Bohol is blessed with a number of marvelous white beaches, which just await to be discovered and enjoyed.
Alona Beach Probably the most beautiful, and surely the most developed beach on Panglao is Alona Beach. Located at the Southwest of the island, this beach is about one and a half kilometers long, lined with nice resorts, which are great to stay for a some time, a number of well equiped diving establishments and pleasant places to eat out, if you do not want to eat at your resort's restaurant for a change.
Probably the only drawback of the beach are the large numbers of sea urchins that inhabit the water, starting some twenty or thirty meters out of the coast. You will just have to be careful when wading.
Don't forget to bring your snorkeling equipment. When you swim about one hundred meters off the beach, you will reach the edge of the 'house' reef, at between three and five meters deep, and thus can be easily observed even without scuba equipment. If you are into scuba diving, though, don't forget to have a few dives here as well, as it is certainly worth it, not bad at all, even compared with the reefs the boats will bring you to.
Dumaluan Beach, also on the south of the island, is about two and half kilometers east of Alona Beach. Here you will find some of the more exclusive beach resorts of Bohol, such as the Bohol Beach Club.
Bikini Beach is about eight kilometers from Tagbilaran, and hence a popular location for local pick-nickers.
Momo Beach is on the north side of Panglao. This again is a shallow beach.
Doljo Beach (pronounced 'Dolho' beach) is on the Northwest of the island, not far from Momo beach, and is also a nice beach, mostly free from sea-grasses. This beach is known for the beautiful sea shells that can be found here.

|Sa mga pupunta pa lang ng bohol, I suggest na mag rent na lang kayo ng car (w/driver para mapili nyo yung talagang gusto nyong puntahan. Kami pinagsama namin yung countryside and panglao tour sa car rental service pero selected na yung tourists spots na pupuntahan. Hindi na namin pinuntahan ibang places like butterfly farm, python kasi marami naman yan dito sa Metro Manila and nearby provinces. Bale P2000 new car pag countryside tour lang. Add na lang kayo ng konti para sa iba pang spots for Panglao) Make sure lang na pag dating nyo ng Loboc River Cruise paalis na yung boat para hindi sayang sa oras kasi yung natapat na boat sa amin nag hintay pa sa ibang passengers. Sabihin nyo din sa driver dalhin kayo sa Loboc Eco-Tourism Adventure Park. Pwede kayo mag zip line at cable car dun. P350 yung zip line tapos pwede kayo kunan ng pics habang nasa zip line kayo. Price ng pics w/cd and 1 printed copy of your chosen photo is P250. There are approximately 50+ shots sa isang cd. Very thankful kami sa driver (Rowell) kasi dinala nya kami dito kahit wala talaga sa itinerary namin ito. Dito kami talaga sa Loboc Eco-Tourism Adventure Park nag enjoy ng husto. By the way, yung driver din namin is para na ring tour guide kasi habang nasa car and tourist spots marami na syang share na info/history sa amin. Ang contact nga pala namin sa car rental is : Mr. Hans www.boholspeedrentacar.com Mobile # 09276307926 09065077848 email email@example.com|
