    Various Beach Resorts in Panglao Island offer beach parties but the most popular area of the Island to hold Beach parties and Hawaiian Luau's will be the Bohol Beach Club Resort as is has the widest beach front area and is ideal for Hawaiian Luau's. Besides having conventions from different companies and groups, the resort also does their own Beach parties and Luau's from time to time. Feast on various fresh and grilled seafoods and have brewskies while on a luau party.

    Swim at the Beach!

    by machomikemd Updated Aug 30, 2014

    Alona Beach is not as congested as Boracay Island and you can have more beach space here than in Boracay. Be sure to get your water proof smart phone or waterproofed enclosed smart phone or waterproof camera or even a go pro camera while swimming at this wonderful beach to get your precious selfies.

    Panglao Island of Bohol Province is becoming world famous and is a rival to Boracay Island as having powdery and clear white sand beaches that stretches for miles. The beach sits mostly in the Alona Area of the Island of which the white sand beach with the blue-green sea has areas of house reefs (of which you can view the fishes and the beatiful corals at shallow snorkelling depths). The Beach host a large number of Hotels, Resorts, Bars, Restaurants, Spa's of whatever Budget. Alona Beach is about 12 kilometers away from Tagbilaran City and Airport

    Don't Miss The Sunset!

    by cyndymc Written Jul 24, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We walked towards the far end of Bohol Beach Club to watch and take pictures of the sunset. Sunset at Panglao is one of the most beautiful sunsets I've seen. The sunburst of colors after the sun has set is even more awesome.

    See Dumaluan Beach Resort's Mini-Zoo

    by cyndymc Written Jul 24, 2009

    If not for a talking bird, I wouldn't have discovered Dumaluan Beach Resort's mini-zoo. The mynah kept saying "Nagkaon ka na" (local dialect meaning "Have you eaten")? So as I looked for the source of the tiny voice, I discovered the mini-zoo at DBR's courtyard.

    Enjoy The Azure Sea & Fine White Sand at Dumaluan

    by cyndymc Updated Jul 24, 2009

    Words are not enough to describe the azure sea and fine white sand at Dumaluan Beach. The sea water is so clean with some sporadic seaweeds in some areas, and the white sand is so fine that you can walk barefooted on the beach. However, on the farther right side of Bohol Beach Club, there are some coral stones on the shore, so you have to wear beach footwear. I noticed that many tourists booked at the Alona side and Bohol Bee Farm went for day tours at Dumaluan Beach Resort and Bohol Beach Club. According to some people I talked to, their hotel/beach resort is beautiful, but the beach is not "swimmable".

    Nearby Panglao Church is the Panglao Watch Tower which is a 5-storey bell tower built of cut stone in 1851. Octagon in shape and covered by a pitched roof, it is said to be the tallest of its kind in the Philippines.

    Public Beach in Panglao

    by DarleneCMF Written Jul 6, 2006

    Bohol Beach Club has both private and public beaches. We went to the public beach in May 2003, and although there were a number of people there, it was still a good place. The best public beach I've been to.

    You see and interact with the real Boholanos here, unlike the commercial resorts where most of the people are visitors.

    ***I read somewhere in the Internet (post as of Jan 2006) that the BBC public beach was closed for repairs. Have to check what the updates are.

    Snorkeling in Panglao

    by DarleneCMF Written Jul 6, 2006

    This was the scariest snorkeling experience I've ever had. It's unlike Puerto Galera or Anilao where the water is shallow and you can see the seafloor... In Panglao, you can actually see the edge of the landmass, then it's very deep waters - dark and you can't see the bottom.

    But it was enjoyable nonetheless. There were lot of fish variety in different colors.

    if you want to do nothing

    by izar Written Mar 15, 2005

    the place to go to do nothing is called alona beach in panglao island. the ride from the capital, tagbilaran, is only 20 minutes by taxi.
    the prices have to be decided before departing to your destination.
    the beach is nice and the weather is the best.
    the food is fresh and cooked to my taste.
