned, took around an hour half and only cost around ~150-200 php. Once you get there, make your way to the ferry terminal (should be terminal 2) and look for a provider to get to Sibuyan. Warning: the ferry takes SEVENTEEN hours in total. Ferries leave at designated time. If i'm right, it usually leaves at 4pm, but you've to get there early to get a ticket (i reached around 1pm and boarded around 3pm). The provider i took allocated every person 1 bed so it was ok. Not much food provided on the ferry except cup noodles, so advised to pack your own food. no showers are provided as well. Upon reaching Sibuyan, you can take a motor tricycle to the lodge for your briefing. Would advise to grab a bite, takeaway some food, and then stock up on water and food supplies for the climb.
At the lodge, there is a compulsory briefing to attend and signing of a few forms plus making payment (can't remember how much, but think its a few hundred php). Thereafter, you will go to your guide's house for final prep where you can leave some stuff behind and only bring what you need. there is an estimated guideline of 1 guide to 3 hikers (i think). Specifically to water, would recommend to bring more because it is HOT. and the water points along the way are subject to rainfall. there might not be any water source on the mountains. i was lucky there was still water remaining but its depends on your luck.
The climb itself was tough but doable. just note that it is not a gentle walk in the park, but at times its scrambling and lots of climbing up rocks. walking poles are advised, but i made do without it. there are also different methods - you can either do a traverse or just a walk up and back. Hammocks are advised instead of tents, due to the limited space at the rest points. Day 1 was around an 7 hour walk from my guide's house to Mayos peak. Day 2 started around 7am, i reached the peak by 11/12 noon, followed by another 5/6 hours to camp 2. Day 3 started around 9, and i finished the hike at 1pm.
Post climb: the ferry leaves around 1000, so be sure to get there early. After that, its just another 17 hour ferry ride back again.
Overall: great climb. i met a very nice group of Filipinos who were very nice. Climb was challenging but fun. i especially enjoyed the scrambling because i wanted something more than a normal walk. Admittedly, the "getting there" part was a big turn off. but i'm glad i went with it still it adds to the overall experience i guess. i wanted something off the beaten track and this was it. if anyone needs any tips or help, i would gladly help. Strongly recommend anyone who is up for an adventure to go for this.Written 2 June 2018

- A small fortress located on top of a hill over looking the port.
It's quite interesting seeing how the fort has been refurbished and also to read about its past history and the people who descended the island.
It's free entry but a donation is accepted by the volunteer grounds man who will show you around and also leave you to look at what you want in your on pace.
Very small and you could possibly spend 30-40 minutes here depending on your interest in historical events.
Not much to do on Romblon so this make a worthy place to visit to break up the days you are here.Written 24 October 2019
- We enjoyed the place as we had it all to ourselves when we visited.
The water was clear and place was ok. There were some steps going to the place where I find it challenging.Written 29 July 2018
- It is good to see natural view here. You will enjoy the free diving here because of the cool staffs. They will guide you until you are good enough to go by yourself while diving. Coral reefs and fishes made me enjoyed the under the water view. I hope this kind of treasure will be keep until next generation comes.Written 21 October 2016
- it stands proud in the middle of the town, like a guard protecting something precious. this sacred place houses a known figure of the sto. niño (infant jesus) which is believed to be miraculous.
this Church has withstood the tests of time, including natural (earthquake) and man-made (world wars) disasters. it has a beautiful belfry adjacent to the main structure. its high windows allow the air to circulate freely inside and serves as a natural ventilation.
st joseph Cathedral may be small compared with regular cathedral sizes but the ambiance is really perfect for anybody to commune with God.Written 29 April 2018
