Romblon Islands Philippines
Romblon Special Interest
Mt. Guiting-Guiting is the highest peak in Romblon. It is considered to be among the more formidable mountains in the country. Rising a little more than 6,000 feet above sea level, its rugged terrain presents a challenge, which lures mountaineers to scale its peak. This mountain 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. Once in Magdiwang, inform the Mayor’s Office of your climb. The office provides assistance to climbers.
Make a circling tour covering the historic Fort San Andres, the beaches of Look and Odungan, a fisherman’s boat ride to Sta Fe, a swim at the pebbled beaches of Alcantara, and the capital island where a sweeping view of the province from the hilly terrains may be had. Include a trip to San Agustin where one can view the seven-tiered falls of Dubduban-bita and an observation cruise off the shore of Tablas in Calatrava. Here, take a spellbinding look at the menancing big boulders of Romblon, looking like titans from out of the deep, which guard the entrance to the bay.
Swimming is fun at Romblon, particularly along the foamy beachwaters of Logbon with its powdery white sands, and the beaches of Cobrador Island and Alad.
Diving enthusiats will find the underwater of Calagunsao Beach in Alcantara as well as the ocean floor of San Jose a storehouse of experience. Here, the big black boulders common only in Romblon surround the coastline of the province, like mighty walls of a medieval port.

Desserts Food, Philippine Cuisine
As a tropical oriental country it should come as no surprise there are many treats made from rice and coconuts. One often seen dessert is bibingka, a hot rice cake optionally topped with a pat of butter, slices of kesong puti (white cheese), itlog na maalat (salted duck eggs), and sometimes grated coconut. There are also glutinous rice sweets called biko made with sugar, butter, and coconut milk.
