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.
