Located within Bohol Province it is divided into two municipalities: Dauis and Panglao.   Panglao is located southwest of the island of Bohol and east of Cebu.

Panglao is a popular tourist destination in the Philippines.  It includes several small islands, such as Gak-ang, Pontod, and Balicasag.  Alona Beach is a stunning 1.5 km stretch of white sand beach. Beach combing, diving, snorkeling, sunbathing, swimming and relaxing are very popular activities here! Be sure to stop by at one of many beach-side restaurants for fine dining and cold drinks and enjoy the beautiful beach especially at night.

Alona Beach is approximately 30-40 min (22.6 km) via Panglao Island Circumferential Road from Tagbilaran City seaport. There are lots of transportation options including the  bus, taxis, habal-habal (motorcycle services) and tricycles from the seaport and airport.  I suggest tourists should take the taxi.  Taxis are faster, hassle free and air-conditioned.

There are 2 roads that  go to the Island of Panglao.  Borja Bridge, locally called “Junction”, and  Costway Bridge road.

Things you must do when you get to Alona Beach:  Shopping, bar hooping, diving, snorkeling, sunbathing, swimming, relaxing and most of all my favorite, Eating. Yay!!!

They are convenience stores  if you wish to buy something you forgot or want. And many  fashion stores and souvenir shops.  Unfortunately I couldn’t take pictures, we were told NO PICTURE ALLOWED. It’s ridiculous! The worst thing is they put a tarpaulin over the merchandise that says NO PICTURE ALLOWED, why? I don’t know! So we did not take a single picture of the stores.

Here are some I took on our visit.

Secured loan is also another option for those people, who have a poor minicreditos. Since this is a secured loan, it is more suitable for those who have a home. The process is quite similar, as the lenders just lend cash loans against the equity in a home. The home can be either mortgaged or fully owned, but the cash loans is provided on the basis of such a home. The interest rates on such loans are usually low and the repayment periods are too long.
