If you are looking for somewhere away overlooking turquoise and blue waters, then Marlin bar Restaurant and resort is probably the best place.
The balcony overlooks the sea between Romblon and Alad islands, with occasional fishing or dive boats. The ground floor below is perhaps the best eatery on the island, popular with the locals too.
The two-room accommodation is run by a Filipino-Australian couple – one room with aircon and one with a fan.
It is located about 15 minutes by tricycle from town. They have a motorbike, snorkels, kayaks etc., for hire once you get there.
It feels like a holiday when you have continental breakfast on your balcony overlooking a patch of blue sea, sipping your fresh banana and mango shakes. Welcome to island life several hours, less than a hundred miles and figuratively a million miles away from commercial Boracay.
