Bohol Heart of Visayas

Bohol, located at the heart of the Visayas region, lured nature-loving tourists from all parts of the globe. Touted as one of the island jewels of the Philippines, its white sand beaches and mysterious islands are one of the best in the world. This is the tenth largest island in the Philippines, and one of my favorite family-friendly destinations in the Philippines.

Most hotels in Bohol offer packaged countryside tours and island hopping tours for a group, which you can take advantage of. These packaged tours can range from approximately 2,500 up to 5,000 pesos per head depending on the number of people in the group and the number of destinations, together with a 3-day, 2-night accommodation. These hotels and guesthouses are all family-friendly. How to Get There? From Manila take the flight to Bohol’s capital, Tagbilaran City. The travel time from Manila takes 1 hour and 15 minutes. A 25-hour boat ride from Manila is also possible if you have a lot of time to spare and you love traveling by sea. Chocolate Hills, its most famous landmark, is a favorite tourist spot located at Chocolate Hills Adventure Park in Carmen, Bohol. They look like hundreds of giant mounds of chocolate when they turn brown in the dry season. The island is dotted with waterfalls, caves and other natural attractions like butterfly sanctuary and the Tarsier Conservation Area, home of the world’s smallest primate. Your family will love the countryside tour in the main island of Bohol, usually offered as a package tour by travel agencies where you travel around town in a private van. Your kids will gape in awe at the man-made forest of mahogany trees lining up a 2-kilometer road. Take a refreshing dip during the tour and delight in the beauty of Mag-Aso Falls (one of the many falls in Bohol).

Your family will never forget a unique cruising experience at Loboc River. Loboc River Cruise tour is usually done at midday. This is where you can enjoy a sumptuous eat-all-you-can lunch buffet. You’ll be serenaded by local musicians as the boat cruises along the length of the river. Ride a boat and go island hopping to nearby islands like the Virgin Island or locally known as Pungtud Island, Balicasag Island (dolphin-watching and snorkeling), and Panglao Island. Virgin Island has a long, snake-like stretch of a beautiful, powdery white sandbar. Alona Beach is located at Panglao Island. This place is a good option for a family to stay in Bohol as it has modern infrastructures. It is definitely not a party beach, making it a perfect family-friendly destination in the Philippines.
