“Away from the maddeing crowd”
Review of Pangangan Island

Ranked #43 of 118 things to do in Bohol Island
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 September 2014

Pangangan Island, 50km from Tagbilaran or 26 km from Tubigon Port can be a peaceful place to stay except during fiesta times mainly in May. Other small fiestas occur at other times. Experience local Filipino hospitality and culture without all the touristy embellishments of more well-known destinations. Ideal for holiday makers or day-trippers. It pays to check tide times on local calendars and come when the tide is high if you enjoy water-based activities.
The Isle of View kayak mangrove eco-tour is inexpensive and offers great photo opportunities.

Take a V-hire from Tagbilaran City Airport to any of the islands resort hotels or lodging houses like JAV, Isle of View, Isla Hayahay or more. Nearest to the area is Isle of View. Ask the resort management to guide you, rent a banca or kayak. If you are in Isle of View, the owner, Bill Temby can guide you into the mangrove forest. The water is mostof the time calm, see century old mangrove trees. One interesting scene are the macaques monkeys inhabiting the area. These monkeys learned to fish and gather shells for their meals though they still eat other stuffs. The place is still virgin to visitors that monkeys are still shy. But if you are lucky you can see them fishing, gather shells and crabs which surely amaze you, how they do it.
Just be careful with your things and food stuffs, monkeys will steal anything they suspect for food.
You can also walk or ride along the 3.5km historic causeway connecting the island of Pangangan to the main island of Bohol. See the grown mangrove and resorts along side.
