There are several resorts found dotted along the coconut-filled seashore. Resorts here have fair rates, a bit lower than those beach in Tawala. What’s perfect here is the solitary life, the coolness because of the shade of many trees, fine sand and crystal clear waters, and finally the vibrant underwater life near the drop, difficult to find at the more famous beach fronts.
Whenever I come back to my hometown and go adventure cycling in Bohol, Doljo would always be top on my list. From my place, it’s just a little over an hour of pedaling. The refreshing water and tranquility of the place would drown out any tired feelings I have.
Some areas of the beach stretch are open to the public. That’s where I usually go and hang out; not spending a single dime for this trip despite enjoying the sun, sand, and waters we usually pay for.
There are several sprouting resorts and hotels, but I’m still hoping the place will still maintain its serenity.
I had a chance to meet-up my travel blogger idol, Christian of Lakad Pilipinas (check out his site for awemazing photographs!) and we snorkeled here. We wore life vests and went several meters, perhaps over a hundred into the open sea. We wanted to see the drop and the pretty things that usually can be found near the drop.
The corals are better than the ones in Alona, though not as great as Balicasag’s. They still have plenty of colorful corals and fish. Fish here are small though, and a bit shy so they kind of swim away when you approach them.
