Panglao island in Bohol named one of the best secret beaches on earth. It is an island in the Philippines located in the Central Visayas, with an area of 80.5 sq. kilometers. Politically, it is divided into two municipalities: Dauis and Panglao, part of Bohol Province. Panglao is located southwest of the island of Bohol and east of Cebu. It is a popular tourist destination in the Philippines and includes several small islands like Gak-ang, Pontod, and Balicasag. Bohol is a small island that houses the Chocolate Hills and the Tarsier. Visitors can tour the island in one day and spend the rest of their stay in the beautiful white sand beaches of Panglao. Otherwise, vacationers can also try island hopping, diving, snorkeling, and dolphin watching. If you want to see the majestic Chocolate Hills, the best time to go to Bohol is from January to April. If you are after a good deal of beach time, avoid November and December (since many tourists go here during this time) as well as May, which is when the locals celebrate the Tagbilaran Fiesta. Expect many people coming in during this time.  Panglao Beach looks so much better during low-tide since the expanse of white sand is wider. The view of the beach during breakfast was relaxing. Talking about Panglao most of the people immediately think about "Alona Beach". Similar to Boracay you can find an amazing white beach and crystal clear water. If you can avoid to go there in the very high season Alona Beach is still a beautiful place.
