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.
Sapatos Point derived its name from “Sapatos” that means shoe for the rock formation looks like one. Best seen when it is low tide, the rock formation shows its true form. The heel of the rock forms a cave one can pass through. During high tide, the heels are submerged in water that can be accessible through a kayak. There is an old lighthouse near the rock formation that offers a bird’s eye view of the shore and the beach and the vegetation around it.
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.
