Romblon Islands Philippines
Marble Country Of The Philippines

Recognized as Marble Country of the Philippines, Romblon is famed for its rich marble deposits. Marble, however, is not the province’s only treasure.

Existing in relative isolation from the rest of Luzon, Romblon retains much of its Spanish legacy and its natural attractions are largely unexplored. Lining the shores of the province’s three major islands – Romblon, Sibuyan, and Tablas – are some of the best, most unspoiled beaches in this part of the country. Ringed by palm-fringed white sand, these beaches boast a wealth and variety of marine life offshore. Inland, there are a number of waterfalls and an inland salt lake.

Romblon is an island province of the Philippines located in the MIMAROPA region in Luzon. The province consists of numerous islands sitting in the Sibuyan Sea. It lies south of Marinduque and Quezon, east of Mindoro, north of Aklan and Capiz, and west of Masbate. The three major islands are Romblon Island, Tablas Island, and Sibuyan Island. Its capital is the municipality also named Romblon located in Romblon Island; they are near the centre of the archipelago, and the most northern islands of the Visayan group, hence it belongs previously to Western Visayas, but later its regional grouping was transferred later to Southern Tagalog Region IV-B or MiMaRoPa Region.

The northern islands of the Archipelago known as Maghali group or Tres Islas form with the islands of Mindoro and Marinduque clear, deep channels, much frequented by Philippine boats; the islands are also indented with well sheltered inlets and bays. The province was organized into Politico Military Commandancia in 1853. The islands constituting the province are as follows: Banton Island, the most northerly island of the group; Maestro de Campo Island, the westernmost island of the province; Simara Island, situated in-between Tablas and Banton; Tablas Island, the largest island in the group; Sibuyan Island, the second largest easternmost island in the group; Carabao Island, the southernmost island of the province, and Romblon Island, the third island in size, giving its name to the group and the province on account of central location and mineral wealth which is Marble.

Romblon is the country's leading producer of high-quality marble, comparable to that of Italy.

Travel Quotes:

The attention of a traveller, should be particularly turned, in the first place, to the various works of Nature, to mark the distinctions of the climates he may explore, and to offer such useful observations on the different productions as may occur. William Bartram

Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water. W. C. Fields
