arrrived late in the afternoon in tagbilaran city, hired a tricycle from airport to alona beach, panglao island where the driver helped us to seek the cheapest lodging along the beach. by the way, panglao island is an hour distance from the airport, thus, the tricyle fare will range from a minimum of php200 depending on your negotiation skills. the famous bohol beach club (bbc) is also located on this island. then, as advise by the driver, we spent the night in alona bamboo house located almost 50 meters away from the beach. after checking-in, i spent some photo-ops due to the sunset on the beach. afterwards, some beachbumming at night then have our dinner beside the beach also. alona beach nightlife is like the white beach in puerto galera wherein it is very lively due to the acoustic bands specially fridays.
