Bohol is the tenth largest island in the Philippines. The beaches on the island are quite unique in that they are made up of broken coral, not sand. This means that your feet will stay cool even when walking on the beach under the hot sun. The beaches are a pure white and the sea is surrounded by lush greenery. There’s a lot to do on Bohol, and the island is home to an ancient church, the Blood Compact Monument, and the world’s smallest monkey - the tarsier. In addition, Bohol is also a diver’s paradise. Visitors can rent oxygen and hire an instructor, then take a boat out to sea and dive among the coral and schools of fish.
Bohol is 70 kilometers away from Mactan, Cebu. Balicasag Island is southwest and Panglao Island is located to the south. On the northeast of Pangang Island is the world-famous Alona Beach. Near Carmen in the middle of Bohol are the Chocolate Hills and the Loboc River. The Tarsier Visitors Center is also located on the bank of the river.
It is cool and dry in January and February, making it the best season for tourism. As it is an island, however, Bohol is still relatively cool at night. Bohol’s rainy season usually lasts from July to October. Due to the occasional typhoons from October to December, there is usually plenty of rainfall and visitors should check weather forecasts before making any major plans. Hotels in Bohol are mainly on Arona Beach on Panglao Island, and there are multiple methods of transportation to reach both of these places. There are also many mid to high-end hotels along the coast of the island which generally have their own private beaches. Visitors can also consider staying at some of the resorts on Pamilacan Island, but the facilities there are relatively basic.
