There are many masseurs at the beach but if you don’t fancy sand sticking to your body and you prefer privacy, I would recommend you to visit Duchess Salon and Spa on the Alona Beach Road. Don’t expect a typical hotel like spa but
the place is clean and staff is well trained. We spoiled ourselves with Swedish massage every day.
Vendors and tourists kiosks are located at the beach and along Alona Beach Road.
From the Alona Beach you can take a trip to:
Balicasag Island which is considered as one of the best diving and snorkeling spots.
2) Virgin Island – small uninhabited island with a picturesque sandbar.
3) Bohol Island –
for sightseeing heritage sites and natural attractions.
4) Pamilican Island – a relaxing day and dolphin and whale sharks watching.
5) Oslob in Cebu Island – snorkeling or
scuba diving with whale sharks.
6) Trip around Panglao Island.
We visited most of the above.
