Bohol is a Visayan tropical haven that constantly draws tourists with its natural beauty, hilly landscape, and long stretches of idyllic white-sand beaches. It is an up-and-coming Philippine destination and is getting attention not just from local tourists but from international travelers as well.
The simple, relaxed life on Bohol’s beautiful beaches is the number one draw card for tourism here. Crystal clear waters and outstanding coral reefs have helped Bohol gain clout with the snorkeling and diving community. Dolphins and whales are also frequent visitors to the Boholano waters, giving tourists an added incentive to head out to sea. These whale sightings are most frequent between the months of March and June.
Prime months for visiting Bohol are November to February, when the climate is slightly cooler. Summer months (March to May) are slightly hotter than the rest of the country. If you want to see the famous Chocolate Hills in their chocolate color, you will have to go during the summer months. Take note however that Bohol does not have a very clear-cut dry season, so it can pretty much rain any day of the year, with chances of heavy showers between November to January.
June is usually the beginning of the wet season in the country and rains continue to fall until late in the year. Occasional typhoons emerge during the season, though coastal areas receive plenty of advance notice so tourists are seldom at risk. The only real concerns with inclement weather are flight delays and cancellations.
