Experience the island life as you set sail to one of the 72 gems around Bohol on this full-day tour. Taking you to the popular Balicasag Island, this escapade appeals to ocean lovers and beach bums craving for some Vitamin Sea.
You will be meeting your guide at Alona Beach, where your outrigger boat will be waiting for you. From there, you will begin your journey towards Balicasag Island. Named as a marine sanctuary, the island is located at about six kilometers southwest of Panglao.
Upon arriving at the island, feel free to explore the area for yourself. You can lounge by its fine sands or take a dip in its cool sea waters. The whole island is only about 600 meters in diameter, so walking around would only take you roughly 45 minutes or an hour. While Balicasag Island is relatively small in size, it is surrounded by reefs and is home to a thriving marine life. The waters here are shallow as well, making it a beginner-friendly site for snorkeling.
Expect to see diverse species of corals and schools of fishes even in shallow waters. For those looking for more adventure, you will be able to see impressive submarine cliffs as deep as 50 meters. The cliffs are surrounded by both soft and hard corals, which will make you feel like you're in a whole new world.
Aside from the corals, turtles frequent the area as well, together with lionfish and triggerfish. Clownfish, which is the same fish from Finding Nemo, also make an abundant appearance around the reef. Once you're done with your ocean exploration, a picnic lunch will be served by the beach, so you can eat while enjoying the view. After relaxing under the sun, you will be brought back to Alona Beach, ending your perfect day.
