Overview

La Estrella Beach Resort Bohol is another resort that the Boholanos can be proud of. Native facilities and modern amenities can compete with those resorts in Panglao Island. It boasts of the same white sandy beach and crystal clear, unpolluted waters and is also accessible to the other tourist spots of Bohol.

The advantage is that the island is small and secluded and less populated. It is not connected to the main island of Bohol, as Panglao is, so people traffic is nil. It is a very peaceful place, far from the “madding crowd”, a place where you can really relax and commune with nature. Coupled with good food and efficient yet discreet service, total rejuvenation of self can be achieved.
