Romblon, which is the name of the island and the town, is one of three main islands in this group located in the Sibuyan Sea and Tablas Strait. Its strategic position made it an important way station on the sailing lanes between Manila and the Visayas.

The Spaniards visited Romblon as early as 1582. The ruins of Spanish watchtowers and forts testify to the islands' vulnerability to the raids of slave-seeking Moro pirates. Dutch warships also attacked the islands during the early Spanish era. Much later, Romblon became a separate province. Amid beautiful landscapes and seascapes, the island offers beaches, snorkeling and hiking. It is often called Marble Island; the marble deposits form the basis of Romblon's local industry. In fact, the Philippines is the only country in Southeast Asia with commercially viable marble deposits; most of these are in Romblon.
