Bohol is known for its beaches with fine white sand with great diving at dropoffs, coral patches in sandy area. Balicasag is a favorite among many divers who flock this island diving destination.
divers.ph flew from Manila to Tagbilaran to dive Bohol. Almost an hour flight and a 20-minute van ride from the airport to Alona beach makes it convenient for a dive holiday.
Other popular Bohol dive sites aside from the famous Balicasag Island are:
- Arco Pt
- Swiss Bamboo
- Snake Island
Alona Beach is one of the many beaches around Panglao Island. It’s a beach strip where you can find resorts of varying luxury category. A number of dive operators are available. Diving can be done in the Alona House Reef. Visibility is stunning especially at Balicasag Island (at least for the many times I’ve visited Bohol).
School of jacks, barracudas, sweet lips are some of the sightings. Check out the video about dive Bohol: https://vimeo.com/49376448
