Alona Beach, Bohol

The famous Alona Beach, on the south-west tip of Panglao Island, is a one and a half kilometer long stretch of coral white sandy beach where resorts and dive centers, restaurants and souvenir shops alternate. It is the most developing beach in Bohol and now one of the top tourist destinations in the Philippines.

Panglao Island is directly connected with the main island Bohol with its famous majestic Chocolate Hills and the cute bug-eyed tarsiers. But to round up the picture of Bohol we have to add the jungle interior, an adventure sport paradise, rice terraces and the different beaches.

This combination of Panglao Island with its fantastic diving and Bohol’s land attractions makes the area to a great location for your vacation.
