Dumaluan Beach, Panglao, Bohol

Dumaluan Beach of Panglao Island is one of the most frequented beach resorts in Bohol. It's area is big enough to accommodate hundreds. As you can see in the picture, Dumaluan  has white sand and full of trees like coconuts (lots of it), talisay, and other native trees that usually grow near salty water. They are really a great plus factor as they provide shade from the scorching sun during summer and act also as wind breaker during habagat season (southwest monsoon).
It is best to go there on weekdays because weekends are usually the days for families to have  a picnic but if you really have to, reserve a hut in advance. The good thing about renting a hut is that you can stay for as long as you want. There are huts (about 50) that are open on both sides and also enclosed nipa huts for those who want privacy. The rent for a nipa hut (private) is 1000 pesos  (about 20-22 USD) for one day (24 hours) accommodation. There are bigger rooms available too for those who want to stay longer.  Like most resorts, Dumaluan also have the amenities for scuba diving, island hopping, dolphin watching, kayaking, kite gliding and they also have a boat with glass floor (it's like snorkelling without getting wet).

Unlike those resorts along the Alona strip where the night-life is rather too "lively", at Dumaluan, you'll experience nature and quiet. Although there are times when parties are celebrated, they usually sizzle out at midnight. The favorite pasttime however is beach-combing, hiking or jogging along the beach. So for those who want to relax, Dumaluan is the right place to be.
