Visit Marinduque

Marinduque is an island province of the Philippines located in the MIMAROPA region in Luzon. Its capital is Boac. Marinduque lies between Tayabas Bay to the north and Sibuyan Sea to the south. It is located south and west of Quezon, east of Mindoro, and north of Romblon.

Marinduque is a heart-shaped island situated about eleven miles (18 km) from the main island of Luzon. It is 370 square miles (960 km2) making it the thirteenth largest island in the Philippine archipelago.

Why should you Go?
Marinduque offers much as Boracay or Puerto Galera can. This is also the nearest place from Manila City where you can experience a real escapade / vacation. With several choices of destinations and events, you’ll never regret your decision of dropping by. The locals, Marinduquenos, are hospitable and friendly. Add the great old establishments in the capital of the province and other towns, this place will definitely be a great destination if you love to disocver history and other cultures.

Why Not Go?
If you you are a tourist who wants to experience a great nightlife like bars etc.. the place isn’t for you. Marinduque is a silent and relaxing place good for those who want to unwind while enjoying the natural beauty of nature and culture.
The provincial road is quite rough but it is extended througout the whole island. If you ave a vehicle with you, it might be a good experience to drive around the whole province which you can do in just one (1) day but if you’re not adventurous or inclined to such things it might be not good for you.

When to go?
Best time to visit is during the observance of Lenten Season which starts on the last week of March or the first week of April.
