La Playa de Roxas, or Baybay beach as it is commonly called by the locals, faces the Sibuyan Sea and belongs to the Western Visayas Region, at the northeastern portion of Panay Island which neighbors Aklan, Antique, and Iloilo. Roxas city is the capital of Capiz province which has a population of 167,003 based on the 2015 statistics.

Baybay beach is a favorite tourist spot of local residents on weekends. The beach’s gray sand of 7 kilometers long boasts its charm through the night, setting its shores with ample visitors from nearby towns served by the neighboring restaurants that cater sea foods and other cuisines of reasonable prices which are a come-on for visiting local friends and foreign guests.

Your moments become more appealing, glamorous and romantic as you stroll on the shore at night. It could be made enjoyable seeing various activities in sight, like, fishing and having some lovely conversations with the local gentle people.

A group of fishermen drop their net at the beach before the onset of darkness…


As the catch grows in numbers, these men gather their strength together pulling the net as it slowly nears the sand bed on shore…

Getting their acts together, darkness gets closer as the net of fishes nears the beach's sands...
Getting their acts together, darkness gets closer as the net of fishes nears the beach’s sands…
In addition to the day’s take, a boat with their catch arrives to unload…


Then the night falls in silence…

  1. It seems like they are pulling out the boat but your picture reminded me of one of my own in México. The fishermen were positioned like those in your picture but they were fishing with a procedure they call “tarraya” or something like that, it´s a big net that requires joint effort. Nice pic! Regards!
