Spirit in the Philippines

  • Beautiful nature, rivers, white beaches, relatively unexploited
  • Eastern Bohol, one of the Philippines' most beautiful islands
  • Fabulous variety of diving, waterfalls, ghost animals, Chocolate Hills and more

Spirit in the Philippines and the island of Bohol is probably one of the most beautiful islands in the Philippines. Here you will find beautiful untouched nature, waterfalls, extensive rice fields, nice beaches and here there is plenty to experience and do besides diving. The city of Tagbilaran is the capital of the island and you can get here by ferry or plane. Further transfer by car to your resort along the coast or you take the long trip and take the opportunity to see the world-famous Chocolate Hills. Or perhaps combine with watching the small strange ghost animals. That transfer then takes the ice rink 4-6 hours, depending on how long you want to spend on the experiences

Anda is on the eastern side and mass tourism has not yet found its way here, so there is a lot of relaxation and peace and quiet. In addition to that, lots of nice and varied diving. Flat coral reefs, slopes, coral and sponge chained walls, stream diving, lots of small funny animals. Larger animals such as turtles, barracudas, reef sharks and sometimes even whale sharks pass by here. Anda is a lovely place to combine with other places and before it starts growing here take the opportunity to treat yourself to experience this lovely part of the Philippines. It can also be combined with one live board with cruises in both Tubbataha and the Visayas.
