This half-day tour travels around the largest of the 73 islands composing the province of Bohol. Panglao Island is famous for its white-sand beaches, underground caves, old Spanish churches, and watch towers.
Panglao Island is the largest of Bohol Provinces. Connected by a land bridge to the main island, Panglao is just 15 minutes away from the capital city of Tagbilaran. This half-day tour takes you to the Church of our Lady of the Assumption in the town of Dauis. Although the first church of light materials was built as early as 1768, the present stone structure (the Church's 5th incarnation) was built in 1863. With its Gothic architecture, the church is an imposing structure with the sea and watch tower at its back.
Next, we proceed to Hinagdanan Cave, the most easily accessible among the caves of Bohol. Classified as a karst cave, it boasts of a large number of stalactites and stalagmites and leads to an underground spring pool.
From here, we will drive on to Alona Beach, the most famous of Bohol's beaches. It is an 800-meter-long white sand beach dotted with restaurants and resorts. It is also the departure point for many diving and marine tours.
Also enjoy a gourmet organic lunch at the Bee Farm Restaurant during the tour.
