Romblon Islands Philippines
Romblon Is Famous For...

Mountain Climbing at Mt. Guiting-Guiting
This mountain, found in Sibuyan Island, is the highest peak in Romblon and considered to be among the more formidable mountains in the country. Wild and unexplored, Mt. Guiting-Guiting presents a challenge to seasoned climbers. Rising a little more than 6,000 feet above sea level, its rugged terrain never fails to lure mountaineers to scale its peak; the sheer jagged peak rises 2,075 meters above sea level. The summit provides a magnificent view of the entire island and neighboring Romblon and Marinduque. Wild ferns, orchids, and bonsai dot the rugged trails. Hiring an experienced guide during a climb is a must.

Mt. Guiting-Guiting straddles the towns of Magdiwang, San Fernando, and Cajidiocan in the island of Sibuyan. From the ports of San Agustin or Romblon, board the ferry bound for the town of Magdiwang, the jump-off point to the site.

Marble
Recognized as Marble Country of the Philippines, Romblon is famed for its rich marble deposits. Cobrador Island, the largest among the islets dotting the seas around Romblon, is reputed to hold deposits of rare black, gold, and green marble. The best sweetsop and papaya are also grown here. The other treasures of Cobrador Island are its beaches – the most prominent being the wide expanse of fine white sand for about one kilometer on the eastern side of the islet.

St. Joseph Cathedral and Belfry
Located in the poblacion at Romblon, St. Joseph Cathedral and Belfry is the oldest Roman Catholic church in the province. It was built by the Recollect fathers out of limestone and brick in the 15th century. The structure is embellished with rich architectural detail.

Biniray Festival
Held in early January, the province’s very festive celebration begins with a fluvial parade at sea and ends with merrymaking in the streets of the capital.

Pulutan Philippines Cuisine

Pulutan (from the Filipino word pulutin which literally means "something that is picked up") is a term roughly analogous to the English term "finger food". Originally, it was a snack accompanied with liquor or beer but has found its way into Philippine cuisine as appetizers or, in some cases, main dishes, as in the case of sisig.
