About Bohol Island

Bohol Island is the Philippines' diving paradise and holiday resort. Deep beneath the waves, the water here holds a wondrous landscape, while, on land, there are ancient churches, cute tarsier monkeys and beautiful natural scenery. The island’s Chocolate Hills were used as background scenes in the filmography of the “Harry Potter” film franchise. Every year in the dry season the grasses atop the mountain become brittle and turn the color of chocolate. It is an enchantingly beautiful landscape that will sweep you off your feet. At the Philippine Tarsier and Wildlife Sanctuary you can feast your eyes on adorable tarsiers. Go to the La Purisima Concepcion de la Virgen Maria Parish Church (commonly known as Baclayon Church) for stunning views of the stained glass inside the nave. Take a cruise on the Loboc River to simultaneously enjoy the tropical rainforest scenery while all eating delicious Filipino specialties. There are many small islands in the vicinity of Bohol, and Bohol Island is a transit and transfer point for travelers going island hopping.

Virgin Island is a small uninhabited island. The beachs around the island appear with the tides for only a few hours every day. It is amazing to see the beautiful trailing beaches during low tides and most of the island going under the water when the water level rises. There are two soft sandbanks extending from the Virgin Island, and it is very comfortable to walk on them. The seabed outside the sandbank is full of seaweed.

Trip Moments

backpack   
There is an uninhabited island near the island of Bohol in the Philippines called the virgin island. At night, only the vegetation on the uninhabited island is exposed. During the daytime, there will be two white sandy beaches on the island. It is estimated that the name will be white when it is two places. Long beaches come. It is said that the island is very popular and has become one of the three major tourist projects on the island of Panglao on the edge of Bohol Island. It is also a must-see for many Chinese tourists visiting Bohol. Usually people take a boat to see the dolphins in the morning and float again. Snorkeling at the bottom of the sea, and finally landing on the virgin island. The virgin island actually has two white sand beaches when it is exposed to the water during the day. A beautiful and slender tourist is sought after by a tourist. A shallow beach is separated from the main island by a certain distance. Some roads are covered by seaweed, so there are few Visitors with limited time have set foot. But in any case, the name of the Virgin Island is the white sand beach that is out of the water. I suspect that even if there are many tourists, it is bound to be a sight worth seeing. I dream of walking on the endless white sand beach in the middle of the sea and the blue sky. Unexpectedly, the ship has not yet arrived on the shore and has seen a "bustling world". There are many tourists. The boat also docked directly on the edge of the beach to destroy the scenery. More often, many vendors set up sheds to sell coconuts and bananas. . The beach that is separated from the main island is not seen by anyone. With curiosity, I walked over another white beach, another world. The two beaches of the Virgin Island, one is the extraordinary excitement of tourists, and the other is the distant road.
