Anyone know of any good areas you can snorkel from the beach on Panglao Island? Or anywhere else maybe in Bohol?
You cannot snorkel off the beach in Alona island - the region is generally filled with sea grass (= hardly any fish to see) and always has boats running around (=one of them can knock you on the head!)
Best place in the region to snorkel off the beach -
1) Balicasag island (off Alona beach - coral beach with one government run resort on entire island and excellent snorkelling)
2) Nalusuan island (off Cebu - one resort on a small island with excellent snorkeling, rooms above the water and LOTS of colourful starfish)
Somehow I managed to forget Balicasag Island. There is a resort on the island so if you stayed there you could certainly enjoy some snorkeling from the beach https:/…
The other place I forgot is Jao Island, which is said to have good snorkeling from the beach
