The Philippines has plenty to offer regardless of the type of tourist you might be: city-lovers would flock to the bustling capital city of Manila, while beach bums would simply love relaxing on the pristine beaches of Boracay. As for nature-lovers, the island of Bohol offers plenty for the regular Green Panther or even exercise mogul. If you’re planning a trip there or are intrigued by the thought of a visit to this serene island, don’t forget to pay a visit to the Chocolate Hills, aptly named after their brown hues. These natural limestone formations all exhibit a unique dome shape, which has been astounding visitors for centuries! Even if you’re not the kind to scale peaks, the island’s fine white sand beaches and clear blue waters are the perfect environment to relax and unwind in.

The island isn’t all greenery and forests either; the South hosts the capital city of Tagbilaran, where you’ll find shopping centres, restaurants and bars. Sounds perfect after days of exploring the island! With so much to see and do on Bohol, it’s no wonder that it’s quickly becoming one of Asia’s top tourist destinations. If your fingers are itching to book a flight to the island, check out these 8 best Airbnbs in Bohol, The Philippines while you’re at it!

1. Little apartment house by the sea (from USD 48)

This little apartment, overlooking the unassuming city of Tagbilaran, offers the perfect space to relax and unwind after a day of exploring all the island has to offer. This Bohol accommodation also has a large balcony that hangs right over the water, and where you can enjoy scrumptious breakfast or stunning sunsets. You’ll find a number of beautiful white beaches, the port and airport nearby. If you’d like to venture further, Alona beach is 20 km (12.4 mi) away and you can get there in roughly 25 minutes away by car. The apartment for two is found in a local residential area instead of the regular tourist beach strip, so you can enjoy some peace and quiet and really soak up the island’s culture. Don’t be afraid to contact the friendly hosts if you have any further queries.

2. Sunset view villa room (from USD 81)

For those you simply need a private space to rest, check out this private room in a stunning villa. The modern and minimalist space is set on a cliff that overlooks a lovely small beach and the crystal blue waters. Guests enjoy their own private bathroom and hot shower in the air-conditioned rooms. Another great perk is the complimentary breakfast, which guests can eat up in front of the stunning beach view. Do note that the kitchen is not available for guest use, which shouldn’t be a problem since there are many recommended and affordable restaurants nearby. The hosts recommend renting a motorbike or car for your stay as it’s the best way to get around the island. It also offers more flexibility and freedom for your travels, since you aren’t confined by transportation restrictions. In this case, speak to the hosts and see how they can help organise your vehicle booking or hire you a private driver.

5. La Vela (from USD 51)

This apartment for rent in Bohol allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds since it is close to both urban and rural landscapes. For days when you need to do a grocery shop, the mall is just five minutes away by car or scooter. As for when you want nothing more but to laze on the beach in the sun, Alona beach is a mere 25-minute ride away. If you take it one step further and just want to laze in the beautiful apartment, you could always deliver your food to the listing! The space is good for two, and it’s important to note that the hosts do not allow children to stay on the premises, as the bumpy and rough roads leading up to the house could prove a safety hazard.

During your Bohol vacation, rent this clean, big and beautiful space for two that has everything you would need on holiday, and more!

Not to mention, the nearest beach is a short 10 minutes by car or bike. The listing has onsite bike rentals for your convenience, so be sure to check that out with the host.

8. Vacation house in Carmen, Bohol (from USD 27)

This cosy wooden cottage is actually the host’s vacation house, which she only uses for a total of a month or so every year. When she and her loved ones aren’t enjoying the comforts of this space, she makes it available for travellers to rest and recuperate in. Guests will occupy a private room and enjoy access to the shared living spaces. For your convenience, the host has a driver’s contact and scooters available for rent, great for exploring the island on your own terms. Once you do get your rental vehicle of choice, set off to admire views from Chocolate Hills that are just a 15-minute drive away and one of the best things to do in Bohol.
