During our Bohol – Cebu Trip, we stayed in Panglao Island - at Dumaluan Beach Resort. We chose this over the Alona resorts because we preferred a more private relaxed vacation. The price was just right for the amenities it offered and we got the atmosphere that we longed for. This side of Panglao houses some of Bohol's 1st class resorts including Bohol Beach Club and the Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa [just next to Dumaluan Beach]
The whole stretch is made of corally-white sand and starfishes are seen along the beach. At low tide, a wider stretch of sand is exposed ideal for beach sports and other activities. Dipping at the warm water is another must. The beach is open for free to anyone and is open from dawn till night.
The other side of Panglao houses the Alona beach resorts. It offers the Puerto Galera type resort set-up, where you can see many tourist from various walks of life and you are near to various establishments. Another beauty of Alona is the view of the sunset and the boats as they dock and leave the beachside.
