There are a lot of places to see in Bohol and these places are very accessible from Isis Bungalows. Here are some of the areas you can visit while staying with us:
Balicasag Island :
Balicasag is a small island south of Panglao and is a favorite among divers primarily because of three famous dive sites that surround the island, Black Forest, the Balicasag Marine Sanctuary and Divers Haven.
Black Forest is a slight slope with black coral bushes teeming with small fishes, a large school of mackerels and barracudas. The Balicasag Marine Sanctuary is a steep wall located on the western side of the island and is teeming with schools of jackfish while Divers Haven is a steep wall with drift dives, has beautiful corals and a cathedral-like cave.
Chocolate Hills :
Considered the most famous tourist attraction in Bohol, the Chocolate Hills is a must-see for visitors to the province. The hills, which look like giant mole hills, are unusual geological formations scattered throughout the municipalities of Carmen, Sagbayan and Batuan. There are a total of 1,268 hills, which, according to a theory, are the weathered formations of a kind of marine limestone on top of an impermeable layer of clay.
There are two areas where tourists can get a view of the hills and these are at the Chocolate Hills Complex in Carmen town, and at the Sagbayan Peak.
Philippine Tarsier Sanctary :
The Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary is an approximately 134-hectare land that has been set aside as a protected area for the Philippine Tarsier. Tarsiers are small and only weigh about 113 to 142 grams. They have big eyes and can rotate their heads to almost 180 degrees.
The tarsier trail starts at the municipality of Corella and ends at the Loboc River.
