Where is Bohol?

Bohol is known for its sweet tag - home of the Chocolate Hills. Once heard, everyone gets curious about these hills and would ask, 'are they made of chocolates?'. It was a clever name that could easily catch attention and remember a place.

 

It also homes the endangered species of Tarsier. These nocturnal primates are near threatened, and conservations were built for them.

Bohol beaches are compellingly beautiful because of their unique presentation and experiential activities. Know the reasons behind why I personally like Balicasag and Virgin Island beaches.
