Romblon Province, Philippines

Romblon three major islands are:

1.) Romblon Island, Romblon is one of the three major islands of the Romblon Province in the Philippines; the other two are Sibuyan Island and Tablas Island. It is the site of the provincial capital, also named Romblon. The island is famous for its marble.

2.) Tablas Island, Tablas is the largest island of Romblon Province, Philippines. The island is deeply indented by Looc Bay, in the southern part of the island. Odiongan is the island's major port and largest population center.

3.) Sibuyan Island. Sibuyan is a crescent-shaped island of Romblon Province, Philippines. It has an area of 445 km². The island has two prominent peaks, Mount Guiting-Guiting with a height of 2,058 m and Mount Nailog with a height of 789 m.

The people speak the Sibuyanon dialect of Romblomanon, a Visayan language.

Sibuyan has lived with its isolation from the rest of the world since its birth. Never in its geological history has it ever been connected with any part of the Philippine archipelago. Seismic forces pushed up a 2,000-meter peak from the earth’s crust, forming a series of smaller peaks and slopes. The peak is Mt. Guiting-guiting (literally means "the saw-toothed mountain", in reference to its jagged ridge. And because of the steep slopes, much of its original forest remains untouched), and the rest is the island as we find it today.

Romblon is the country's leading producer of high-quality marble, comparable to that of Italy.
