Tablas Island and its Resorts
Tablas Island, with all its resorts, belongs to the province of Romblon in the MIMAROPA region, is a sparsely populated natural tourist destination in the Philippines. Lying at 50km east from the south of Mindoro Island and about 12 near Romblon Island, its geography is that of hills of inland peaks, most of the time untouched by human hands. Locals and visitors alike can enjoy pristine natural views of waterfalls, forests, mountains, and caves; with Tablas being the road far-less travelled – especially when compared to Boracay – there remain a multitude of organic adventures that have yet to be encountered.
Its shores remain one of its best attractions, with its beautifully white beaches and its clear, blue waters. Around it is a fair share of Tablas Island resorts, although not so much that they feel suffocating. There are just enough for people to choose from.

What Tablas Has to Offer
Enjoy the might of the lands’ waters as it cascades from one point to another – a truly rare yet powerful sight that will leave you breathless. There are many waterfalls in Tablas, some of which are the Mainit Falls, the Dubduban-Bita Falls, and the Mablaran Falls.
What would Tablas be without its beaches? Fine, white sand and turquoise waters await those who would visit it – as well as wide, open spaces that are uninhabited by other people. There’s a sense of peace and tranquility about the place that is simply unmatched by other public beaches where tourists crown the area and loud noises are common.
Because Tablas is such an untouched place, wildlife abounds within its borders. A wide variety of both flora and fauna can be seen all around; there are even species endemic to the island itself. The Tablas Fantail, the Tablas Drongo, and the Tablas Bulbul are only some of the many species that can be found there. In addition, its waters are not to be outdone – a spectrum of tropical fish – some of which you can even swim with when diving – are also available for viewing. Other creatures such as manatees, sea turtles, and dolphins are also around for you to enjoy!
