Bohol is an island in the Philippines located in the amazing archipelago of the Visayas. This island is really nice, without the noise and traffic characteristic from the bigger islands. In Bohol, you can easily join great beaches, boozy nightlife, amazing dive sites, and a tarsier monkey sanctuary (featuring the animals that inspired the Gremlins).
The main city and capital of Bohol Island is Tagbilaran, a city you might pass through as there isn't much interest in staying here if you are really looking for beaches. Alona Beach, on a neighbouring island, is just twenty minutes away and can get you everything you are looking for in a good beach. For diving lovers, there are excellent spots to see dolphins and pilot whales and any resort or dive shop in Alona Beach can organize diving trips –- shop around as prices can vary a lot. If you want to go to the interior of the island, you can do it as part of an organized tour; shop around tourist offices and Bohol hostels to find a good price. The Philippines Tarsier Sanctuary is worth a visit -- at the same time, you are helping to save this endangered species.
The best way to arrive in Bohol is by airplane -- the airport is just two kilometers away from Tagbilaran. There are tricycles to the city center and also direct taxis to Alona Beach –- there is a bridge between Tagbilaran and Panglao Island.
There are just a few hostels in Bohol, so you should book in advance, mainly in the high season where prices outside hostels can be too much for budget travelers. Bohol's hostels are really nice and will be good value for money.
