The vibrant eco-tourism of Bohol brings a unique blend of sea, sand, and hills that leaves tourists in awe. Situated at the heart of the country, Bohol comprises a big island and a chain of smaller islands that offer various adventure activities, lush green surroundings, and crystal clear waters.

Due to the restrictions imposed by the local government to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, attractions in Bohol have reopened to residents only.
