The essence of the Philippines in a tranquil and stunning setting.

Panglao, a small island located in the Philippines, is a hidden gem that offers a tranquil escape for travellers seeking pristine beaches, vibrant marine life, and natural beauty .

Nestled in the heart of the Visayas region, this paradise is an idyllic destination for an unforgettable holiday.

Alona Beach, the most popular destination on Panglao Island, boasts powdery white sand, crystal-clear waters, and a vibrant atmosphere. Whether you're sunbathing, swimming, or enjoying water sports, this beach caters to all your coastal desires.

Panglao is renowned for its underwater wonders. Dive enthusiasts can explore the colourful coral reefs of Balicasag Island and Pamilacan Island. Don a snorkel and mask to witness the thriving marine life at sites like Doljo Point and Garden Eels. Panglao's strategic location provides easy access to various nearby islands. Enjoy island-hopping tours to explore hidden coves, caves, and untouched beaches. Dolphin-watching tours and encounters with friendly whale sharks in nearby Oslob are also popular activities.

The Hinagdanan Cave, a hidden underground gem, is adorned with mesmerizing stalactites and an emerald lagoon. The man-made Bohol Bee Farm is a paradise for nature lovers and offers organic farming tours.

Panglao comes alive with cultural celebrations. The Kadayawan Sa Panglao Festival in August showcases local traditions, with street dancing and a colourful parade. Enjoy traditional music and dance performances or join the locals in their festivities.

Indulge in the local food of Panglao at various seaside and garden restaurants. Try seafood dishes, such as kinilaw and grilled squid. The locally produced calamay, a sweet delicacy, is a delightful treat.

Panglao is also a place for tranquility and wellness. Many resorts offer spa treatments and yoga sessions, allowing you to rejuvenate your body and mind amidst the island's serene ambiance.
