Without further adieu, check out our list of the best things to do in Bohol, Philippines. Follow through because the top 31 things to do in Bohol are recommended here.
Want to know the best luxury resorts accommodation in Bohol? Check out this list we have here!
1. Visit the Chocolate Hills in Carmen, Bohol
This is the first thing that will probably pop into your heads when talking about Bohol. It is also one of the top 10 things to do in Bohol. The Chocolate Hills are the most popular tourist destination among locals and foreigners. Nope, these are not made of chocolate so save your sweet tooth from that thought. These hills, which resemble giant mole hills, turn chocolate brown after the dry season thus, the name “Chocolate Hills” was formed. Located in Carmen, Bohol, tourists can start their trip either in Tubigon or Tagbilaran. If you decide to go on your own, you can take the bus going to the Chocolate Hills complex and from there, the ticket office is just 10 to 20 minutes away. If you want a more convenient experience, you can also join a cheap package tour which includes Chocolate Hills in the itinerary.
Entrance tickets cost ₱50.00 per person. Once you have it, you can take the steep stairs leading to the viewpoint. This is usually the spot which tends to get ]most crowded especially during peak season but, it is also where you can get an excellent view of the hills in 360 degrees perspective.
2. Experience the breathtaking view of Alicia Panoramic Park
One of the most adventurous and beautiful areas to visit in Bohol is the Alicia Panoramic Park. It’s a place for adventure and nature lovers. Why is my 2nd choice? Well, it’s really beautiful especially during sunrise or sunset. There are two options to experience this place. First, you can just visit it early in the morning, hike up to the viewpoint for sunrise and trek back after you had enough of the view. It is an area that is suitable for all ages. If you prefer to see the sunrise, you better go early at 5am and slowly make your way up. It can take up to one hour of walking up to the viewpoint.
Another best thing to do it camp overnight there. It is an amazing thing to experience and you can even arrange to arrive there at night, rent a tent from the local tourism office and just wake up with that sunrise view. There are no shops up on the hill so bring your own snacks or drinks.
There are buses going to the town of Alicia from Tagbilaran City. However, the best way to do this is take your own private vehicle so you can also stop at the waterfalls and beaches in Alicia and Anda.
To arrange for your stay, you may communicate with the tour guide we had last time here. Tell him you got his contact from Angie. Entrance was 10 pesos per person but you need to have a licensed tour guide to go with you.
3. Say “Hi” to our little friends in the Philippine Tarsier and Wildlife Sanctuary
There are a lot of tarsier sanctuaries in Bohol but the Philippine Tarsier and Wildlife Sanctuary in Corella, Bohol is the main and official tarsier sanctuary because it is run by the Philippine Tarsier Foundation. This foundation is a non-profit private organization (supported by Philippine government agencies like DOT and DENR) that aims to protect our endangered primate friends in Bohol. This tarsier sanctuary observes the best and proper practices when conducting tours in their vicinity. By this, we can be certain that we are not putting these endangered species under too much stress which decreases their survival rate. I would actually list this on my top 10 things to do in Bohol island as well.
To get to the sanctuary, you have to take the bus going to Corella or rent a motorbike from Tagbilaran City. The entrance fee is ₱50.00 and this already includes a guided tour. Lastly, be a responsible tourist! Remember to strictly follow the rules and regulations when visiting the tarsiers.
4. Stop by at the Man-made forest in Bilar
If you want to get some fresh air, why not stop by at the Man-made forest in Bilar? This won’t take much of your time (unless you want to take a gazillion pictures of the trees). This two-kilometer display of mahogany trees bordering Loboc and Bilar is free of charge. You will also easily notice the forest because once you are in, you will feel the sudden change of temperature. Don’t worry, these mahogany trees are not difficult to find. There’s not a lot to see but consider it one of the things to do in Bohol central Visayas.
5. Take the fun-filled guided tour of the Butterfly Sanctuary
This is probably one of the most entertaining guided tours on your itinerary. The guides in the Butterfly Sanctuary are well-versed and even crack some mind-blowing jokes which make the tour informative and fun at the same time. This Butterfly Sanctuary houses different types of butterflies. You will see preserved butterflies and moths on the first part of the tour and as you go through each of them, the guide will also feed you some facts about them. After the first part, you will enter a large enclosed space where you can see butterflies freely flying around. You can take as many pictures as you wish but just remember to be kind to these beautiful insects. After the tour, you can buy some souvenirs to take home or an ice cream to beat the heat.
The butterfly sanctuary in Bilar is one of the most popular tourist destinations because it is not far from the Chocolate Hills and the Man-made forest. Entrance fee is only ₱20.00
6. Dine while cruising the Loboc River
You will surely feel hungry after all those activities– hopping from one destination to another– but this does not mean that you have to take a break from your agenda. This gives you more of a reason to try the Loboc Floating Restaurant and River Cruise which is already included in the Bohol Countryside tour. I think nothing beats a good set of Filipino dishes and a wonderful view of the Loboc River for lunch. There will be local singers singing some Filipino hits too. I would consider this as the 2nd one for my top 10 things do in Bohol too.
