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…

Wow! Almost a whole month since I last wrote anything here. I feel like a naughty kid who has some explaining to do after maiming a family pet. However, there's a very good reason why I've been, let's face it, f*****g slack recently. But while many of you will be...read more
Good evening from the small island of Mindoro in the Philippines; one of 7,107 islands that make up this beautiful archipelago. Although, I have heard on numerous occasions, that there are sometimes only 7,105 islands at any one time here due to the tides. Either way,...read more
