Bonbon Beach, Romblon Sandbar
Romblon has been inhabited by aboriginal Filipinos prior to the arrival of the Spanish in 1569. Archaeological artifacts recovered by the National Museum in 1936 indicate that the aborigines of Romblon already have a rich and advanced culture.
Under Spanish colonial rule, Romblon was initially administered under the newly established province of Arevalo, until 1716, when it was transferred to the jurisdiction of the newly created province of Capiz. With arrival of the Americans in 1901, Romblon was declared a province and placed under civilian rule. It lost its provincial status for a short while between 1907 and 1945, but regained it in 1946, just after World War II.
Just five kilometers from the downtown, Bonbon Beach is perhaps the most beautiful and popular beach in the island. Located in Barangay Lonos, Bonbon is a privately owned white sandy beach on a gradually sloping seafront that stretches up to approximately two kilometers. It is linked to an uninhabited Bang-og Island by a sandbar that is submerged on a knee to chest deep water during high tide.
