Coming back to Pandanon Island

ISLAND PARADISE. This photo was taken in 2010 when there were fewer visitors and beach huts on Pandanon Island you'd think you had the island to yourself.
ISLAND PARADISE. This photo was taken in 2010 when there were fewer visitors and beach huts on Pandanon Island you’d think you had the island to yourself.

We went to Pandanon Island off the coast of Bohol in 2010 and found a postcard view of a tropical paradise. We went back last week to find it slightly changed.

There are now more cottages on the beach, for one.

When we were there last week, another hut was being built. For someone smitten by the place, it’s cause for worry – whether it’s sustainable. A resident said the island is so full on weekends it’s hard to move around. It was lucky that we were there on a weekday.
