Situated along the north coast of Bohol Province, Philippines, Calibao is a small island. It lies 30 kilometers from Tagbilaran, capital of Bohol Island province. Calibao is connected to the neighboring island of Sandingan through a regular boat service. Sandingan is linked to Bohol through a bridge. A boat trip to Calibao costs only 20 Pesos and 15 minutes from Bohol. These small boats carry seven passengers at a time. The island of Calibao is an amazing diving retreat. Surrounding the island is a coral reef which has a steep depth of an overwhelming 50 meters. The side of the island that faces Cebu is perhaps the most beautiful of all others and has two dive centers. In addition to the local dive tours, the island also hosts tours from Alona Beach and Cebu. You can routinely see such dive boats infront of the beach close to the surrounding reef. The other dive sites worth a visit are South point (a stunning drop off), Fallen Tree, Cambaces and Gorgonian Wall. The visibility is always a good 30 meters and the marine life in these waters is immensely rich and diverse.
