Many Filipino children dream of visiting Bohol Island because of Chocolate Hills.  For them, it is the most famous attraction in Bohol since it is mentioned in their geography books.  But there’s more to Bohol than these grass-covered hills that turn chocolate brown come summertime.

This province not so far away from Cebu City boasts of its waters teeming with rich and colorful marine life – a haven for snorkelers and divers.  Its white sand beaches blessed with crystal clear water make for a perfect beach-bumming location.  Each of these beaches has their own personality so exploring them will give you a clearer idea how one differs from the other.  From the highly-commercialized Alona Beach to the more peaceful Danao or Dumaluan Beach, you will surely find a little spot for you in Bohol.

See the dolphins early in the morning, meet one of the smallest primates in the world, or cruise the Loboc River while enjoying your buffet meal on a floating resto…  all these and more you will surely experience in Bohol.

Best Time to Visit

It’s best to visit the Philippines during the dry season.  Dry season in the Philippines spans from November through April.  These are the summer months in this country.

Be aware that temperatures and humidity levels are particularly high in April and May.

The best time to be a beach bum and explore the islands is from March to May.

TIP:  Booking for summer trips should be done as early as possible, at least a month before your travel dates, since resorts get fully booked early.

The period from June to October is the rainy (wet) season and is best avoided due to the high possibility of typhoons. The typhoons can not only be destructive, but most tours and activities are cancelled under such circumstances.  Transportation via plane and boat is also seriously impacted as well.  This happens frequently so beware!

This guide recommends traveling to Bohol Island in April-May or in November-December, just before and just after the rainy season. This will likely bring fewer crowds, yet pleasant weather, and is also a great time to score a travel deal.

Other caves in Bohol Island are Sudlon Cave which is the largest cave in Bohol and home to a huge population of bats, Buhong Tiawan Cave which also served as hideout of Boholanos during the Japanese occupation, Hagakgak Cave where rare albino crabs (sundathelphusa Philippina) are found, Inambacan Cave which has stalactites and stalagmites often submerged in flowing water, Antequera Cave known as snake pit because of the presence of pythons, Carmaloan Cave which is considered one of the deepest caves of Central Visayas, and Seventh Heaven Caves among others.  There are also burial caves namely Anda Burial Cave and Guindulman Burial Caves.

4 | Chocolate Hills

The seemingly endless conical hills that are about 1,268 to 1,776 in number are covered in grass but turn chocolate brown during the dry season, hence the name.  This is a popular tourist attraction not just in Bohol but in the whole Philippines.  There are two viewing stations for Chocolate Hills, the first one is the government-owned Chocolate Hills Complex and the other one is at Sagbayan Peak in the town of Sagbayan.  There are tour operators offering ATV tours to some of the hills.

5 | City Tour

One’s visit to Bohol isn’t complete without exploring Tagbilaran City, the capital of the province.  The top spots that best make up your city tour includes Bohol Museum, Rocha-Suarez Ancestral House, St. Joseph Cathedral, and Tagbilaran National Museum.

6 | Historic Churches

Several churches in Bohol were built centuries ago.  Most of them went through war, fire, and earthquake but through rebuilding or repair and restoration, they are still standing up to this day.  If you plan to explore the historic churches of Bohol, don’t miss out Baclayon Church, Loboc Church, Dauis Church, and Cathedral de San Jose.

7 | Islands

Surrounding mainland Bohol are several islands known not only for their beaches but also for their rich marine life.  Balicasag Island, considered as the best diving spot in Bohol, is known for its colorful reef that has been declared a marine sanctuary.  It also has submarine cliffs as deep as 50 meters, turtles, and fishes including trevally, barracuda, and wrasse.

8 | Loboc River

The Loboc river is where the famous river cruise on a floating restaurant runs.  Along the way, there are stopovers where locals perform traditional dance and other activities to entertain tourists.  The cruise runs up to the Busay Falls, and then back to the point of origin.  The cruise comes with a buffet lunch.

