EXPLORE BOHOL – A TRULY AMAZING ISLAND

Bohol, Philippines is one of the fastest growing travel destinations in Asia. It’s an island paradise that has it all, including three world heritage sites on the UNESCO tentative list: the world’s famous Chocolate Hills, the 18th Century Baroque Church complex of San Pedro Apostol (a.k.a Loboc Church), and the ancient Anda Peninsula Petrographs. It’s also home to one of the smallest known primates – the Tarsier – found in the well-preserved and dedicated sanctuary.

Diving in Bohol

Pristine turquoise waters – might be a bit of exaggeration for some. But that’s a fact for locals and discerning travellers who have dived (up to 20-30 meters below for visibility) and were captivated by the colourful coral reefs. Anda peninsula is home to one of the healthiest fringing reefs in the world and offers you pleasurable experiences in paradisiacal conditions.

The reef is rich with marine fauna and colourful coral gardens, and it is said to be 14 KM long with 20 dive sites. It’s home to over 915 different fish and over 460 hard and soft corals – a feast for your eyes only. Your underwater experience wouldn’t be complete without the 3-5 mm small pygmy seahorses and resident turtles and if you’re lucky, a Thresher shark and even the biggest fish of them all, the Whale Shark might want to accompany you and give you a swimming lesson. Locals think this big fish is making Anda its second home.

You may want to book dolphin or whale watching tours with island hopping adventures in Bohol thrown into the mix. But sometimes, whilst enjoying an al fresco breakfast at your private luxury villa, you might spot a pod of dolphins playing offshore along with the fishermen, returning to the land with their daily catch.

Ecoutourism

Morphing into one of the best Great Outdoors of the Philippines, this is where sand meets the sun and fun. Bohol is fast becoming the adventure playground for the adrenaline junkies, wanderlusts, and daredevils alike. With its green mountains, valleys, virgin caves, stunning waterfalls, beautiful rice terraces, mangroves and tall mahogany forests, nature itself is calling thrill-seekers for the most awaited treat they will never forget.

There are endless recreational activities for you – mountain biking, hiking, cave exploration, stand up paddle boarding in wild rivers as if you’re transported into the Amazon world, ATV, buggy tours, ziplining the Chocolate Hills or above the Loboc River – along with a host of other “heart in your mouth” adventures to finally cross off experiences on your bucket list.

Historical places in Bohol

Travel back in time and explore the 20th century Spanish homes and some of the best-preserved coral stone churches of the Philippines dating back as far as the 16th century. On the shores of Tagbilaran City, the Blood Compact Site represents the first ever friendship treaty between Asia and Europe. The tower in Mt. Carmel Hill is like a sentinel that guards the town and is made up of adobe and limestone.

There are a lot of things to do in Bohol and list of historical sites could go on. The authenticity of its diversity proves that you have a complete island destination choice in the Philippines.

Visit white sand beaches

Bohol is always on the bucket list of nature lovers, whether they’re looking for land tours or water activities. There are hidden and unadulterated places yet to be explored. The powder white sand beaches only to be found around the Anda Peninsular and Panglao Island are as good (if not better) as those in the “World’s Top 10 Beaches” headlines (but let’s keep that our secret).
