    Not a good experience
    Beach is only cleaned once a week - piles of smelly rotting sea grass (except in front of Henann Resort which cleaned daily). Trash in water and oily residue from all the motor boats. Sand beach itself is only 5 meters wide. Plenty of bars, restaurants, and massage places make it crowded at night.

    Low season- perfect
    Travelling through Bohol lots but I do like time spent here in Alona. Nice water to swim with plenty options for drink and food. Spent 3 days around here just relaxing and enjoying the space. For sure with September + the tourist will arrive, Alona will become very busy and noisy with party times. I prefer low season to better enjoy

    Alona Beach is a testimony to awfulness….
    It’s such a shame to see a beautiful beach and town turned into a dump. So surprised when we got here. Reviews and pictures certainly looked decent enough. However this place is awful. About time we checked out and went somewhere (anywhere) better than this.

    A bit surprised
    It looks like a little Boracay. Lots of restaurants & bars. Lots of massages offered and there are massages with a happy ending offered to the boys during the night😲. It's unbelievable, I mean It looked like a decent beach on photos but its not specially during the night. It's great for boys night out partying and drinking.

After reading that alona beach is the small version of boracay white beach (which we visited and is gorgeous) we were a bit disappointed - beach is not nearly as nice, there are some pebbles and quite a bit of seaweed (but may also be seasonal or weather related). Must be careful of the sea urchins

We travelled to several places on Bohol and Cebu and were quite disappointed by Alona Beach. The beach is not nice. Loud music. They have opened an airport in 2019 and there are direct flights from Korea bringing many tourists to this place. You will feel like in Korea.

The beach is nothing like the pictures I've seen online. The beach is dirty and there's garbage everywhere!

This is the most horrible place in Philippines, don't understand why is so popular. Hundreds of people asking is you want massages, food, trips and souvenirs. Restaurants are all bad but expensive, same as hotels. Beach is white but dirty and short. Paled with American and Korean tourists for nothing. Prostitution is very diffused. Avoid it!

Sadly, it is not worth visiting anymore. Alona beach is full of commercial establishment, overcrowded, noisy and polluted.

Even the beach in front of Bellevue resort has presence of green algae
