Bohol Bee Farm – 2013

Bohol By April 2, 2013 Tags: , , , , , 1 Comment

There is always something new every time I pay Bohol Bee Farm a visit. This year is my third time in Bohol and Panglao Island. Ever since my first visit there, with Travel Factor and when Lia was only 8 months old, I make it a point to go to Bohol Bee Farm whenever I find myself in Bohol. Aside from the delicious food, I love the simplicity of the place. And it just keeps reinventing itself.

I didn’t blog extensively about my first visit there. Posting only a few photos of the beach in Dumaluan, where we were staying at. On my second visit there with my family, we stayed at Bohol Beach Club, right next to Dumaluan Beach Resort, and blogged about the trip extensively. Sadly, of all the 8 posts I made on that trip, only 2 survived the website crash in 2011. I still have to recover the posts. I might be able to recover them soon, but until then, only these two remain.

Too bad because I posted photos of Bohol Bee Farm from both 2009 and 2010 in one of the still-missing blog post.

On my way to the Tagbilaran airport, to catch a flight back to Manila, I had the habal-habal (motorcycle) drop by Bohol Bee Farm so I could buy some more of the squash muffins that I like so much. And then I took some more photos of the place.

They are always expanding at the farm. The restaurant now is even bigger. It is actually huge now! And even the store – they have also expanded the store. And even the lobby and receiving area. Maybe they even have more rooms now.

The deck for sunbathing. This is also where the boat docks for island hopping and dive trips. The stairs leading down is found near the restaurant.

[The Better Part of] Alona Beach, Panglao Island, Bohol

Anyone who asks me for a recommendation on resorts in Panglao Island, I almost always say, “If you like peace and quiet, do NOT stay at Alona Beach”. I would always recommend Bohol Beach Club because they have a fantastic beach front, or Dumaluan Beach Resort, because it has cheaper rooms and is right next to Bohol Beach Club, and if you are stealthy, you can slip into the beach of Bohol Beach Club and sunbathe yourself away.

If you want easy access to dive shops, yes, stay at Alona Beach. If you want a wide array of choices for restaurants, bars, and stores, yes, by all means, stay at Alona Beach. But if you want peace and quiet, stay away.

I am wrong though. There IS a nice part of Alona Beach I would, apparently, recommend – and it is the stretch of Alona Beach right in front of Alona Tropical Beach Resort. The beach here is beautiful! It is like the Station 1 of Alona Beach! (Station 1 of Boracay)
