Cobrador Island, Romblon

“Traveling alone is not lonely. It is being back home with the people who think they know you and realizing they actually don’t which is the loneliness feelings in the world.”

One of my goals when I decided to visit Romblon was to go to Isla Cobrador because of its white fine sand and unexploited beaches. This island has already been featured in local travel shows  but going to the island and exploring its beauty can be the best experience in my life.

Isla Cobrador is one of the islands under the jurisdiction of Romblon, Romblon. There are public boat transportation available through a port in Romblon for php60. Unfortunately, I was not able to get the daily boat schedule going to Cobrador Island since my plan was to visit the islands. I was lucky enough that I had a chance to rent a boat for the island hopping which was only php500. Once you reach are in Romblon, Romblon, you can just go to the port area wherein there are small boats available for island  hopping.

You will need to cross an open water first before you reach the island. It was a bit tough because the waves were big and it was windy even if it was still summer. But I like those moments where you are being challenged by nature and all you can is to accept it. There are also other islands in Romblon before you reach Isla Cobrador such as Logbon and Alad Island.

You will be amazed of the island’s beauty aside from the crystal clear waters. I was fortunate enough that I was just the only one enjoying the beach.  I did not expect that it is more beautiful to personally visit the place rather than watching it on TV. My tour guide Kuya Jessie Menes also gave  a short history of the island.
