Best of Bohol Beaches

Bohol has some of the best beaches in the Philippines.

Panglao, Bohol Beaches

Panglao Island Beaches are now the favorite destination of tourists, local and foreign alike.  Many are lured to the island because of the white sand, the cool crystal blue waters, and the world-famous surrounding dive sites.   The visitors stay, and some even for good, just for the tranquil ambiance of the place.

Panglao Island is divided into two municipalities: Panglao and Dauis.  There are beaches in Dauis as well as in Panglao town.  Beaches of Panglao town are: Alona Beach, Doljo Beach, Momo Beach, Bolod Beach, Bagobo Beach and Danao Beach in the barangays of Tawala, Doljo, Tangnan, Bolod, Libaong and Danao respectively.  Beaches of Dauis are in barangays Bingag, Dao, and Biking.

Alona Beach, an 800 meter stretch of white powdery sand, in the south of Panglao Island, is south west of Bohol and only 18 kilometers or 30 minutes away from Tagbilaran City, the one and only city of the province. There are many full-service beach and dive resorts reside in Alona Beach. Dive tours to Balicasag and Pamilacan Islands, famous dive spots, can be arranged.

Bolod Beach is located at barangay Bolod and situated on the south side of the island, about two and a half kilometers east of Alona Beach. The beach has a one and a half kilometer stretch of white sand, the largest shoreline in the area. 

Doljo Beach is located at Barangay Doljo, Panglao Island. It lies on the northwest side of the island and at its very tip. 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.

There are no resorts as yet at Momo Beach.

Bagobo Beach is located at Barangay Libaong, Panglao, Panglao Island. It is a beach with very fine white sand and fringed by tall coconut palm trees and other tropical varieties. The water is crystal clear and reveals an underwater world of such beauty that made divers and snorkelers come back from time to time bringing in their friends and acquaintances.
