How to go to Sagbayan Peak in Province of Bohol?

Therefore, I decided to write this article regarding Bohol’s one of its top of the line tourist spot which was also a victim of a devastating earthquake. I was lucky to visit this place before the earthquake attacked towards the province. Right now, you can set back and relax because I will bring you to Sagbayan Peak.

⏰UPDATE AS OF MAY 26, 2018

For the third time, I visited this place. 

After the extreme challenge that I took at EAT Danao which is "The Plunge", we headed towards our last destination - SAGBAYAN PEAK. Sagbayan Peak is very similar of Chocolate Hills where you can chase the small hills in its surroundings. We decided to grab our dinner at the Restaurant in Sagbayan Peak.  I was no longer in the mood to create a vlog because of the aftershock from “The Plunge”.  


After our dinner, it’s time for us to leave my beloved Bohol and travel via sea heading towards CEBU- where our new adventures continue.
