Interesting historical site with caves

This place is one of the new cultural places prepared for visitors. Don't get me wrong - it's an old site, just more taken care of now, making it available for tourists. We... read more

We enjoyed this eco-tour developed locally that provides a glimpse into an undeveloped island with a past history as a burial ground. An excellent guide pointed out the many features of the island, which was reached by a paddle banca.

Should have been beautiful if preserved and well taken care of, however all cultural resources were pillage and the cave paintings are barely visible.

This place is one of the new cultural places prepared for visitors. Don't get me wrong - it's an old site, just more taken care of now, making it available for tourists. We spent a few hours one day going here. We were happy for the advise we got upfront telling us to "go early" in the day. Later, with... More

As a town far away from the city surely it is a place full of enchanting stories and a visit to the Lamanok Island will for sure give you more idea how "wizarding" or "witchcraft" can affect people in the island. The tour is 300 per person contrary to what the Anda tourism has informed us that it is 300... More

This trip started out very well, amazing wooden bridge through the mangroves, local guides paddling us to the caves in small canoes, very scenic hut in the water ensuring you remembered you were visiting a foreign country. The initial walk to the caves was great, beautiful trees and views from the cliffs. It was also initially interesting to hear the... More

This trip (takes about 2 hours) is highly recommended. Great scenery and interesting insight into faith, superstition and spirited. Our guide Mr Simbagon was very clever. Topping it off with a visit to his village where we were served coconuts straight from the tree. Do not miss this one folks!

This was such an interesting side trip and I was so glad I did it. Just making the tricycle and boat trip to the island is an interesting experience in itself. The caves were a burial site probably from Neolithic times so the well informed guide who takes you from site to site has quite a story to tell. Highly... More

Locals row you over to the island and show you around. Very low cost trip. Incredibly friendly and informative. Help the local economy. Take a look at a local village and really beautiful mangroves and coastline. A brilliant journey.

It all began with a wonderful journey across the mangrove bushes over a bamboo bridge. The trip was all the more brilliant because of the friendly guide who accompanied us as we went over to the Bohol Island and had a beautiful brush with the Lamanok caves. The place with its captivating beauty and deep footprints of Philippino culture left... More
