Welcome to Dauin
Dauin (dow-in) is a small coastal town on the Bohol Sea, but diving has put it on the international traveller's radar. It's known for macro diving in the Masaplod Norte marine reserve, and as a base for trips to nearby Apo Island, as well as for good snorkelling over the drop-off about 20m from shore. The beach itself, generated partly by volcanic ash, is not attractive, so you'll probably stick to resort pools. Most resorts – and the number is expanding – offer local excursions, such as popular Twin Lakes and Lake Balanan trips. The sulphur Baslay hot springs are nearby too.
