Bohol is a large island of 4821 km² near Cebu. It's mostly known for the Chocolate Hills limestone rock formations, a series of round haycock hills, with a mound like shape, of which there are over 1200 on the island. Other highlights of the island are its native population of the Philippine tarsier, a rare primate of the approximately 45-million-year-old Tarsiidae family. Tourists also come for diving on Panglao island, one of the best diving spots in the Philippines. There are ferries connecting Bohol with Cebu and an airport with daily flights to Manila. Tagbilaran is the capital of Bohol.
