Mystical Town of Anda Bohol

Anda is an ecological gem and its most dazzling facets are natural and historical-cultural treasures. Get a front-seat experience at the sea turtle conservation project at Turtle Hatchery in Brgy. Bacong. Or watch bats at Badiang's Lamanoc Island and be sheltered to the more than the usual Mangrove Forest. Surely Anda is the place that anyone has in mind to escape the empty enchantment of city life. Free of rush, of deadlines, pollution, incessant noise, and of the grinding gridlock.
