Romblon: A beachgoer’s Paradise

Sharing its name with the province, the town of Romblon is a picturesque settlement that gained prominence during Spanish colonial times as a trading post. The island municipality is blessed with natural playgrounds such as beaches, rivers, natural pools and diverse marine ecosystems that offer visitors several opportunities for adventures.

Agpanabat Marine Sanctuary

Romblon has 17 marine sanctuaries, the most popular being Agpanabat Marine Sanctuary and Turtle Rescue Center, just below Apunan Lighthouse.

Various species of corals and anemones cover the seabed and serve as home to colorful schools of fish.

Bonbon Beach and Sandbar

Perhaps the most popular beach destination in Romblon is Bonbon Beach. Just 15 minutes away from the town proper, this marble-white beach is Romblon’s top tourist drawer.

Tiamban Beach

Tiamban Beach is bounded by Nonok Beach and Bonbon Beach on either side, and is a good alternative when the two becomes overly crowded. The idyllic coastline of Tiamban Beach makes for a leisurely getaway.

Nonok Beach

Nonok Beach is a favorite events place among locals. Its main attraction are its various underwater sculptures. You can rent a kayak and paddle your way around Nonok Beach’s mini mangrove forest.

Talipasak Beach

Thirty minutes from Romblon town proper in Talipasak Beach is San Pedro Beach Resort. This privately owned resort is a welcome change from the usually crowded Nonok, Tiamban and Bonbon beaches. One can just sit back and enjoy the view or take a dive and marvel at the diverse marine life.

Libtong Falls and Natural Pool

Off the beaten track, Libtong Falls features a natural pool walled in by bedrocks, best for a refreshing dip. While the falls is not that spectacular, Libtong is a popular destination for thrill seekers wanting to hone their cliff jumping stunts… or, as in our case, just chillaxing and cooling off after a 15-minute trek.

Quipot (or Kipot) River

Twenty minutes downhill from the main highway is Quipot (or Kipot) River. Kipot falls is also a favorite among those who subscribe to the thrills of cliff jumping.

 

 

Smartmatic = Smart Tactic? Not!

Sadly, this post is still relevant.

The War Fish's Lair

Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. But where do the people think these politicians come from? They don’t fall out of the sky. They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from Filipino parents and Filipino families, Filipino homes, Filipino schools, Filipino churches, Filipino businesses and Filipino universities… and they’re elected by Filipino citizens. This is the best we, Filipinos, can do. This is what we have to offer. It’s what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out! If you have selfish, ignorant voters, you are going to get selfish, ignorant leaders.

You see, if politicians are the only souls (granting they have one) to blame, then where are all the other bright people of conscience? Where are all the bright, honest, intelligent Filipinos ready to step in and save the country and lead the way? I tend to believe that we don’t have people like that…
