The name of the island is derived from the Filipino term for hat, and the island has an iconic rock formation that looks same with cowboy’s hat.
It was lunch time when our boat arrived at the shores of Sombrero Island from Animasola Island. Sombrero island is a private island and there is an entrance fee of 20 Php. Camping is the way to go at Sombrero Island, but if you feel you need some more privacy or you’re taking vacation with family there are cottage local called it as “bahay kubo” kind of accommodation for 2,500 Php per night with private bathroom while the simple bamboo cottages worth 700 Php. The island has public toilets enough to serve the travelers.
Waking up in the beautiful island with great people was such a delightful experience. We enjoyed Sombrero Island even at night because of its cool breeze from the ocean. It was really relaxing, the type of vacation we all need and deserve. Kind of Best 2016 Summer Escapade!
We were also told that the islet was, at one point in time, connected to the bigger island where the resort stands until sands were mined for transport to Boracay.
After our whole day island hopping we take our afternoon dip at clear water with white sand and enjoy the sunset at Sombrero Island. We spend the night a’la castaway in Sombrero island to watch the stars as the waves softly rolls and rumbles.
