Beaches of Romblon Island

The island of Romblon is blessed with lovely beaches that are away from the usual crowd. Here, you just enjoy the heat of the sun, the white sandy beaches and the clear, calm turquoise waters. What I love most about our recent visit in Romblon are its several beaches with clear and white sandy shoreline that are just a stone's throw away from each other, and very accessible by public transportation from the town proper. Here are some of the must-visit beaches in Romblon, Romblon.

The Beaches of Romblon Island

1. Talipasak Beach

Located in Barangay Ginablan, about 30 minutes away by tricycle from downtown Romblon, Talipasak Beach is a private resort known as San Pedro Beach Resort.

The beach at San Pedro Beach Resort is so lovely and pristine! It has fine white sandy beach that is soft to the feet. One of the most striking features of Talipasak Beach are the towering stone walls teeming with lush greens on both sides of the beach that forms the lovely the beach. The water is clear and calm, ideal for swimming.

2. Bonbon Beach

Located in Barangay Lonos, just 5 kilometers away from downtown Romblon, Bonbon Beach is probably the most popular beach on the island. Frequented by both tourists and locals, one could enjoy about 2 kilometers of white sandy beaches with gradually sloping seafront which makes it an ideal swimming area for kids.

Bonbon Beach

Bonbon beach has no resorts or other commercial amenities which makes it nicer since you'll get to enjoy a beach with less development and still away from commercialization.

Bonbon Beach as seen from the sandbar

One of the most unique features of Bonbon Beach is the sandbar that connects it to an uninhabited Bangug Island. So, if you're going to visit Bonbon, I highly recommended that you schedule your visit during low-tide so you could walk to the sandbar and visit Bang-og Island.

The sandbar to Bangug Island

Unfortunately, it's already high-tide when we visited this beach, so we weren't able to cross the sandbar up to the island. But still, we got to walk to almost the entire strip of the sandbar and just enjoyed the crashing waves coming from the right side and the calm waters on the left side of the sandbar.

We spent about an hour at the sandbar, enjoying the delightful afternoon while basking in the hot breeze. Super enjoy!

3. Margie's Beach

This is a short strip of white sand beach that is really bare and offers quite a peaceful rest to tourists. Located just next to Bonbon Beach, Margie's Beach is separated only by huge rock formations from Bonbon Beach. The beach is not well-maintained; just like Bonbon Beach, there are no structures or resorts in Margie's Beach. But to me, the bareness of this beach makes it more appealing.

Margie’s beach is pristine and calm. Here, one could indulge into snorkeling, swimming, sun bathing and beach combing.

4. Tiamban Beach

If you're looking for a beach with a resort, Tiamban Beach is the best for you. Also located in Barangay Lonos, it is the next beach after Bonbon and Margie’s Beach if you're coming from the town proper.
