A nurse left a lucrative job in Australia and built a Sunflower Farm in San Andres and lives a quiet life in Romblon. The farm has the largest sunflower maze in the country measuring 1.5 hectares with stalks that are five feet tall and blooms as big as a plate. The farm holds its annual sunflower festival when the maze is in full bloom in June. The 3-hectare farm also offers other crops and promotes mechanized farming.
Hidden inside the dense forest, the Pag-alad caves are the hidden limestone caves and undiscovered treasures of San Andres. They are interconnected caves with three entrances. The caves have small openings that leads to large and multiple chambers that are home to the bats and stalactites and stalagmites. The caves used to be a place where Catholic masses are being held during the Spanish era and also served as a hiding place for villagers during the Japanese invasion.
Mablaran Falls is probably the favorite summer destination of people in Tablas Island. Entering the Mablaran Falls, there is a huge pool that was built to hold the freezing water just like a reservoir. The water comes naturally from the mountains in the Calsanag area. Beneath the 15 feet waterfall, the river runs 4 to 5 yards deep and there are shallow areas embedded with smooth rocks. The rocks surrounding the river are low enough and some locals are using them as diving platforms. The local government also added cottages and tables for picnics of families and friends.
