Tablas Point is one of the best spots for sunset on the Island! On the western part of the southern tip of the island, Tablas Point Resort is a palm tree laden area facing directly west, making it a prime location to wind down at the end of the day as the sky lights up!

How to get to Tablas Point
Tablas Point is located in Santa Fe, in the south of Tablas Island, Romblon. It is on the western side of the island making it a prime spot for sunset. You can reach Tablas Point from both sides of the point. We were coming from Alcantara so we approached from the east coast and wound our way around the point.
The roads proved to be unpaved in many sections and laden with rocks for a bumpy journey but nothing most riders couldn’t handle. Palm trees and the beautiful coastline made the journey a breeze!
The issue with enjoying the sunset at Tablas Point is that it’s a long drive back in the dark to Ferrol or god behold if you are staying in Odiongon or San Andres. It took us over an hour to get back to Escape Eco Resort in Ferrol in the dark, which is something to consider. It’s worth it in my eyes for the sunset but definitely, think about the long drive in the dark if you aren’t a confident driver.
Tablas Point Sunset
From Alcantara, we drove down the east coast and wrapped around the southern tip of Tablas before reaching the west coast and getting our first glimpse of the setting sun. We ended up parking close to the exact point but slightly before because we found an epic little clearing with some palm trees. There are lots of great little spots waiting to be discovered or you can enter the Tablas Point Resort itself for drinks and food.
The palm area we found was something straight out of a Corona ad. Golden hour next to the beach with giant palms towering over us as we parked our bikes right there on the sand. This is what traveling in Tablas is all about. Not a soul in sight either, just a few local kids running about playing games.
The sky ended up lighting up and it was the best sunset of the entire week of our Tablas Island adventure. The ocean at Tablas Point is quite still, which means there were some epic reflections. We also had some find exploring the boats ashore and other places to shoot like huts and netting. This coastline is a great place to adventure and I advise coming well before sunset so you can look around and pick an awesome spot for when the sky lights up!
When we went to leave after the sunset we realized one of our bikes had no lights. It ended up being a slow journey back to Ferrol as we used the light from one moped to shine the way for two. Luckily we made it home safely and all was good!
Tablas Point Resort
It wouldn’t be a bad idea to park yourself at Tablas Point Resort for a few nights if you plan on enjoying this sunset. Rather than having to drive across the island after sunset like us, you can enjoy the show right on your doorstep each night. Palm trees and huts lined the beach all along Tablas Point making it an epic little stretch of coastline to stay for a few nights to get away from everything!
