Panglao Island

Connected to the main island of Bohol by bridge, Panglao Island offers a wealth of underwater dive sites and scenic little villages. The long sandy stretches of coastline to the south of the island have been developed for tourism in recent years, with many resorts, beach bars, and seafood restaurants becoming central to the island's seaside economy. For many, the wealth of biodiverse dive sites represent the main attraction of Panglao Island, while a number of smaller, uninhabited islands provide good options to embark on an island-hopping adventure.

Where to stay in Panglao Island

If you're looking for a beachside holiday on Panglao Island, head to the south coast. Here, the sandy stretches come lined with luxury and mid-range resorts, with private areas of beach, diving equipment rentals, expedition booking services, and spas. A recent focus on eco-tourism means you'll find a selection of sustainable, low-impact lodges around the island, both by the coast and further inland. Budget accommodations do exist on Panglao Island, although many budget-conscious travelers opt instead to stay in Tagbilaran City, where more moderately priced accommodations abound.
