Bohol has been one of the main tourist attractions in the Philippines even then. It boasts natural grandeur that never fails to awe everyone who visits the place. Bohol has become popular for its countryside attractions and white sand beaches.
I’ve been visiting Bohol to see my grandma since then. I’ve witnessed the immense beauty of the Chocolate Hills, the beautiful beach in Panglao , and all other places that other people have also visited but little did I know that Bohol has a lot more to offer than that.
So, how will you really maximize your fun time in Bohol? I suggest that you stay longer and explore more places. These places might have been already known to some people but let me just list down the places that are not usually included in your countryside and Panglao trip:
Anda Beach has the same white sand as Panglao but unlike Panglao, Anda is less crowded. If you are the type of person who wants to enjoy beaches with fewer crowds, Anda Beach might be perfect for you.
Can-umantad falls is located in Candijay, Bohol about 99.9 km from Tagbilaran City. The tallest one among the waterfalls in Bohol.
Mag-aso Falls and Inambacan Falls
Both waterfalls are located in Antiquera,Bohol. They’re surrounded with trees and plants making it look like a rain forest.
The cave is located at brgy Villa Aurora. It is about 2 kilometers away from the town proper of Antiquera. Going into the cave needs some skills. You might want to take a local tour guide with you for safety. Inside the cave is the influx of the water that often fills the cave. The water is usually over few meters deep and has a small or enough space between ceiling and water surface allowing the air to diffuse.
Sta. Fe Beach
It is situated in Sta Fe, Alburquerque, Bohol and is about 13 km from Tagbilaran City. What I like about this beach is the wide stretch of the white sand when low tide.
Does it look familiar? Yes! That definitely mirrors the rice terraces of Banaue. It is about 71 kilometers away from Tagbilaran City and is located in the northeastern part of Bohol.
Virgin Mary and Sto. Niño Statue Underwater
These statues can be found underneath the Double barrier Reef dive site in Bien Unido. The government put these statues underneath to remind the illegal fishers that every God’s creation is meant to be preserved. Apart from its sole purpose, these religious statues add up to the potential of Double Barrier Reef of becoming a global diving site or a tourist attraction.
These are just part of the Bohol’s hidden gems that wait to be discovered. The next time you visit Bohol, make sure to spare couple of days to explore places.
