Doljo Beach is located at Barangay Doljo, Panglao Island. It lies on the northwest side of the island and at its very tip. It is 15 kilometers from Alona Beach; 35 minutes by outrigger boat and 10 minutes away by car.
It is much nearer though to Momo Beach at Tangnan which lies on the same side of the island. The beach is only 20 minutes ride away from Tagbilaran City.
The 3km beach is relatively unexplored and undeveloped, wide and with white sand that stretches so far out and the sea bed slopping gently towards the deep. It is fringed with tall coconut palm trees which add much to its tropical look.
The place is noted for its beautiful and exquisite seashells. With calm, deep and clear waters and the sea bed free of sea grasses plus myriads of colorful marine life, it is a favorite hang-out of local folks.
Some private residences have put up native huts with seats and rent them out to the picnickers. A place where we had our reunion way back in 2005 (sorry but i forgot the name of the resort) had long cement tables and a covered pavilion aside from native huts. Old Talisay trees abound aside from the coconut palm trees.
Further out to the sea of Doljo Beach can be found some beautiful dive spots: the Doljo House Reef and the Doljo Point dive site. Different kinds of corals and multi-colored fishes abound in the area. Diving and snorkelling in the area is a good alternative when the Habagat wind is strong at the Alona side.
The Ananyana Beach Resort is located at Doljo Beach and at its center. It is a new beach resort with a land area of 5,000 square meters. Cottages with room accommodations complete with facilities and amenities are available and are set among flowering gardens with paths that meander through them creating a relaxing and yet rejuvenating atmosphere. Two other resorts situated at Doljo beach are Muro-Ami Seaside and Palm Island Resort.
