About Bohol Island

Bohol Island is the Philippines' diving paradise and holiday resort. Deep beneath the waves, the water here holds a wondrous landscape, while, on land, there are ancient churches, cute tarsier monkeys and beautiful natural scenery. The island’s Chocolate Hills were used as background scenes in the filmography of the “Harry Potter” film franchise. Every year in the dry season the grasses atop the mountain become brittle and turn the color of chocolate. It is an enchantingly beautiful landscape that will sweep you off your feet. At the Philippine Tarsier and Wildlife Sanctuary you can feast your eyes on adorable tarsiers. Go to the La Purisima Concepcion de la Virgen Maria Parish Church (commonly known as Baclayon Church) for stunning views of the stained glass inside the nave. Take a cruise on the Loboc River to simultaneously enjoy the tropical rainforest scenery while all eating delicious Filipino specialties. There are many small islands in the vicinity of Bohol, and Bohol Island is a transit and transfer point for travelers going island hopping.

Mountain
Located in the middle of Bohol Island, Chocolate Hills is an iconic natural wonder on the island where the film Harry Potter was filmed. Chocolate Hills are made up of thousands of hills with similar shape and varying heights. The lawns on the hills will turn brown in dry seasons, looking like a piece of chocolate from afar. Chocolate Hills is green during other seasons. You can take a motorcycle or walk up the mountain, on top of which a viewing platform provides a good point to enjoy the view.

River
The Lobo's River is quietly flowing on Bohol Island. The dense vegetation on both sides covers the depths of the forest on the shore. It is a habitat for various mysterious animals. With such primitive tropical scenery one can not help but think of the Amazon River, perhaps because of this it made it the title of "Oriental Amazon River." The river rafting has been recognized as a great way to experience the style of the Lobo's River. While admiring the scenery of the tropical rain forest, we can also see the characteristics of residential houses on both sides of the Strait.
