Balicasag Island, located off the coast of Panglao Island in Bohol, is a stunning destination blessed with white sandy beaches and rich marine life. The reef surrounding this tiny island has been declared a marine sanctuary and drops off suddenly to great depths. It is home to a diverse range of marine species, including trevally, barracuda, and wrasse, and is covered with both soft and hard corals, making it a popular spot for diving and snorkeling.
The waters of Panglao Island are home to various species of dolphins and whales, including the bottle-nose dolphin, Risso’s dolphin, pantropical spotted dolphin, long-snouted dolphin, Fraser’s dolphin, melon-headed whale, short-finned pilot whale, Bryde's whale, and sperm whale.
The picturesque Virgin Island is located in the middle of the shallow area between Panglao Islands and Balicasag. During low tide, visitors can experience the C-shaped sandbar, which is famous for its powdery white sands and crystal-clear waters. It is an ideal spot to relax, soak up the sun, and swim in the refreshing waters.
