  1. I absolutely love Panglao! We've been to Danao Beach (the first time we visited Bohol) and Alona Beach (second time). When our son is older, we'll be going back to Bohol - surely, we'd still stay at least 1 night in Panglao once again :)

  2. I love the relaxing setting at Panglao and the islands near them.

  3. i've never been to pagao island but i think it's like boracay, will consider this place soon!

  4. bolo beach and danao beach would be nice to go and visit next time around!! iwould love to just sit down or stay on a hammock for the whole day and relax!

  5. I didn't know there are lots of beaches in Panglao. I've only been to the beach where Bohol Beach Club is located and on what beach does it belong?

  6. I have never been to Panglao Island but the beaches you mentioned here are enough reasons to visit.

  7. I have not been to any of these beaches in the Visayan region. Traveling to Bagobo beach, I think, would be ideal if with friends. The shores and water look pristine and I hope that it stays like that in the coming years. :)

  8. Beaches like these in Panglao Island are very refreshing to look more so to visit and have even a brief stay away from the busy streets of the Metro.

  9. I've been to Bohol twice now and have already visited Panglao. Yet I never got the chance to visit all the beaches mentioned above. The only beach that I got to try was the one in Dumaluan and by Bohol Bee Farm :)

  10. Great beaches specially Alona Beach.. some friends who have visited the place say 'parang Boracay' daw. Totoo kaya..that is for me to know, puntahan ko yan.

  11. Alona and Momo beach are the best! Been to Bohol in 2009 and 2011, Sarap balik-balikan. Bohol is a full pack destination- nature, people, and Spots!

  12. Bohol beaches are indeed enchanting even in photos. I do hope this year my family and I can finally travel to Bohol after I missed my supposed March vacation with friends.

  13. I've heard that Bohol is home to many beautiful beaches. I hope to visit Bohol soon as well even in off-peak season.

  14. When I read Danao Beach and Dive spot, I was like...whoaaahhh I like to go there!!!!.... The last time I dived was 2 years ago, haha.

  15. I miss Panglao (Especially Alona). I hope we could take Marien there soon probably at BBF. ^_^

  16. Alona beach is a bit crowded specially during peak season :(. actually we tried to avoid if we really want to just enjoy and relax for most of our stay in Bohol.

  17. Alona beach is a taker.. Unfortunately, it is too developed for my taste.. with the many foreighners frolicking in the area.
    Its a great place to witness sunset though. :)

  18. I Love the look of Danao Beach, it looks so enticing. It looks the most tropical and I think I am going to add this to my list of places to visit.

  19. Alona Beach looks promising. Will definitely visit it some time soon.

  20. I love Bohol and its beaches. Lastly, I hope that earthquakes don't strike Bohol again and tourism increased in this beautiful Island.
