On our first day on Tablas Island in Romblon, we took a tricycle to Escape Eco Resort on Binucot Beach. It would be our home for the next two nights and turned out to be an incredible base for our adventures and the restaurant we hung out at for dinner each night and breakfast each morning.

The rooms at Escape Eco Resort are awesome thatched bungalows. A fan, power outlets, mirror and a double bed is all that is inside this simple-living style accommodation. The restaurant is in a pirate ship on the beach. That’s how you do it!

Binucot Beach is a beautiful cove with hill viewpoints at either end. Crystal clear water is home to lots of fish and it’s some of the best snorkeling on the island. Palm trees line the road in to Escape Eco Resort and are also plentiful along the shore. In fact, Tablas has an abundance of palm trees and tropical vibes!

Binucot Beach viewpoint adventure

After checking in, we looked up at the sun and figured we had about an hour until sunset. We grabbed our gear and headed over the hill on the right side of the bay. A small path led us up to an old barbwire fence, which we slid underneath. From this point on there was no path and it was just a freestyle adventure. We climbed through vines, battled the ants and bounded over the sharp rocks looking for a nice spot to view Binucot Beach. After some serious work, we managed to climb out onto some rocks and enjoy the view back over Escape Eco Resort and Binucot Beach.

Binucot Beach from the viewpoint

No-one was on the beach and to be honest no tourists were in Tablas at all. We were on the island for five days and the western tourists we saw can be counted on one hand. That’s pretty insane for an island so close to the famous tourist destination of Boracay.

We continued to explore the ocean-side of the Binucot Beach viewpoint and the rocks became to look very familiar. Throughout Tablas, there were many similarities with the famous El Nido. The rocks at Binucot Beach viewpoint were jagged and dramatic just like in Palawan! We trod carefully as we continued our exploration across the hill.

Binucot Beach Viewpoint

Eventually, I found a spot that looked perfect for a little cliff jump. I decided to jump from down low as I wanted to check the height first. It was deep but better to be safe than sorry. I then swam back around the ocean-side of the Binucot Beach viewpoint. I swam through epic slot caves and discovered some amazing little spots. It’s definitely worth snorkeling out on the ocean-side of the hill.

Last light

Finally, I made it back to shore just as the sunset was peaking. My friend and I quickly grabbed our cameras from the beach and shot what turned out to be an epic sunset. The palm trees on the hill are quite unique as they seem to be melting into the ocean. The sunsets in Tablas seem to last for over an hour so you get a lot of time to enjoy the slow-fading beauty of mother nature.

 Binucot Beach Location

Binucot Beach is located on the south-east corner of Tablas Island. We arrived at Odiongon Port and took a tricycle down to Escape Eco Resort at Binucot Beach. We were a group of 3 with luggage and it cost 500 pesos after some negotiating. There were no motorbikes for rent at the port so it was our only option unless we waited for a jeepney after walking into Odiongon Town. There is a turn off from the main road at the village entrance, which leads you along a small cement pathway for a few hundred meters. Once you hit the beach-side road continue for 500 meters until you see the pirate ship and then you have reached Escape Eco Resort at Binucot Beach.
