Hinagdanan Cave - (Preserved Nature) - Bohol, Philippines

Hinagdanan Cave is a small cave in Dauis, in Panglao Island, Bohol. The entrance is a little bit steep and dark once you go down. Take note, it is not a handicap-accessible area.
Once inside, you would notice that the cave is naturally lighted cavern with a deep lagoon which is 10-12 meters deep. Swimming is allowed in the lagoon, but you have to pay extra if you are on a package tour. In our case, swimming was not included in our package tour which we did understand due to time constraints.

The cave has beautiful rock formations of stalactites and stalagmites surrounding the underground lake. It is considered as a wondrous cave in the province of Bohol. 
Its name Hinagdanan means "laddered" which got its name when the cave was discovered by a farmer while clearing his land property through a hole. He became curious, so he built a ladder to go down and access the cave and discovered it is a hidden beauty!

During the WWII, the cave was once a hideout by the locals from the Japanese, but they still were found.

Bohol Bee Farm is Bee-autiful!

One of the most commonly visited place when in Panglao Island, Bohol is the Bohol Bee Farm. I can say it is an environment-friendly farm-resort because food come from organically-grown veggies, plus, of course, they have bees!...(they offer bee tours ;)) that produce honey and sell them to the public.

They also promote organic farming and healthy food. (I agree with that!) The food was great when we had a sumptuous lunch there!

Bohol Bee farm is both a resort and a restaurant where you can relax with a homey experience. If you love the beach, it is also one of the place to stay for sun bathing, snorkeling or go swimming at the indoor pool.

Tour can be arranged if you are interested about the livelihood programs they do and getting up close with the bees! (this is a fun tour)!

By the way, they have the best-yummiest ice cream so far, while I was in Panglao Island!  ;) - this is not a paid promotion, just sharing my experience. :))
