Good to know about Bohol
With a total area of about 4,117.3 square kilometers (about 1589 sq miles) Bohol is the tenth largest island of the Philippines.

It’s situated in the Central Visayas Region. To its west you can find the island Cebu, northeast the island Leyte and to the south you can find Mindanao.
The capital of Bohol is Tacbilaran City and in 2010 the island’s population was 1,255,128 people.

Due to the fact that Bohol is surrounded by other islands on all sides it is hardly affected by the typhoons and heavy rains that normally occur in that region.

With an average daytime temperature of about 28°C (82.4° F) and rare showers, the months of November to April represent the mildest time of the year. From May to July you can expect higher temperatures and very humid days. From August to October it is the time of the southwest monsoon. During these months the weather is not really predictable.

Tourists come here mainly because of the great diving on Panglao Island.
Especially Balicasag Island is a well known place among divers. But also other dive sites closer to the shore of Alona beach are very good choices. “Cabilao Island” is also supposed to be a good diving destination.
