Bohol Holidays

The province of Bohol is home to cultural and historical riches dating back to the Spanish colonial era as well as the world-famous Chocolate Hills, the endangered tarsier and the white sand beaches of Panglao Island.

Bohol is surrounded by more than 50 islands, including Panglao Island, a truly beautiful place with pristine white sands, crystal clear waters and an exceptional underwater scene of coral reefs and dive spots. Popular Alona Beach is the most developed resort on the island and lined with a selection of hotels along with lots of dive schools, shops and some good restaurants. Grab a snorkel and swim just a short way from the shore to the house reef and you'll find an incredible world below the waves.

Also on the south of the island is Dumaluan Beach, a more low key resort blessed with a vast expanse of powdery sands and numerous watersports when you feel the need to do more than laze in the sun.

Take a break from the beach and head to Carmen on the main island to tour the surreal Chocolate Hills, more than 1,268 grass-covered limestone domes that are nearly symmetrical in shape and height. The picturesque hills turn a distinct shade of brown during the dry season and resemble mounds of chocolate, hence their name.

At the Philippine Tarsier and Wildlife Sanctuary in Corella, you have the chance to get up close to the tarsier, which at just 3-6 inches tall is the one of the smallest primates in the world. Other nearby attractions include a cruise along the serene Loboc River, the historical architecture of Baclayon and Pamilacan Island for the chance to see dolphins and whales.
