Beaches Connected by a Tropical Island: Panglao Island, Bohol

Panglao Island, Bohol Most boats and all airplanes arrive in Tagbilaran City, Bohol's capital. Two bridges then connect Tagbilaran City, on Bohol Island, to Panglao Island. Soon you will be able to fly direct into Panglao via a new international airport.

Three sides of this rectangular tropical island have white sand beaches. The only exception is the side of Panglao Island which faces Bohol Island. In total, there are nine white sand beaches to enjoy while on vacation in Panglao. On a map, Panglao Island looks like it connects these beaches together.

The municipalities of Dauis and Panglao govern Panglao Island.

Touring Panglao Island, Bohol

Tourists flock to Alona Beach as a starting point to tour the rest of Bohol Province. It has an 800-meter (2600-foot) white sand beach, a dynamic nightlife, and teeming weekends.

And, of course, there are eight other white sand beaches to enjoy. Dumaluan Beach may be the most beautiful, while Bikini Beach has the fewest tourists. Panglao Island connects them all together with plains, hills, and mountains.

The 2004 Panglao Marine Biodiversity Project discovered incredible marine biodiversity around Panglao Island. The tentative results compare the marine biodiversity of Panglao Island alone to that of Japan, the Mediterranean Sea, or New Zealand.
