Other Activities:
When you arrive on the island of Bohol you will be amazed by how lush and green it is. As you drive to the resort along the beautiful coastline it is clear to see that the main industry of the island is farming. You will pass by fields of rice, watermelons, peanuts and bananas to name a few of the crops grown here. You might be lucky enough to get a glimpse of the locals still using the traditional farming methods that have been passed down through generations.

The resort is situated in Anda, known as the “Jewel of Bohol”. Anda is located on a small peninsula on the Eastern tip of Bohol. It is still a hidden gem away from the main touristic areas, even though there is a beautiful untouched white sand beach, amazing view points and outstanding diving.
