Looc Bay Marine Refuge and Sanctuary News
A slice of our recent trip in Romblon, a province in Luzon. Tourism-wise, the place is yet to be discovered. In 4 days, we saw Cathedral Cove and San Jose Beach in Carabao Island, Bonbon Beach in Romblon, Akim's Haven in Alcantara, and Looc Fish Sanctuary in Tablas. Be warned though. The place is definitely for the allocentric!
Looc Marine Sanctuary on Tablas Island, Romblon, is one of the longest standing tourism attractions on the island. It was established in 1999 and is home to more than 100 different species of fish and sea creatures. Tourism is still pretty low key on Tablas Island today so its pretty amazing that the sanctuary was started in 1999.

Maybe it's how everything gleams in sunshine??"as if the sun is actually teasing us to go out; or maybe it's the warm weather giving us all the happy feels. For whatever reason, during summer, everyone wants to break loose and look for adventure: Going on a road trip to Tagaytay just because they felt like it, hitting the beach to get away from the city, or even booking last-minute plane tickets to anywhere in the world. If you're one of these super spontaneous souls, READ ON because we want you to ge ...
Tuburan Falls ("Bosay")
Our first destination was a falls located in the innermost part of Brgy Tuburan, Odiongan. Locals are calling this place as "Bosay", which means falls in their dialect. The waterfall is an easy 30 to 45 minutes walks from the jump-off (the first stream) in a 1-3 trail class. There are series of stream crossings (around 5) and few rocks climbing (near the basin).
The waterfall has several layers and some of its portions are deep. At the top of the first layer, there is a hidden basin. The place is not yet crowded. During our visit, we did not encounter other ...
