Bohol offers many options for firefly watching–by boat tour, kayaking, or while on a floating restaurant.
Can-umantad Falls is the most beautiful waterfall ever seen in Bohol. At 60 feet, Can-umantad looks like a single drop waterfall from afar, but upon closer inspection, it actually has three distinct layers. Going here takes about 30 minutes from the Poblacion of Candijay.
Hiking at Himontagon Hills, aka Morning Hills, is a good way to start or end your day, especially if you’re into hiking, mountaineering, or simply wandering about.
With a slow trek, you can reach the mountain top in 45 minutes. Morning Hills is located in Loay, a 15-minute bus ride from Tagbilaran City.
Danao Sea of Clouds is a view that can’t be beat and it’s safe to say that it’s worth the three-hour bus ride from Tagbilaran City.
Located at Mt. Puntaas, this spot should be visited during the wee hours of the morning as the thick sea of clouds is only visible from sunrise until around 7AM.
