“Paraiso” (paradise) in the middle of the Philippine archipelago. The Panglao Island beach in Bohol will captivate you with its simplicity. Relax and make time pass by as you walk barefoot along her powdery white sand while enjoying the sea-breeze. Swim, snorkle, dive and just await the sunset for an invigorating day in the Visayas.
This is about 20-30minutes from Tagbilaran City, Bohol’s capital.
When I went here, I just took the jeepney from the terminal near the market. I paid around P25, if I can still remember right. Just be sure to be back by 5pm to the city proper if you are not booked in any of the hotel or guesthouse in the island because public jeepneys are rare in this area.
A 2-day vacation would be great to visit the Chocolate Hills, the world’s smallest primate – Tarsier and have a Loboc River cruise, take some history from Blood Compact Shrine, and say a short prayer at the Baclayon Church and many more.
Bohol, I want to experience you again. I want to run on your roads, sand and trails!
Backpacking Bohol is a must for every Filipino thrill-seeker. Camera is a must too! If you have questions on backpacking, just let me know.
