BEST OF BOHOL 2016: 7 New Awesome Experiences You Should not Miss!

The 2013 earthquake may have caused serious damage to Bohol’s popular churches and structures, but that doesn’t stop tourists from coming as there is more to Bohol than its Chocolate Hills, cute tarsiers, and old churches. 

Join us as we rediscover Bohol through Stand Up Paddling (SUP) across the Loboc River, fearlessly Bike Zipping across a picturesque view of the Chocolate Hills, Dolphin watching in Pamilacan, Snorkeling in Balicasag Reef Sanctuary, and enjoying the beautiful beaches of Anda.

Here are some of the new and familiar places we love in Bohol that will make you want to revisit…

Henann Resort BoholHenann Resort Bohol is the biggest luxury resort in Panglao island, with a 6.5-hectare property sitting on the shores of Bohol’s famous Alona Beach.

BOHOL: Dolphin Watching, Balicasag and Isola di Francesco Tour Experience (Must Read!) @BellevueResort

Bellevue Resort
One of the must-do activities in Bohol is watching the dolphins swim in their natural habitat near Pamilacan Island. 

It’s recommended to get the Bohol Island hopping tour from the resort you’re staying at, but you can also book a boat elsewhere depending on how big your group is. We prefer the island hopping speed boats used by Bellevue Resort, which are ideal for getting close to the dolphin action and are much faster than the bancas. 

Here is a photo essay of our dolphin watching and island hopping experience…
