I imagine Rice Terraces are only in Benguet but seeing here in Bohol was really fascinating. This is my first time seeing Rice Terraces and I fell for it, specially local people who work and preserved it. As cheesy as this sounds, when you are here, and you see the beautiful terraces and fell the breeze of the wind, you’d feel amazed by how magnificent this places is. It would make you ask yourself ‘How can something as beautiful as this be Man Made?!’
The farmers are busy harvesting rice and it was an amazing experience to see how they do it the old fashion way. On top of the hill was like heaven on earth! So peaceful. I will definitely would like to recommend to all travelers and come see bohol little secret.

The place is just ordinary but when look at the cave is so amazing and thrilling. Another one again on my bucket list.
Talisay Beach is just a few steps from Cabagnow Cave. The beach are just seagrasses and lot leaves of trees and coconuts bordering its shore and its normal. This part fisherman locally park their boats and you can see hanging out by the beach.
The sand is fine and beach is quite good one thing locals and travelers should clean and maintain it so the beauty stays with it and travelers be responsible about the disposing trash.
