Island Hopping in Bohol

But just when I am becoming satiated with Bohol’s many wonders, I come face to face with its islands!

This is considered to be a mecca of diving and snorkelling but since we are running out of time, I wasn’t able to snorkel! Too bad. I walked in the area for a bit, and soon I hopped on the boat to the Virgin island!

For those who are saying that Bohol is too touristy, too crowded, better head to Virgin Island to know that there are beautiful remote and private spots in Bohol that you can enjoy! When I was there, I can only look at utter amazement at the beautiful expanse of blue sea. The gradient of turquoise to blue is amazing. I swear I can stare at the seas for a whole day. Beautiful!

Virgin Island is an island with a sandbar. You can walk into the very thin sandbar leading to an islet with fine white sand surrounding it. It was amazing! It's like being transported.
While I was there, I saw ladies selling fresh coconut and sea urchins.

I feel like I was transported to somewhere else!!! Sigh! I will come back to this place again, I promise!
