Spanish Tower, Pamilacan

MACHINE TRANSLATION: Bohol Alona Beach or Danao Beach is an hour's drive from Banca. It's not an easy place to go, but the satisfaction is more than balikashak. If the day is bad, the travel time will be longer and you may have seasickness, so condition management is of paramount importance. It is a spectacular place for the Seasong colony and the hill of The Seonho. It's a good idea to divide the two places into two, as they don't have enough time to explore them at once. Down a gentle slope, about 35 meters deep, form a dense forest made up of white seapines.

MACHINE TRANSLATION: Over the sea, dozens of banner fish and a herd of western fish are no. Moving along the seascopic colony and rising slightly along the slope steadily reaches about 20m, such as sea surface and sea side, sea side, horn coral angelfish, antias, damsel, cleaner fish, antias and blue domes fill the empty space of the sea.
