Virgin Island

Panglao, Bohol

Virgin Island, also called Pontod Island, is one of the several islands included in Bohol Government's jurisdiction. It is located 15-20 minutes away from Panglao Island in the Philippines. This is known to local as the Virgin Island because nobody lives here and the place is not always visited by tourists even though it's opened to the public a long time ago. Virgin Island is one of the many isla ...

nds in the Philippines where a big area of the beach sink during high tide and only the palm trees in the middle of the island are visible.

Known to many locals as the "hidden oasis", Virgin Island is clearly an attraction due to its long stretch of white sand beach during low tide which spans around 1 hectare. The problem during shallow waters is that some motorized outrigger boats can't dock in the island because a lot of sea plants surrounding the area near the docking station will stick to the propeller causing it to malfunction. There's no other docking station except for this single area of the island because most of the parts have very shallow water even during high tide which can cause the outrigger boats to get caught on the underwater rocks or sands.

    Beyond The Hills

    On Oct. 15, 2013, the earth trembled for 33 seconds in Bohol, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake that devastated the island and reduced structures both old and new into piles of rubble. Despite the odds, this melancholic Central Visayas paradise has proven to be as resilient as the centuries-old bricks that make up the churches of its heritage district.

For anyone looking for a place where culture meets nature, this is exactly where they should be.

    Island Hopping And Dolphin Watching In Panglao Bohol

    Aside from the beautiful geological formation, old churches and river cruise, Bohol is also famous for its white-sand beaches. Alona Beach in Panglao Island is one of the famous places in Bohol especially for those who are looking for a sun and sea combo. White sand beaches, crystal clear water and party-all-night life are just some of the fun and lovely things that Alona has to offer. I would say that it's very much like Boracay but I find Alona's white sand much finer than Boracay's and the crowd isn't as much as Boracay. Though both islands are uniquely beautiful on their own ways and I lov ...

    Luckily enough I was able to find a cheap~ish ticket to Bohol last December (I'll post the budget somewhere in this post so keep reading!) and I'm all for cheap as plane tickets!
