Alona Beach is really nice! We went to Boracay and that is nice too. Alona has a smaller beach but it is like a smaller version of Boracay. And Bohol has a lot more interesting sites and activities. So, we will go back to Alona and NOT to Boracay.

I was in Bohol for a diving course which was based on Alona beach and chose bohol as it was described as the best all round destination in the Philippines-this is wrong! Firstly the beach was full of seaweed and I did not see a single person swimming there during my stay, I had just come from Boracay and am... More

This wonderful white Sand Beach earns bit more maintenance. Can start to Explore the Islands around from that place.

Clear and clean water with white beach and restaurants along the beach just like in Boracay. It's a mini Boracay indeed :)

Great food with very reasonable prices and nice sea view. There are small souvenir shops as well, they are selling very nice handkraft souvenirs with very low prices.

Been to this beach many times. Very good place for divers. I dove with Mr. Diver, and my dive guide was very nice. Gave me some tips for my not-so-good buoyancy :) I will keep going back! Food was great, there are cheap restaurants by the beach that served affordable and with not-tourist rate.

we were looking for a nice beach and we tried this beach in panglao island. it was a mistake. the establishments are so close to the water that there is actually no more beach except on some parts. i feel that they have become so greedy for real estate that they destroyed what is actually the source of their income,...

Just visited Alona Beach for the day. Travelled by jeepney from Tagbilaran which was a fun experience and only cost PHP25 each, so very cheap but did take an hour. The beach is nice with plenty of diving places and restaurant options. Lots of people trying to sell tours and other things which got a bit tiresome. The water was... More
