Cabilao, Bohol


Just an hour or so away from Alona Beach, you couldn’t have more of a contrast in Destinations, from hustle and bustle to the complete quiet and tranquility of Cabilao. Make no mistake though, there is stunning diving to be had around this small island.

If it were not for diving, Cabilao would not register in any tourism guidebook; it’s a small island just off the West coast of Bohol, with fishing and agriculture as the main livelihoods for its people.
