I'm strongly recommended visit this place,... More

A good place to explore while in Anda. We are escorted by one of the best tourist guides in Bohol, Mang Fortunato. He keeps his tour interesting with history, folklore and jokes.... They are currently constructing a bamboo restaurant in the area, which will be operational this March.

Very good idea to spend a while since there is not much to do in Anda - it took us 2 hours once we reached there - people are nice and after a quick boat ride along the mangrove, they will take you through the different caves in the island

Really enjoyed hiking the trails here and our guide was very knowledgeable about the island and the area. He had some good humor and really enjoyed telling the spirit filled stories of this island! Would definitely come back again to this magical mystical little island.

Trip Advisor also lists this as Lamanoc Caves. They are the same. It was an interesting tour about primary and secondary burials on the island but almost all of the artifacts have been removed and we were told were in the basement of the National Museum. It would have been much more interesting if we could see them. Unlike most... More

So place is nice. Great history and guide made it super interesting. Great use of community based tourism didnt mind paying as I knew it was going towards the community.

It was ok. I liked the canoe ride over and you can snorkel (not great visibility) to see live giant clams which I thought was neat. The island is quite muggy with smelly mud, but it was nice to see the cave drawings and fossils.

At first we hesitated in going to Lamanok island but it was definitively worth the trip! Try to get there at 3pm, to enjoy the sunset when coming back (or early morning - the park opens at 8am). Ride a few km from Anda to reach the ecopark entrance gate. From then you will walk a 330m-bamboo trail built on... More
