What time of year is best to visit the Romblon?
Given the fact that Romblon belongs to a tropical country, its weather is relatively warm throughout the year, and sea breezes temper the heat for most of the year round.
Looking at the weather, the average temperature ranges from 80° F to 95° F (27° C – 35° C), with the most activity during the rainy season. The weather does not differ that much from one month to another, but here are some similarities:
There are only two seasons to worry about throughout the year: the dry season (May to November) and the rainy season (December to April). The dry season usually starts in May.
During the dry season, most activity and tourism happens in coastal areas such as Tablas and Sibuyan island. While this is not a bad thing per se, it may be better if you go sightseeing. Water adventures such as snorkeling or diving are the best choices during this time.
If you choose to go sightseeing during the rainy season, expect most of the activities to be on land. Heavy rains occur a few times a year in parts of Romblon Sibuyan Island (mid-August), and Tablas (end of August). Luckily, you won’t have to worry about storms as long as you are in the lowlands.
This is not to say that you can relax your guard. Storms are possible at any time in some areas; be prepared at all times. It’s best that you do not visit the highlands—for obvious reasons.
