From the main tourist area of Alona Beach in Panglao, it’s a short 20-minute drive to reach this location.

 

HOW TO GET TO PANGLAO BEACH BOHOL

The best way to get to Bohol Panglao Beach is to rent a scooter from one of the many scooter rental stores dotted around the Alona Beach area. Scooter rentals are around 300 – 350 pesos per day with a full tank of gas.

Alternatively, you can jump in the back of a tricycle and ask the driver to drop you over to this side of the island. For a 20-minute drive in a tricycle, you can expect to pay around 100 – 150 pesos. Put your bartering skills to the test!

WHAT TO EXPECT AT PANGLAO BEACH BOHOL

The 200 meters long Panglao Beach is small but very dreamlike. Fringed with coconut palms and turquoise waters, this is hands down one of the best beaches in Bohol.

The only beachfront hotel is the famous and luxury Mithi Resort & Spa which also hosts a small island in front of their shores serving as a wedding ceremony spot.

The little island can be reached by strolling in waist-deep water and from here you’ll be able to enjoy sweeping views of the coastline.

During our visit to Panglao Beach, we were greeted by some friendly locals who were enjoying their karaoke session in a small hut along the beach. They didn’t seem to be disturbed by our presence and we enjoyed the background music as we were relaxing on the shoreline.

We didn’t come across one single tourist which made the visit to this untouched paradise even more worth it.

The best time to visit is during high tide and it’s also a great location to watch the sunset in Panglao.

This is one of the most tranquil and relaxing beaches in Panglao and well worth adding to your Bohol itinerary.
