Carabao Island, Romblon

I and my officemates were in Boracay last week. Dahil andun na din, I thought maybe we can have a side trip at the Carabao Island in Romblon.

We asked our tour guide if he can help us go to the place. It's really biglaan and not in our Boracay itinerary but I wanted to get this chance to set foot in Romblon. Buti na lang our very accommodating tour guide helped us get a boat.

We are 13 in the group and we shelled P500 each for the round trip boat ride. Yeah, I know it may be pricey. Basta inisip ko na lang, di naman ako makakapunta sa Romblon sa halagang 500. So push na.

We boarded the boat at the Puka Beach. From there, it took us 20 minutes to reach the island.

And then..







The water was pristine and clear. It's not super cold and I really enjoyed swimming. Aside from the 3 kids from that area, we had the beach for ourselves. It was nice to be away from the busy shoreline of Boracay. Kung kasama ko nga lang ang jowa e baka naghabulan pa kami diyan dahil solong-solo namin ang lugar. Ahihihi.

Carabao Island (also known as Hambil to the locals) is like the 'old Boracay', so they say. I liked the serenity and the laidback feel.

I wish we had plenty of time to roam the area. Tinamad na lang kami talaga mag-motor para mag-explore. Well, nag-enjoy naman kami from where we're at.

Konting upgrade lang siguro sa lugar and sobrang OK na. I dont wish it to be like Boracay though, but a little 'development' wont hurt. :)

So there.
