This tropical municipality located on the island of Bohol is known for its popular lunch cruises that take crews of eager travelers along the Loboc River. A highlight of this afternoon excursion is—in addition to buffet lunch—a liver performance by the famed Loboc Children’s Choir. This world-renowned group comprised of youthful voices has made a name for itself in competitions across the globe.
Travelers who prefer land to water can explore the iconic Loboc Church, which was built in the early 1600s. Its stone façade and religious detailing is a clear example of Jesuit colonial influence on this tiny municipality. Visitors will find ornate stone carvings, colorful stucco paintings and intriguing gargoyles, as well as other medieval creatures.
Loboc is located about 25 kilometers east of Tagbilaran.
