JOMABO Island Adventure

Jomabo Island is located in Escalante, Negros Occidental. You have to rent a motorboat to reached this beautiful private resort. You will travel through the Barcelona Port in Old Escalante, Escalante, Negros Occidental, Philippines. There is a lot to explore in this beautiful Island of Negros.


I came to reach Jomabo Island when our team had a work in Escalante and we heard about this beautiful island and we decided to go there for a short visit. Escalante is where the Danao Port is located where one could go to Cebu just about an hour or so.

If you want a less congested island getaway, one of the perks of going to this place is the privacy and less traffic. About forty minutes travel by boat from the Barcelona Port in Old Escalante.

To reach Escalante , one can ride a bus or a mini bus from Bacolod City North Terminal.

Through bus, the travel time would take about 2 hours North of Bacolod City in Negros Occidental. From Barcelona port, you could rent a pump boat. Ours costs is P1500.00 for a two way trip already. The boat will wait for you. But if you want to do overnight stay, cottages are available in this beautiful island.

The sunset is so beautiful in this island. The sea, the shells, coral debris, I love it. For me, the island being quite isolated makes it less exploited and still not much exposed to tourist.

Make sure you bring your picnic food as there is no abundance of things to buy here. Although you can order some fish to be broiled for you at a reasonable price.
