The Pristine Bonbon Sandbar

One of the highlights of visiting Romblon Island is visiting this spectacular Bonbon Beach.

After a 10-15 minutes tricycle ride from the town proper you are able to find one the most beautiful treasure of Romblon.

This pristine Bonbon sandbar is located in Barangay Lonos, Romblon. When low tide you can fully see the sandbar  which is about 500 meters long. But before reaching the sandbar you should have to walk a long stretch of off white sand. You can see crystal-clear water surroundings while walking the off beaten path to the sandbar. Upon reaching the end of  the white sand such beauty awaits you and will definitely satisfied everything you wish to do. All you can see is the beautiful ocean, the white sand bar, and the sky laying in front of you. You can say its heaven already.