The lunch package costs ₱650.00 for adults and ₱450.00 for children under 12 years old. Children until 3 years old are free of charge. There are also night cruises every Friday and Saturday which cost ₱650.00 to ₱800.00– depending on the package. The full package includes a buffet dinner, the river cruise, and a band concert by the Loboc Youth Ambassador.
7. Navigate Loboc River by paddle boarding
If you’re more of a daredevil type, you can still enjoy and explore Loboc River by paddle boarding. Even if you’re not a daredevil but still wants to try paddle boarding, don’t worry because learning “SUP” (stand-up paddle) boarding is easy. In fact, it is also becoming one of the most popular watersports in the Philippines and it is a good way to implement eco-tourism. It is also one of the best things to do in Bohol in 2019.
The stand-up paddle boarding is offered in different packages. Getting to the paddle center is not a problem because the package tour already includes roundtrip transfers from Tagbilaran to Loboc. To be honest, this tour costs a pretty penny but it will give you a different experience compared to the Floating River Cruise. So if you have a few extra bucks in your pocket, why not give it a try?
8.Visit the Beautiful Coast of Anda and see amazing waterfalls
Anda is a town located on the east side of Bohol, roughly 110 kilometers from Tagbilaran City. The Anda Peninsula offers long white beaches, some still unspoiled forest, numerous hidden waterfalls, intriguing caves, and fascinating islets. It is also not so popular so you should make sure to visit it while it’s still undiscovered.
The best way to explore the area and nearby town of Candijay to rent a car or motorbike to drive you around. You’ll be able to see most of the places of interest in day. Make sure to see Lamanoc Island and do a beach tour of Anda and Candijay town to see the waterfalls.
9. Swing your worries away in the hanging bridge
After a fearless adventure with the snakes in the wildlife sanctuary, you can also try swinging by the hanging bridge in Sevilla to get a nice view of the Sipatan river (with a twist). It’s one of the most fun things to do in Bohol! The bridge is 40 meters long and was originally made of bamboo. It was then reconstructed to add steel cables for additional support. Tourists like to visit this bridge because it sways and bounces with every step. The view down below can make your knees weak as you approach the middle of the bridge. There are guides who assist you in crossing the bridge but there are also times when they intentionally sway the bridge for an extra challenge. They also take pictures but you have to pay for the printed copies when you reach the other side.
The entrance costs ₱10.00 only and it is used for the maintenance of the hanging bridge. You can get there on a bus since the bridge is just along the road.
10. Toast with Legazpi and Sikatuna in the Blood Compact Shrine
This is a less challenging activity but if you are a history buff you should definitely add this to your itinerary. Located in Tagbilaran, Bohol, the Blood Compact Shrine also known as the “Sandugo” commemorates the historical event which happened in 1565. You can find here a statue of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Rajah Sikatuna toasting to their friendship. If you want to know more about the historical background of this site, be sure to add this to your list.
It is not difficult to find the site because it is just along the road. You can take a bus passing by Baranggay Bo-ol. If you’re on a Bohol Countryside tour, the Blood Compact Shrine has usually included in the itinerary already. Finally, there’s no entrance fee.
11. Visit the old Baclayon church
Baclayon church is the oldest church in Asia that is made up of coral stones. In the Philippines, it is one of the National Cultural Treasures. If you want a mix of religious influence in your itinerary, the Baclayon church of the Immaculate Concepcion in the town of Baclayon is just one of the old churches that you can visit while in Bohol. You can take Instagram-worthy shots in front of the church or you can get inside the museum to see some old religious artifacts. Getting inside the museum costs ₱50.00 but the entrance to the Baclayon church is only free. Getting to Baclayon church is easy if you’re coming from the Blood Compact shrine because it’s not too far from there. This is also included in the Bohol Countryside tour.
12. Be mesmerized by the mysterious Loboc church
If you can’t get enough of the Baclayon church, the Church of San Pedro opens its doors to tourists too. Also known as the Loboc church, the Church of San Pedro is the second oldest church in Bohol. The one that we can see presently is already the rebuilt church after the original church was set on fire. The interior of the church is jaw-dropping as it is filled with different embellishments and ornaments. You will also see paintings and religious artifacts inside.
To go there, you can take the bus going to Loboc or via Carmen.

The attractions also include sitting on top of a Philippine Buffalo and a close encounter with a tiger. There are also tarsiers here.

14. Unleash your inner-child in Loboc Ecotourism Adventure Park
The Loboc Ecotourism Adventure Park holds a lot of activities for all ages and one of the most popular rides in this park is ziplining across the Loboc River. This zip line experience will surely give you a great view of the Loboc River while you’re 120 meters above the water. If you want, you can also simultaneously take the ride with a friend since there are two cables next to each other. If a zip line is too much for you, you can also take the cable car ride. One cable car can fit approximately five adults. If you want to try both rides without breaking the bank, you can take the combo ride which is a one-way zipline and one-way cable car for only ₱350.00.

But you can still find some cheap hostels and hotels in Panglao that you can also stay.
No worries though, Anda Beach on the southeastern tip of Bohol is also a paradise.
