    In order to economize, when you plan to go to Balicasag, you may inform the boatman that you want to pass by Gakang Island and Pungtod Island. Otherwise, you will shell ou P600 to P800 for a boat ride going to Gakang and Pungtod Island.

    You may contact any of the boatman at Alona Beach or the wharf near Panglao Church.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Corella Tarsier Sanctuary, located at the thick and densed forest of Corella, gives you a chance to see the Tarsiers in their natural habitat. For a minimal donation of P20.00, a guided tour of the sanctuary will include not only seeing the tarsiers a chance to see the forest of Corella.
