Panglao island

Ultimate guide (August 2023)
Panglao is a small island in the Philippines known for its great beaches. Of course, it is not so good like Boracay, but in general it's almost the same. There are discos and snorkeling as well. In addition, there is an interesting island of Bohol nearby (connected with Panglao by bridge) with chocolate hills and pretty tarsiers, - these are little animals on the trees. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #3 of the "Best islands in Philippines"

Hotels [edit]

Panglao has both cheap guesthouses (from US$15), as well as upscale beachfront resorts with rooms' rates starting from US$100 per night. But the main problem is fast developement of new hotels. So the island may become overcrowded very soon.
