Looc Bay Marine Refuge and Sanctuary. This award-winning ecotourism site provides sanctuary to a myriad of marine species.

One can watch large schools of fish flit around beneath them in hollow-bottom boats.
Twin Forts of Romblon. Fort San Andres and Fort Santiago compose what is known as the Twin Forts of Romblon – a pair of Spanish fortifications built in 1644 to protect the town from invaders. In 2013, the site and its imposing stone walls was declared a National Cultural Treasure by the National Museum of the Philippines.
Mt. Guiting Guiting. Scale Romblon’s highest mountain and see Sibuyan Island from over 6,750 feet above sea level. The mountain is marked by jagged peaks that nurture a level of biodiversity comparable to that of the Galapagos Islands’.
Cantingas River. The sea isn’t the only body of water you can explore in Romblon. Cantingas River in Sibuyan Island is known for its stark cleanliness. The water is so clean that the island gets most of its water from the river. It is also a popular cliff-jumping site.
