Jagna

Jagna is a bustling port town in the eastern coast of Bohol. This municipality was first settled by immigrants from Loboc who transformed the wide valley into rice paddies. It became a rather prosperous community. In 1879, it had a population of 11,829.

Today, Jagna is the place from where you can embark in the direction of Mindanao. While you pass here, don't hesitate to have a taste of the local delicacy, calamay, a mixture of sticky rice, coconut milk, and sugar, packed in a coconut shell.