9 | Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary

Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella isn’t a mini zoo but a large forest aimed to protect the endangered species called tarsiers, one of the smallest primates in the world.  Most tarsiers are almost as big as the adult human fist with eyes so big and fur so soft and velvety.  They are shy animals and tend to die in captivity due to stress, hence the sanctuary prohibits touching them and even using flash when taking pictures.

10 | Waterfalls

Bohol has waterfalls that can easily be accessed by public transportation.  There’s Mag-Aso Falls named after the local term aso or smoke in English due to smoke-like drizzles formed from the water and Camugao Falls in Balilihan that has cascading water that resembles an amphitheater and Kawasan Falls.  There are around 20 waterfalls in Bohol so there’s definitely a lot to see.

NOTE: The Sandugo Festival occurs annually in Tagbilaran City the 3rd week of July.

2 | Coco Loco

Located in the laid-back town of Anda, Coco Loco is a small cafe in a native hut made of bamboo and nipa (palm) roof.  It is known for its coconut burger but their veggie burgers and couscous are great, too.  This vegetarian-friendly cafe serving local craft beers is geared towards sustainable tourism as well.

3 | Gerarda’s Restaurant

If you wonder about Gerarda’s homey interiors, that is because the restaurant used to be an ancestral house.  Don’t miss their ubi kinampay, the restaurant’s best seller.  This savory dish is made of kinampay, a type of ube (purple yam) with dark purple meat.  Other dishes to try at Gerarda’s are their vegetable soup called nilaw-oy, dinakdakan, seafood kare-kare, and crispy tinadyang.  It can get crowded during Sundays so make sure to plan your itinerary accordingly.

Travel Costs


A bed in a hostel dorm costs from 350 PHP ($7 USD), but smaller dorms can cost from 500 PHP ($10 USD).  For a private double, prices start around 700 PHP ($14 USD).

Most budget hotels begin at 700 PHP ($14 USD) per night for a double room and usually include free wifi and breakfast.  For a three-star hotel, prices begin around 1,400 PHP ($28 USD) per night. AirBnB is also widespread throughout the country, with private rooms starting from as little as 500 PHP ($10 USD) per night.  For entire apartments, expect to pay at least 1,400 PHP ($28 USD) per night.

We use and recommend booking online to save money using HostelWorldAgoda, and Expedia


Local food is extremely cheap, with street food costing under 50 PHP ($1USD).  For an inexpensive meal at a local restaurant, prices start around 100 PHP ($2 USD).  For a meal at a mid-range restaurant with drinks and table service, expect to pay from 200 PHP ($4 USD).  Knowing that their target customers are primarily tourists, Western food venues can be pricey compared to Filipino food.  Also, some of the ingredients need to be imported, which contributes to the higher cost. Western food (burgers, pizza, pasta, etc.) is much more expensive but is still relatively affordable at around 200 PHP ($4 USD) for a meal and drink.

Fast food like McDonalds will cost around 200 PHP ($4 USD).  A beer at the bar will cost around 50-100 PHP ($1–2 USD).

A week’s worth of groceries will cost between 300-600 PHP ($6-12 USD) per person.  However, food in this country is so inexpensive, and kitchens & refrigerators are hard to come by, I don’t recommend cooking your meals here since there is plenty of delicious street food to eat at very cheap prices. You won’t make it as good as they do and the food is too delicious to miss!


There are many modes of transportation available in the Philippines and each varies greatly. 

Public Transportation is cheap.  Bus services on the islands are inexpensive.  Local buses (called jeepneys) are the most common type of transportation in towns and cities. The fare is usually between 7-25 PHP ($.20–.50 USD).

On islands without a bus system, a taxi or tricycle is the only form of transport with fares starting at 50-500 PHP ($1-$10) USD for short trips. 

Taxis are everywhere, and they’re very cheap.  Most fares shouldn’t cost you more than 500 PHP ($10 USD) around town.  

