Panglao Things to Do

  • Don't Miss The Sunset!

    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

    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.

  • Starfishes Galore

    It's amazing how so many live starfishes can be seen at Dumaluan Beach. I haven't seen anything like it, even at Boracay. At Dumaluan Beach, you can almost step on them if you're not watching.

  • Enjoy The Azure Sea & Fine White Sand at...

    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...

  • Don't Miss Panglao Watch Tower

    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.

  • Visit The Panglao Church

    Pass by the centuries old Panglao Church to take pictures of the historical and architectural details of the church and of course, to thank God for your safe trip. See related post on Panglao Church at my Bohol Page

  • Public Beach in Panglao

    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...

  • Snorkeling in Panglao

    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...

  • if you want to do nothing

    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.


Panglao Transportation

  • V-Hire

    From the Tacloban City Airport, we reached Panglao via a van (locals call it V-hire) provided by our tour coordinator, Rj Intano. Normally, transpo expenses from the airport to Panglao can be anywhere from P400-500, depending on the type of vehicle you hire. But since we booked a Panglao Island Tour, we were picked up from the airport and brought...

  • use a local driver and his car

    for getting around in the island, is best to talk to a local and decide on the price for so many hours. make sure you address the fact that the gasoline price is included. we used a driver for a day and paid 30$, he drove a van therefore we all had enough room7 and the driver. better if you use an AC car since it gets humid during miday.

Panglao Warnings and Dangers

  • Scratch/Shock From Monkey

    Please don't leave your child unattended at the mini-zoo. It is a common sight to see tourists giving the monkey something to eat so it will come near them. The monkey grabs the food so fast, his hands could scratch/shock the child.

  • Sharp Coral Stones!

    The white sand at Dumaluan Beach is so fine, many are tempted to walk barefooted on the cold sand, with the wave occasionally splashing on one's legs. Because of this pleasurable walk on the beach, it is common for beachcombers to forget their slippers/sandals/marine shoes at the resort's beachfront. Be forewarned that though the sand infront of...

  • regarding prices

    on any person you hire: driver, nanny, a washer, cook... that applies to the whole Philipines, you need to agree on the price and address that the price is the one you agreed and there is no further negotiations once the services are rendered.we did try to help a massage lady that came to our spot on the beach by hiring his friends to baby sit our...
