Bilar

Often referred to as the eco-tourism center of Bohol, the town of Bilar offers peace and serenity that you’ll only find in the midst of nature, which is often absent in the hustle and bustle of life in the city.

Declared a National Park and known for its limestone formations, The Rajah Sikatuna Protected Landscape covers Bilar as well as six other neighboring towns. Enjoy endless hours watching the different species of birds that fly and rest in the area or spend the day in the depths of one of the park’s 130 caves. Different animals abound in the area so make sure to be in the look out for monkeys and the small primates that Bohol is known for, the tarsiers.

Nestled within the park is the Simply Butterflies Conservation Center. Home to a nature trail, garden, and butterfly enclosure, it’s a must-visit for those who simply adore these colorful winged insects.

The Bilar Man-made Forest, also known as the The Bohol Forest, is another favorite eco-tourism destination that lines the border of Bilar and the neighboring town of Loboc. This picturesque stretch of towering, decades-old mahogany trees reminiscent of the setting of Stephenie Meyers’ Twilight is a favorite among bikers and hikers.

Prefer water over land? Soak up in the fresh springs of Logarita Spring and Pool or try your hand at fishing and boating over at the Wahig-Pamacsalan Dam.
