Where’s Mindoro?

Mindoro is (apparently) the seventh-largest island in the Philippines – which isn’t bad going when you consider there’s over 7,000 in total!

The map below shows where Mindoro is in relation to Batangas (Luzon) and Coron (Palawan). As you can see, Mindoro is perfectly positioned as the gateway to the stunning province of Palawan. There is also a Fastcat boat service now going from Bulalacao (highlighted) to the immensely popular Boracay Island. Within a day you can reach either of these fantastic destinations.

Looking for accommodation in Sablayan?

Stay at our fabulous beachfront B&B here in Sablayan for just 999 Philippine pesos a night, including breakfast for two people (that’s like £15/$18). You can experience the many attractions Sablayan has to offer, such as Pandan Island, Apo Reef and the world’s longest island-to-island zipline.

Our B&B is your home away from home here in the Philippines and the perfect base while you check out the local area.

See the epic sunset picture at the top of this page? That was taken from our balcony one afternoon…

Sablayan Penal Colony: the Perfect Family Day Out

So... I promised my wife that we'd go somewhere this weekend and not just stay in the house, like we usually do. Imagine her uncontrollable excitement when I said we were going to go to the local sub prison and penal farm, with our 18-month-old daughter! I know it...

Filipino Cuisine: My Favourite Oxymoron

It's been almost a bloody month since I posted anything here and that is absolutely not on. Going forward, I'll aim for one post every Sunday, unless something more important like beer gets in the way. To be fair, I'd intended to publish a post on the night of my...
