You might wonder, what exactly makes Panglao a dream gem?
When one talks about Panglao, one cannot turn a blind eye to the beauty of its magical white sand beaches.
One of the main draws of Panglao is its stunning beaches. Alona Beach, located on the southwestern side of the island, is one of the most popular beaches. Visitors can swim, snorkel, and even scuba dive in the waters, which are teeming with vibrant coral reefs and colorful marine life.
Just as Alona’s tranquil daylife is highly regarded, Alona Beach’s nightlife is to die for with several artisan drinks and glorious clubs by the beach.
Alona Beach is just one of the many beaches on Panglao Island. There are other hidden beaches as beautiful as many sought-after beaches like Doljo Beach and Momo Beach fit for people in their soul-searching phase or for those plainly wanting to escape the hustle and bustle, which offer a quieter, more secluded atmosphere.
Case in point about secluded and hidden places, Panglao Island takes pride in exquisitely mind-blowing caves. One of which is a must-visit attraction, the Hinagdanan Cave.
Accidentally discovered by a farmer who built “hagdan” (ladder) while clearing his land, Hinagdanan Cave’s underground cave system features natural rock formations, stalactites, and stalagmites, and is a popular spot for swimming and exploring. Visitors can also enjoy a refreshing dip in the cool waters of the cave’s natural pool.
Like Hinagdanan Cave, tourists like you can also explore several caves which offer unique experiences such as Camabagat Cave, Baliho Cave, and Ka Mira Cave.
Vibrant Marine Life
If you’re someone who loves marine life, nearby Panglao Island showcases exceptional reefs and abundant marine life offering the best underwater experiences! You can dive with turtles, trevally, corals, rare octopuses, seahorses, exotic nudis, eagle rays, and walls and pinnacles all year round.
The island is also a great place to go dolphin-watching. Bottlenose dolphins are known to frequent the waters around the island, and visitors can take a boat tour to catch a glimpse of these playful creatures in their natural habitat.
Rich Culture and Tradition
It’s not just the natural beauty and attractions that make Panglao Island special. Made up of two municipalities, Panglao and Dauis, the island is also known for its warm and welcoming locals, who are always happy to share their culture and traditions with visitors.
Visitors can sample traditional Filipino dishes, like adobo and sinigang, or attend a cultural show featuring local dance and music. For those looking for a more immersive experience, there are even homestays available where visitors can stay with a local family and get a firsthand look at the island’s rich culture and way of life.
But guess what? Panglao Island is not just a place to visit. Being a phenomenal tourist spot in the country that’s always buzzing with visitors, it can be a sweet investment opportunity.
