The lagoon inside the cave is quite inviting for a dip but it is advised not to swim because of the karst pollutants in the water.

This is the first and only man-made forest in the Philippines which is planted by the students of Holy Name University many years ago.

#6 - Philippine Tarsier and Wildlife Sanctuary: No, we did not forget our cute little tarsiers in Bohol. This world's smallest primate can be found particularly in this sanctuary that aims to conserve and preserve the habitat of the tarsiers. They are quite sensitive so tourists are not allowed to touch them and take pictures with camera flash on.
