There is lots of places to stay on Panglao, the best locations are the breachfront
resorts but of course they are also the most expensive!, staying a little
further from the beach means more walking but less cost...
There are several beaches around the island, the main well known one is Alona
Beach - photo above - which is also the busiest beach and you can do everything
here, there are numerous bars, cafes, dive centres, massages, island tours
and places to stay, the beach is pleasant and it is easy to arrive and spend
your entire time just on Alona Beach.
If you like a bit more space to yourself and some peace and quiet then head a little further around the island and head to either Bikini beach or the best beach on the island ...
