Bohol Holidays

We love Bohol for its natural beauty, rich history, friendly locals and amazing beaches, and we’re sure you’ll fall in love with this idyllic island too.

Home to the smallest primate in the world, the tiny bug-eyed tarsier, you can explore the famous Chocolate Hills, take a boat ride down the serene waters of the Loboc River, and relax on the palm-fringed shores before taking a dive at one of the nearby coral sites that bursts with colourful marine life. For an adventure to remember, explore one of the 1,400 caves on the island, or hike the low-range mountains that stud the verdant landscape. Let the infectious Bohol spirit take over as you explore the Philippines’ hidden star.

Twin your stay in Bohol with a trip to Manila, the Philippine's thrilling capital, or visit Cebu for lazy beach days, temples and historical sights. 

Destination Highlights
  • Powder-soft white sand beaches

  • Chocolate Hills

    Bohol is famous for its Chocolate Hills which are located in the middle of the island. The unusually shaped hills are named after the brown colour they change to during the summer months. How these hills were formed is still a mystery and there are several different stories of what could of caused them, one of which involved two feuding giants who hurled rocks, boulders and sand at each other to eventually form the hills that were then forgotten about the two enemies became friends. Perhaps a more romantic tale of the hills' formation is that of Arogo, another giant, who fell in love with Aloya, a mortal. She didn't return his love so he cried for days; the legend goes that the hills are formed of his dried tears. As one of the island's most talked about and hyped attractions, the hills are truly magnificent and straddle three municipalities. It's well worth the 20-30 minute walk up to see the hills in all their glory and for fantastic photo opportunities.

Frequently Asked Questions
