    Free entry, no stalls selling anything means peace and tranquility!

    The beach itself is ok. As with most beaches these days you will find it littered with plastic bottles, crisp packets and general rubbish.

    To get to the sand bar you need to walk about 5 minutes along the beach. If you are only going to see the sand bar you could use a local tide forecast so you get there when the tide is low and hopefully see the sand bar. We went at low tide but the bar was still covered by water, I think to see it full exposed you need to catch a tide when the moon pull is strong like at a full moon.

    Being an out of the lime light location you will more than likely have the beach to yourselves, maybe on a weekend there will be more locals there? We went on a Monday and it was very quiet!

    Well worth a visit if you are looking for a quiet scenic place to catch some sunshine.

    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.

    2) Prep:
    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.

    3) Climb.
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This island is larger than Alad, the latter with its cove being the highlight of my island hopping from Romblon Island.

    It is a very short hop from Romblon with the bangka being able to land on the shore.

    However Lugbong Island (sometimes spelt as 'Lugbon') was great and had a lovely longish white sand beach with friendly villagers, no official entrance fee (though I gave an islander some money) and a few fish and quite a few corals from my brief snorkelling.

    There was little or no rubbish on the shore which is how I like it.

    The sea looked beautiful as it was another sunny day in Philippines. It was aquamarine in part where there was a sandy bottom.

    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.
