After we experienced our city tour (click here: Day I: Bohol, Philippines City Tour), we headed to Anda, Bohol for the last stop of our Bohol trip. If you’re coming from the Chocolate Hills at Carmen, it will be about 75.3 km away or a two-hour drive going to Anda. At around 04:30 pm, we arrived at our hotel at Anda de Boracay Hotel – our home for three days and two nights while having fun in this place. Richard, one of my workmates who went with me on the trip, has a relative who works at the said hotel. Because of this, we got a 20% discount and paid only Php 6,000.00 (Php 1,000.00 per person) instead of Php 7,500.00. For our first night here, we simply had a nice dinner at our hotel. This was concluded with a short drinking session accompanied by a live band performance.

On the following day, I woke up early in the morning to experience the sunrise in Anda Bohol, and of course to capture the beautiful scenery. I really want to tell a story behind all the photos that I shared. Furthermore, I would like to take you to my own world and share with you my actual experiences in every story I write. Everything I write is based on the actual sequence of events or activities that we had.

To officially start our day, we had our team breakfast in our hotel and while eating, we just talked about anything under the sun, feeling relaxed and having fun on our vacation. We just sat on the terrace of the restaurant while enjoying the view of the white sand beach in front of our hotel. Around 10:00 am, we each took a bath to get ready for our next agenda – the “Libreng Pa-lunch Ni Mayor” courtesy of the family of Richard’s cousin-in-law – the Bolusa clan.

After our lunch, we started to explore the hidden beauties of Anda Bohol, Philippines. Here are some places that we visited;

Quinale Beach – I was in awe at how this beach is naturally stunning! The sea is calm and the white fine sand reminds me of Boracay, Philippines. Aside from that there are several activities that you can do here. Swimming, drink with friends in front of the beach, have a karaoke session, play volleyball, or simply have a picnic with your friends and family. We even rode a small motor boat to explore the other resorts!

A lifeguard is on duty to keep everyone at ease.

At around 3:30 pm, we left Quinale Beach and headed to Talisay Fishermen’s Association (TAFIAS) to try one of the delicacies of Anda, the “Tilapia Chips and Tilapia Ice Cream”. It tastes a bit weired for me so I just had one spooned of tilapia ice cream. My other friends though, loved it!

Combento Cave Pool – Entrance Fee is Php 20.00 and collected at the gate upon you enter.

Took a dip in the cave pool and I enjoyed it! The water of this cave comes from the sea, so it’s not cold. The pool is shallow, that’s why you’re not allowed to dive.

Cabagnow Cave Pool

At about 25ft deep, this is the deepest cave pool in Anda. The pool is like a huge hole where you can jump or dive if you were brave & adventurous enough to try! After your jump or dive, there is a ladder at the side of the pool for you to use to go up to the ground and jump again. Hahaha

On our last day, we left Anda de Boracay Hotel at around 08:00am and went back to Cebu. We then had our lunch at Rico’s Lechon, courtesy of our Finance Manager – Ms. Rems because we cannot leave Cebu City without trying their famed “Lechong Baboy”, I must say that the taste of Cebu lechon is so good, tasty and delicious.

After our lunch, we then went to Taboan Market and bought our “pasalubongs” like dangkit, dried pusit and many more! After that, we headed to Cebu Airport to fly back to Manila.
