Let Panglao, Bohol amaze you with its stunning natural attractions and its cultural and historical sites on this full-day tour around the town. If you’re looking forward to visiting historical churches and discovering the beauty of Bohol's southernmost town, then this day trip is the perfect match for you.
Your driver will pick you up at your accommodation and take you straight to Dauis Church. This church is popular in Panglao for its stunning façade and religious icons. The current church dates back to the 1860s, boasting of a hint of Gothic aesthetic at its exterior. Say a prayer or light a candle before leaving for the next stop — St. Augustine Church.
The St. Augustine Church is another beautiful remnant of the region’s old colonial days. It has a stunning neoclassical exterior characterized by a portico with Corinthian-style columns. When you walk inside, you will see detailed retablos. From there, you will get back on the road to Hinagdanan Cave.
Hinagdanan Cave, which meant “laddered,” was used as a hideout by locals during World War II. It features inviting azure waters and fascinating rock formations. Feel free to take a quick dip in the pool and splash about as you enjoy the mysteriousness of the entire cave. Afterward, you will make your way to Bohol Bee Farm and Shell Museum for some quick exploration and photo-op before heading to Alona Kew White Beach Resort.
The powdery white sand stretches for around four kilometers, offering you plenty of space for sunbathing. You can also swim in the turquoise waters of the beach and go snorkeling with the fishes. Your lunch will be served here. After digging into the sumptuous meal, you will be taken to Panglao Watch Tower, located some five kilometers away from the resort. The tower dates back to the early 1850s and features a hexagonal shape and five stories. While its integrity is now in question due to its age, feel free to take plenty of pics on the site before heading to Cafe Lawis, one of the best spots to eat a Filipino-style meryenda (snack).
