How to get to Carabao Island in Romblon

Going to Carabao Island White Beach in Romblon from Boracay and Caticlan:

Ride a ferry boat in Boracay dock at Barangay Manoc-Manoc (southermost tip of boracay) this is near from the station 3. Just double check with the locals. There is one boat daily bound for Hambil Island or Carabao Island (San Jose is the sunrise coast of Hambil Island) until 8:30 a.m. This boat trip will cost you 60 pesos and 1 hour travel time! These daily boats will sail back to caticlan the following day at 6:00 am (not on the same day). Caticlan-Hambil Island and vice-versa routes both pick up passengers in boracay (if you're from Boracay and you wanna go to Hambil Island, you don't need to backtrack to Caticlan Port, just wait at that southern port). From both east and west coasts of Hambil Island are just 30 minutes habal habal rise away from each other, just stayed at the east coast, the sand and the views are much better there!Carabao Island Contact Person and Numbers: Mr. Hilario Bandala:  63915 770 5158. He runs the resort by the east coast! P200 pesos per cottage per day! or check with Mr Arvil: 63927 701 4050. Tourism Officer of Carabao Island in San Jose, Romblon Province. Happy Travels!

Carabao Island White Beach in Romblon Province

Carabao Island in Romblon is the nearest white beach escapade in Boracay Island, Malay Aklan. Some of my friends wanted to go there but I been traveling solo at this time, as a part of my first year blog anniversary. The area is covered with pure white sand, blue water and coconut trees along the shorelines, best for a solo traveling and couple because of quiet ambiance. This island is also known as "Hambil Island" by local. One problem you will notice are the strong current and no hospital if you get drawn. As far I know it was part of Aklan Province before and the people spoke the same with cCatiklanon and Boracaynon as per my uncle who lives in Aklan. Let's just hope that Carabao Island will stay as a virgin island which has the best white beach resort in the province of Romblon.I don't hope that it will be the same as boracay.
