I'm so happy I made the decision to drive to this sanctuary instead of doing what a lot of lazy people do which is just visit the tarsier zoo near the Chocolate Hills out of convenience. At the sanctuary they take small groups through so as not to stress the animals with crowds & noise which I liked. There were... More

The walk round the sanctuary is quite quick really, but in total you see about 10 tarsiers at a very close distance to the pathway. The monkeys were indeed very cute and reminiscent of my girlfriend, especially the way they cling on to the tree. However, what we were told by our driver that day is that the tarsiers are... More

Please be careful which Tarsier Sanctuary you go to. This one from my research is the best by far and yes you will disturb them by being there but the thought of these amazing creatures committing suicide because they are so unhappy is to me horrendous. The centre is small well laid out, with a guild to show you where... More

Tarsiers are a member of the approximately 45-million-year-old family Tarsiidae, whose name is derived from its elongated "tarsus" or ankle bone. Formerly a member of the genus Tarsius, it is now listed as the only member of the genus Carlito, a new genus named after the conservationist Carlito Pizarras. The Philippine tarsier measures only about 3.35 to 6.30 in. in... More

Visited Bohol to see Tarsier. The first mammal in the world, but misnamed as little monkey. Nice garden with many information on wallpapers. Many visitors also. Able to see 4 of them. Very small in size with big eyes and stick on the tree. It can move head 180 degrees and if unhappy may commit suiside. Great experience

I went to Alona Beach to dive with friends and we went to see the sanctuary during our day off It is only 45 min drive from Alona and the visit only takes 15 min or so. They have 8 Tarsiers in the visitor area and you must keep quiet whilst a guide shows you where they are resting I... More

The sanctuary is quite small, but you get to see quite a number of the monkeys. As you walk along concrete path through a small forest, each monkey is watched by a guard (so that ppl behave and don't use flash), which I really appreciated.

Interesting to see these tiny creatures which are about the size of your fist. Shy and difficult to see however, worth a visit on your way to the Chocolate Hills.

This is a great place to get very close to some magical little animals. The Sanctuary has good values and looks after the animals well. The guides are very respectful and all guests are encouraged to be so also, keeping noise levels down and not interfering with the animals in any way. They are trying to sleep during the day...

Tarsiers are way tinier thanbI expected. For just 60 pesos you can walk through sanctuary with a guide, who shows these little, cute creatures. He or she will also answer all your questions. It's not long, just around 15-20 minutes but definitely worthy seeing. In my opinion, a must-see on Bohol island.
