             BOHOL TOURISM INDUSTRY PROFILE
     There is more in Bohol than just the Chocolate Hills.  A large part of Bohol's exotic appeal lies in its natural won- ders.
     Pristine white-sand bea- ches with clear blue waters and colorful coral reefs dot the coastline, offering one of the world's best diving havens.
     Its cascading waterfalls, unexplored caves and bubbly springs are added advantage to the island's paradise prestige.

        Other tourist attractions include the Hinagdanan Cave, Mag-aso Falls, Badiang Spring, Balicasag Island, Pamilacan Island, Blood Compact Site, Punta Cruz, and river boat rides to Busay Falls, among others.

        The cornerstone of tourism investment in Bohol is the Panglao Island Tourism Estate (PITE).  Home to prestigious Bohol Beach Club, Panglao is the largest island municipality in the province.  Existing recreational facilities in Panglao are oriented towards snorkeling, diving and sailing. Dis- tinctly missing are restaurants and shopping outlets.

       PITE requires an investment of about P300 million.   The government will provide basic infra- structure, while the private sector is expected to invest in beach resorts, retirement home villages, golf courses and restaurants.

        To be located in the southern coastline of Panglao is the proposed Sikatuna Tourism Develop- ment Complex.  It will sit on 437 hectares of land and beach area.  The complex will accommodate a 60-hectare hotel zone, beach resorts, and a marina.  The plan includes the construction of a han- dicraft village complete with a landscaped mini-urban park, a five-hectare sports center, a 50-hectare botanical garden, a second-home village and an airport.
