Good to know about Panglao Island
Panglao Island is a small island southwest of the island Bohol and east of Cebu. In 2010 the island had a total population of 68,051 people . It is divided into two municipalities: Panglao (with 28,603 people) and Dauis (39,448 people).

Talking about Panglao, most of the people immediately think about Alona Beach which is the main tourist destination on this island.

Panglao Island is one of the main tourist destinations on the Philippines mostly because of its great diving. Especially “Balicasag” is very much loved among divers. Most of the dive centers go there at least every second day. But also dive sites that are closer to the shore should not be missed out on.

Like in Boracay you can find an amazing white beach and crystal clear water. Unfortunately, like in Boracay this place has also lost lots of its former beauty and charm.
You can find one resort after another and plenty of restaurants and bars directly on the beach and it gets really crowded during the high season. If you are not that much into partying and meeting plenty of people, go there in the off season: you can see the beauty of this place much better and it will be possible to relax.
