Romblon Things to Do

  • Ice candy

    Ice candies can be found all over the country not just Romblon. I think. Flavors include coconut, mango, cantaloupe, etc. Condensed milk is mix with the diced, chop, or scraped fruit. It's siphoned on a cellophane. Then put in the freezer. Think of it as the Filipino version of a popsicle.

  • Lambiyong

    Lambiyong are small fish, can be eaten either boiled with I think some vinegar. But I like them fried. With rice, of course. :).

  • Sarsa

    One of my favorite food which is I think only can be found in Romblon because I've ask Filipinos from other provinces and they have never heard of this dish.. Sarsa is made from coconut with chilis and very tiny shrimps caught in the river/streams. It is wrap in a coconut leaf and then boiled. When I go to Romblon, I always eat this. I ask my...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Best Hotel in the heart of the Island. Beautiful garden on top of the 7story building with modern architectural design not far from the rest of the best ones anywhere in the Globe.

    Favorite Dish: Seafood, naturally fresh from the ocean that surrounds the island. Freshness is what matters in most of all tastes.

Romblon Tourist Traps

    by lotharscheer Updated Mar 27, 2011

    The only ATM in Romblon Island is not accepting Mastercard or Cirrus cards, the Bank is changing only US $ (good rate), a grocery shop nextdoor gives very bad rate for Euro, Palawan Pawnshop at the triangular town plaza beside the dock a slightly better rate.

    Unique Suggestions: Bring enough Pesos with you

    If you ever get to Romblon, Romblon try to visit a marble factory. These is where they cut marble blocks to smaller pieces. From the town, hop into a tricycle to a barangay called Cajimos where they have several marble plants (factories). It's probably about 15 minutes away, and the ride to the barangay is a trip in itself where you pass a cemetery...

  • ati-atihan

    This is where the tribes gather before going around the town. This is at the Romblon Natl. High School, and this is also where the tribes performed in the afternoon. Better get in the grandstand of the high school early for a good seat.
