Located on a hilltop at the southern part of Boracay Island, "Lingganay" (bell) for Aklanons may sound music to the ears. History tells that Lingganay was named after a bell-like shaped stone found in the place’s cave. This cave and its small hidden beach has been known as Lingganay ever since it was found by the island’s inhabitants many centuries ago.

Lingganay Resort offers high quality residential units for those seeking a luxury lifestyle at its best. From the big common rooftop terraces, one can enjoy a stunning 360-degree view of Boracay and nearby islands.

Be windswept by its opulence and natural charm.

But costs of units are as breathtaking as its infinity pool:

The place is exclusive for residents and guests only.

But There Are No Carabaos in Carabao Island

Carabao Island, also known as Hambil, is one of the not so well-known gems of Romblon, perhaps because of its proximity to Boracay, where tourists mainly go.

But I guess this is what makes the island more appealing to me. Less crowd means a perfect hide-away. And this trip would have not been possible without Jai who knew someone from the island.

I really fell in love with Hambil the moment I set foot on the island. I mean common, even without carabaos (water buffalos), the island is a slice of paradise.

Carabao Island can be reached via one-hour boat ride from the port in Caticlan, Malay, Aklan. The passenger boat usually leaves in the morning. The most convenient way to go to the island is via boat rental from Boracay, which if course charges higher especially if you are just travelling alone.
