Until recently, Panglao Island has stolen some of the glitters of the world-famous Boracay Island. Located at the southwestern tip of Bohol province, Panglao boasts of a long stretch of white-sand beaches embracing crystal-clear and blue waters.
Aside from beach activities, foreign tourists who visit Panglao are in for wonderful treats like diving, snorkelling and caving. Panglao is also fast rising as a venue for corporate gatherings such as conventions, seminars and brainstorming.
Panglao is easily accessible from Manila and Cebu. From Manila, one can take a one-hour flight to Tagbilaran City, the capital of Bohol. It is another 90-minute drive from Tagbilaran to Panglao. From Cebu, one can take a 90-minute trip by sea aboard ferry boats toward Tagbilaran. Then, a jeepney or a taxi will take you to Panglao for a reasonable fee.
