Corcuera is a fifth class municipality 34.5 kilometers northwest from Romblon Provincial Capitol. Located on Simara Island, it is named after the Spanish governor-general Sebastián Hurtado de Corcuera who ruled the Philippines from 1635 to 1644 on behalf of King Philip IV of Spain. The island’s name, Simara, was derived from the local word sima, meaning "hook", which refers to how the island looks like. The town boasts an array of unspoiled tourist destinations featuring the refreshingly cool Mainit Spring. Indeed, the town is host to some of Romblon’s remaining natural heritage sites – and coral reefs teeming with diverse marine life.

The Anradoon and Tanruaw peaks  are increasingly becoming a favorite hideaway among locals, balikbayans and tourist most specially on weekends and during vacations. Recently, there is a significant increase in tourist arrivals of foreigners and locals alike, who look forward to a peaceful countryside life either under the sun, sea and sand or up there at a thousand feet above sea level at the very heart of nature.
