A pristine island paradise in the Philippines

Whether you seek relaxation on pristine beaches, thrilling underwater explorations, or a deeper understanding of the Philippines' history and culture, Bohol has it all.

Bohol is a destination that seamlessly blends natural beauty, rich history, and captivating culture.

Bohol is renowned for its natural wonders, and none are more iconic than the Chocolate Hills. These 1,268 conical hills turn a delightful shade of brown during the dry season, resembling a giant box of chocolates. The viewing deck in Carmen is the perfect vantage point to appreciate this natural marvel.

Lush greenery and serene waters await you in the Loboc River, a calm, meandering river where you can take a river cruise. Here, you can eat local cuisine while being serenaded by live music. The nearby Tarsier Conservation Area introduces you to the world's smallest primate, the tarsier, in its natural habitat.

For underwater enthusiasts, Bohol offers incredible marine life, with Alona Beach in Panglao Island serving as a diving and snorkelling hotspot. Vibrant coral reefs and marine creatures make it a favourite among divers.

Beyond its natural beauty, Bohol has a rich historical and cultural heritage. The Baclayon Church, one of the oldest in the Philippines, is a significant historical site. The Blood Compact Shrine in Tagbilaran City commemorates a treaty between Spanish explorer Miguel López de Legazpi and the local chieftain Sikatuna.

Bohol is not just about natural beauty and history; it also knows how to celebrate. The Sandugo Festival in Tagbilaran City, held in July, is a vibrant event that commemorates the historic blood compact. It features colourful parades, street dances, and cultural presentations.

Adventure seekers can indulge in a variety of activities, from zip-lining in the Chocolate Hills Adventure Park to stand-up paddleboarding along Loboc River.

A holiday in Bohol is a journey into the heart of the Philippines, offering a balanced mix of natural beauty, history, culture, and adventure. It's a destination that promises unforgettable memories and experiences, making it a top choice for visitors seeking an island paradise.
