Not the greatest beach in the Philippines. Lots of boats and bars. The far western end has more seclusion.

Not as good or as elaborate as Boracay but great nonetheless. Would be a great place to visit for anyone coming to Bohol.

We opted for the hotel shuttle to Alona Beach. The beach was busy with locals and tourists alike. There was an abundance of restaurants and takeaway vendors. Alona Beach is the place to go for a cheap massage right there on the beach.
