is just 79 kilometres southeast of Cebu, oval-shaped Bohol province, is a treasure trove of ecological and historical wonders including the popular Chocolate Hills. The capital, Tagbilaran remains a sleepy laid-back city with its share of ubiquitous malls and fastfood chains. Not much action to be found here but in the isles at the tip of Bohol, pristine beaches line Panglao Island while the best and most popular divesites in the country temptingly lie around Balicasag Island. A few years ago, only divers and locals were privy to these white sand beaches and dive sites but soon word did spread thus Bohol is now largely popular as a world-class diving destination.

Bohol has other sights to offer the traveller seeking to explore more of the island. Apart from being a cradle for caves, waterfalls and mangrove forests, it is also home to the bright-eyed tarsier, one of the world's smallest primates. The province also served as the site of the Blood Compact, a historic treaty of friendship between a local chieftain and a Spaniard drawn in a contract signed with blood from their veins. The Spanish occupation thus left behind a number of centuries-old churches and watchtowers.


Visitors to the island have increased in recent years as Bohol continues to promote its own brand of eco-tourism, but this beautiful island remains largely quaint, unexplored, and unaffected by the modern trappings that it currently enjoys.