To get between islands, you’ll need to take a boat or to fly.  There are ferries that connect the island together since they aren’t too far apart but, generally speaking, flights are the most realistic option. 

Flights between islands usually cost about 2,000-3500 PHP ($40-70 USD).  However, this isn’t the cheapest way to travel.  It’s only recommended if you have limited time. 

We recommend booking online to save money using:

Attractions & Activities

Most attractions and activities in the Philippines are pretty cheap. Most attractions throughout the area are FREE to enter, though some of the more well known and popular ones cost 5-100 PHP ($.10-$2 USD) to enter. 

Depending on the activity, most day tours only cost around 1,000-1,500 PHP ($20-30 USD), oftentimes less.  You have more bargaining power if you go with a group. If you are expecting to do some climbing, remember to pack some warm layers. It gets cold at the top!  

Other activities such as Island Hopping, scuba diving, helmet diving, swimming with whale sharks, jungle trekking, canyoning, ATVs, jet skis, wakeboarding, cruises, parasailing, horseback riding, cultural experiences, and tours can cost as much as 1,250-5,000+ PHP ($25-100+ USD).

The Philippines is one of the least expensive places to learn how to scuba dive. Learning to scuba dive usually costs about 15,000-20,000 PHP ($300-400 USD), but often includes FREE accommodation for the duration of the course, which lasts three or four days.

Always book your tours and activities when you arrive.  Stick to travel agents who are selling on the ground. If a travel agent won’t negotiate with you, move on to the next until you find one that will.  Booking tours online is almost always more expensive.

The following is some of our best advice on traveling to this destination. This is your guide on what you need to know BEFORE you go to Bohol Island!

Tips & Hacks

These Top 10 Tips can help guide you when visiting Bohol Island in the Philippines:

  • Be aware that a tourist VISA is only 30 days. You can extend it upon arrival, or within the first 30 days, for an additional 30 days for a fee of approximately 3,000 pesos.
  • Don’t buy into the fear factor. The Philippines has an unjustified reputation of being a dangerous place. It’s true there are security guards everywhere, but that is to deter theft.
  • Manila is NOT the Philippines. Get outside of the cities to see the real Philippines.
  • Don’t over plan. Boats, buses, and even airplane schedules are notoriously unreliable. Be flexible.
  • Check the weather. The weather varies greatly throughout the Philippines daily.
  • Typhoons can have a huge impact on your plans. Account for this when planning your trip.
  • It’s not cool to raise your voice or show outward frustration in public.
  • Be polite at all times. Realize that your country’s sense of humor may be different from Filipino humor and take this into account when interacting with Filipinos and while in public places.
  • Things move at a slower pace. Accept it … don’t get frustrated … but do account for it.
  • Don’t drink the tap water… but stay hydrated! Save money by buying large bottles (6-10 liters) of water and using it to fill your water bottle or hydration bladder in your backpack.

Money Matters

The Philippines has its own currency called the Philippine Peso.  Banks, ATMs, and money-changers can be found in Bohol Island.  If you are exploring the neighboring islands or provinces, make sure to bring enough cash that will last until the next time you get to an ATM or bank since most tours, transportation, and budget accommodations only accept cash.

Health & Safety


While overall the Philippines is a safe country to visit, as is Bohol Island, you need to use common sense just as you would in any country, especially when traveling, and in a city, town, or area you are unfamiliar with.

Consult your hotel, resort front desk, or tour guide as they are more likely to give you reliable information about Bohol Island than a random stranger on the street. Be careful when approaching strangers and selective about who you approach. Always pay attention to your gut feeling and follow it.

Staying Connected

You need to have a local-based SIM card in order to stay connected when in the Philippines. Network giants such as Globe and Smart have SIM cards you can use to make calls, send text messages, and also to connect to the Internet.

While you may not have problems with signal strength when in the city, it is not always the case when on islands or in remote areas of a province.  So when arranging for transportation pick up, say when renting a boat to take you to and pick you up from the island, it would be best that you make it clear what time you need to be picked up before the boatman leaves.
