Out of the five islands we’ve visited in the Philippines so far, Bohol has got to be our favorite. While it’s one of the most visited islands in the archipelago, it’s hard to deny Bohol’s natural beauty. The isle’s coastline is lined with spearmint-colored beaches while its interior is dotted with rolling chocolate hills and emerald green rice paddies scattered through its floodplains.

In our short stay there, we tracked down tarsiers (you know how much we love wildlife!), cruised through a river, visited hundred-year-old churches and explored caves studded with stalactites and stalagmites. Few islands are as diverse as Bohol and even fewer teeming with this much natural attractions. Here are some photos to show the varied sides of the island, enjoy!
