Bohol is surrounded by a large number of small islands. One of them is Cabilao Island, which lies on the West of the main island of Bohol, facing Cebu island, in the Visayan Sea. Cabilao Island covers an area of approximately 8 square kilometers and is one of the smaller Philippine Islands.
Cabilao island consists of five barangays (villages) and belongs to the Municipality of Loon. The island has about 3,500 inhabitants living off of fishing and agriculture. Walking around the island without much motorized travel is an attraction in itself. You are likely to come across a farmer herding goats or a cow, or small houses with children playing.
On the island, hunting of birds is forbidden, and, as a result, you can see more birds here than in most of Bohol. A walk to the nearby island lake offers an insight to the daily life on Cabilao. Away from mass tourism and commercialisation you may discover the originality of the country and its people.
