Anda is about 100 kilometers from Tagbilaran where the seaport is found. To get to Anda, you can take a bus (three hours) or a van (two hours) that goes straight to this town.

When it comes to pristine, white sand beaches, Boracay, Puerto Galera or Puerto Princessa are often listed as the most favored destinations. Nonetheless, people looking for an alternative destination should consider Anda Quinale White Sand Beach in Bohol.

Pamper your work-enslaved self, you deserve a break. In terms of fineness and whiteness, the white sand of Anda Quinale wins by a large margin when compared to the other destinations. The white sand in Anda Quinale White Sand Beach is on par if not better than Boracay White Beach or Entalula Beach in El Nido. In fact, a visitor from the United Nations World Tourism Organization has once praised it as the “finest sand” he has ever seen.

Stretch on a recliner, ease your aching muscles, grab a book and be lost in this palm-fringed tropical beach hideaway. Anda Quinale is also a great place to read up on your favorite book or simply stretch and relax your muscles with the tropical paradise as your background. How about exploring the vast stretch of the beach while you look for corals washed ashore? Or you can simply appreciate the setting of the sun and the gushing of the waves?

The main public beach stretches to about a couple of kilometers. The more secluded part of the beach is located a further two kilometers to the west. A statue of a World War II soldier serves as a landmark, a reminder of the American landing in this town during the war days.

When the smell of food gets to you, indulge: sidle into the nearby beach bar and relish on the bounties of the sea. From a fisherman’s daily catch, feast on grilled squid and fish, seafood-clam soup, vinegar-dipped blanched seashell meat, prawns and shrimps, crabs and sushi, they’re all in the menu.

Go barefoot across kilometric fine white sands: billions of finely ground corals caressed by the nursing tides, and washed into the lazy slopes of Quinale Beach. Or simply take a nourishing dip, frolic in the aquamarine sea and let the gently lapping water calm your nerves.
