Our home in Bohol was Bluewater Panglao, is equipped with two free-form lagoon shaped swimming pools, an acclaimed spa that overlooks the ocean, a full-service restaurant, among others. The beauty of this resort will make you not leave your hotel room for a while… But please don’t!!! Please explore the beauty and hidden gems of Bohol.

On this second post, we shall explore some unexplored terrain of the town of Candijay, of Anda, and of  Panglao.

Posted here are fairly new places to visit in the countryside of Bohol. Just a quick disclaimer, these places are highly suggested if it is already your second time in Bohol, and you have already been to Carmen, Baclayon, and nearby towns, I highly suggest that you try and visit these outskirt towns and municipalities of Bohol.

Aside from complimentary water activities Bluewater Panglao provides to their guests, they also offer boat tours for island hopping, and dolphin watching.

One our last day in Bohol, we woke up early to catch the dolphin’s morning exercise. Though, I sadly failed to take any photos of them since I was too busy taking video. But I was able to take photos of the islands we went to afterwards.

Isola de Francesco in Panglao, Bohol

This island, just a brief background is a place for retreat and meditation.

One must wake up early to catch the dolphin playing with the waves. Like us, we haven’t had our breakfast yet… Well, we actually already had our buffet breakfast but being always hungry… I went to searched for food in Isola de Francesco.

They have a small sari-sari store in the island, which serves puto, puto with cheese, puto maya, dinumugan,  empanaditas, coffee, chips, and what not… Though they don’t have specific prices for these. All these can be consumed through donation alone. What they sell though are religious artifacts such as rosaries, prayer beads, and prayer booklets.

This huge vat of “swaki” or sea urchins were picked for us, after we have placed our donation in the sari-sari store.

I am simply amazed as to how beautiful Bohol is, and how wonderful the Philippines is.

Stay hungry,
