This beach will leave you speechless! It is not for passionate swimmers, but if you like to enjoy the white sand and clean water this is the place for you. It is a lot better than Alona beach, it is less crowded and more charming. The tricycle ride price to get from Alona to Dumaluan beach is 150PHP. That is the standard price, don't let anyone charge you more. There is a restaurant near the beach if you want anything to eat or drink. Prices are reasonable.

Staying in Alona we found the local beach quite crowded and commercialised, our hotel recommended this beach which is 2-3km out of town and only 150Ph in one of the numerous trikes. Beaches are golden sand and you can find the more glamourous and secluded hotels one end and a more public undeveloped area the other end. Well worth going to if you want non crowded and beautiful beaches.

The beach is very nice. It is beautiful white and the water is very clear.
It cost about 25 pesos pr person and there is also a small price for cars and scooters.
There are also some places to eat but I didn’t have the time to try them

Entrance fee is 25 pesos per person. Fine white sand beach. There were many people on a Sunday afternoon. Even after walking a few 100 meters, the water is only knee high. The place was a little crowded but it was a good beach for family outings. You can bring your food and drinks. You can rent a hut. Long lines in the shower and dressing rooms.

Dumaluan beach is gorgeous! With its beautiful waters and less crowded stretch of beach, it really is worth going to. We spent 2 days here out of 5 days we stayed in Panglao. A great relaxing beach best for lounging and sunbathing, good for a swim as well. This is where bohol beach club is. A highly recommended beach to wind down after a night of partying in Alona beach!

Beautiful, well maintained beach. It's a little hard to access as much of it is privately owned but you can enter at Dumaluan Beach Resort for 25P per person. Much nicer then Alona beach

For only P25.00 entrance fee, you'll get to enjoy this beach beach. The sand is white and fine & the water is crystal clear. You can also rent a cottage for P300 - P600 only. There's also restaurants available when you get hungry.

Dumaluan Beach is less crowded than Alona Beach so if you want to visit a more relaxing place, go here. We visited in July which is a low-season so I can't really say if it's always uncrowded. The only time it got crowded was during their non-working holiday "Bohol Day" , a bunch of locals were there.

Location and Transpo - This is place is probably 5-8 mins away from Alona (by Motorcycle or Tricycle). Walk if you can but we didn't dare try. Usually the Tricycle drivers will ask for 150php (2pax) and Habal-Habals (Motorcycles) will ask for 30php/pax. If you can haggle, ask for a cheaper price! The lowest we paid for a tricycle ride is 80php. You can also ride the Jeepneys if you are willing to wait since Jeepneys are so uncommon in this place. (15mins-40mins of waiting time). A jeepney ride will only cost you 10php/pax/way.

Food - Go to Dumaluan Beach Resort, they have a food place there, order the Avocado shake. :D

I recommend to visit at around 7am-11am, when it's low tide. The water usually starts to rise at around 12nn.

When I first moved to Panglao, I lived about 5-10 minutes walk away from this beach. There are places where you have to pay to get in but there's an entrance beside Dubay Resort that's free. That's our spot (when no one's there first of course). It's a longer shoreline than Alona beach and cleaner. If you want total peace and quiet, go during the weekdays. On the weekends and holidays, it's full of people that consists mostly of locals. I still prefer swimming here than in Alona beach. If you've read this and plan to go visit Alona beach, Panglao or Bohol in general then give me a heads up. Would be a pleasure to show you around.

Between Alona and Dumaluan beach, Dumaluan is absolutely the best. Finer, cleaner, softer white sand. The water is so clear, clean and peaceful. A private beach, very few people so you can enjoy the beach without being bothered. There are few boats unlike Alona beach, the boats scatters everywhere that almost eats up the whole beach.
The downside is that you have to cross the rocks and shells to enjoy a swim and snorkle but it wasn't really bad at all. And another downside is that the only food choice near is by the hotel, no night life. If you want to be castaway you're in the right beach if not you can a hire tricycle to get to the nearest store or bar.
